Actress Margot Kidder, who played Lois Lane in the original Superman movies, passed away this weekend.

Funeral arrangements are pending, according to Franzen-Davis Funeral Home and Crematory in Livingston, Montana. A manic episode left Kidder disoriented and living rough for a few days in Los Angeles, an experience she went on to discuss publicly as she advocated for mental health issues.

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.

It is cited as an essential inspiration by makers of modern day Marvel and DC films.

When starring in the Superman movies, Margot was considered a pinup and often landed magazine covers, earning her a large fan base. And of course she remains the best Lois Lane in the magical "Superman" & "Superman II".

As well as being an active mental health campaigner, Kidder was also a vocal opponent of the divisive Keystone XL oil pipeline and was arrested in 2011 as she protested against its development outside the White House.

Kidder and Reeve were relative unknowns when they got their leading parts in the first of the films in 1978, which also included big names Gene Hackman and Marlon Brando.

Apart from Superman films, she was also known for cult classics like Black Christmas and Sisters.

"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.

American actor Mark Hamill posted, "On-screen she was magic". They made her what used to be the girlfriend, which kind of ended in the 60s with women's rights.

She dated then-Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau in the 1980s, calling him the "love of my life, my true love" in her radio interview last week. However, it was unquestionably her time as Lois Lane (she was the third actress to portray the character in live action) that propelled her to worldwide fame, and she obtained the role after taking a break from acting following her daughter's birth in 1976.
