Actress Margot Kidder of "Superman" fame died on Sunday, May 14, at the age of 69.

"I guess she will always be known for Lois Lane; she will be known for the most popular film she was in". Kidder also acted on stage, including Broadway's 2002 production of The Vagina Monologues.

Kidder kicked off her Lois Lane career in 1978 in the first Christopher Reeve-led "Superman" film and ended her run with 1987's "Superman IV: The Quest for Peace". She was determined that she was going to be a star.

There are iconic roles and then there's Lois Lane, the intrepid reporter and paramour of Superman who's made her mark on the comics world for 80 years.

Canadian-born Kidder also appeared in 1975's "The Great Waldo Pepper" with Robert Redford and 1978's "The Amityville Horror". She went on to pick up an Emmy Award for her performance on the children's television series R.L. Stine's "The Haunting Hour" in 2015.

Kidder was in a auto crash in December 1990, after which she was unable to work for two years, causing her financial problems. She eventually turned up in someone's back yard, telling the homeowner, "I may not look like it, but I'm Margot Kidder". She married to more times, including to "Home Alone" actor John Heard. She subsequently became an avid spokesperson for people suffering from bipolar disorder, which had plagued her for years.

Margot Kidder's sister says the Canadian-born actress shared a courageous spirit with Lois Lane, the tough-as-nails journalist she played on screen.

Kidder was a supporter of Democratic and liberal causes both in the United States and Canada.

Kidder was also fearlessly outspoken as a pro-environment, anti-war activist. She became an American citizen in 2005 so that she could participate in voting.

During the 2016 presidential race, she threw her support behind Bernie Sanders. In 2011, she was arrested outside of the White House for protesting against the Keystone XL pipeline. And as long as people watch superhero movies, she'll continue to fly across the silver screen.

She added that attendees will be able to "visit her booth" to honour Margot and celebrate her life. "In a way, I think the movies we have now wouldn't exist if it wasn't for "Superman: The Movie" and Margot Kidder, for me, is a big part of why that was so successful". "Your legacy will live on forever".
