Margot Kidder, the Canadian-born actress who played Lois Lane in "Superman", has died.

Lois's first meeting with her becaped intended, caught in mid-air after falling from a helicopter is one of the great introductions in cinema - 'You've got me?

Funeral arrangements are pending, according to Franzen-Davis Funeral Home and Crematory in Livingston, Montana. "I just fell in love with her".

She was also known for her work as a mental health advocate. In 2004, she revisited her Superman legacy by guesting on the show Smallville as Bridgette Crosby.

Later in life, Margot Kidder battled mental illness and was briefly homeless in 1996. At the time, Kidder had been working on an autobiography when her laptop computer was infected with a virus, which caused it to crash and her to lose three years' worth of drafts.

"I guess she will always be known for Lois Lane; she will be known for the most popular film she was in". She eventually became bankrupt.

"She led the way brilliantly", Hatcher wrote.

"What happened to me-the biggest nervous breakdown in history, bar possibly Vivien Leigh's-is not so uncommon", Kidder told The Guardian in a 2005 interview.
