Lois Lane actress dies

Margot Kidder Christopher Reeve at the 51st Annual Academy Awards

Kidder starred opposite Christopher Reeve as Lois Lane in 1978's Superman and its three sequels, Superman II, Superman III, and Superman IV: The Quest for Peace.

Chief Strategist for Barack Obama's presidential campaigns, David Axelrod, wrote, "Margot Kidder should be remembered as much for courageously, candidly discussing her battles with mental illness as for any screen role". Her manager confirmed her death at her home in Montana to CNN.

"It introduced some elements that are now genre tropes and she's fantastic in it", comedian and actor Kumail Nanjiani said on Twitter on Monday.

Kidder had struggled with bipolar disorder during her life, which was the cause for a highly-publicized manic episode in 1996. She did not hesitate to speak out against the Gulf War in the '90s; her environmental activism led her to protest against the Keystone XL pipeline and join Mark Ruffalo, Pete Seeger and dozens of other celebrities in their ongoing fight against fracking.

Cure for the common cold? Incredible molecule shows real promise
This molecule will also work against the viruses related to the common cold (polio, foot, and mouth disease viruses). The Imperial College researchers reported that IMP-1088 blocked the common cold without affecting healthy cells.

American actor Elijah Wood tweeted, "oh no, Margot Kidder".

Superman, directed by Richard Donner and released in 1978, was a superhero blockbuster two decades before comic book movies became the norm at the top of the box office.

Apart from Superman films, she was also known for cult classics like Black Christmas and Sisters. "I just have to accept the fact that this is me, or I ain't gonna make it". The Lois Lane she created had so much strength, humor and vulnerability that she became as much a part of what made the movie work as the wonderful Chris Reeve, Gene Hackman and others.

The original video was deleted by Facebook, but Przytula said it had more than 56,000 views and about 300 shares. He had the ring in his pocket and even had his 11-year-old daughter getting video of the life changing moment.

"There was only one true Lois Lane".

And courage. Kidder was intelligent and articulate; she had a magnetic personality - and the world's sexiest laugh - but above all, she was fearless in addressing mental health issues.

She was married and divorced three times and is survived by her only child, daughter Maggie, and three children.
