Friend says Margot Kidder had unusual wish for her remains

Gone too soon Margot Kidder who starred in four Superman films has died at age 69 here she is seen in 1980 with Christopher Reeve in Superman II

The cause of death for the 69-year-old actress is unknown at this point, but her passing was confirmed to CNN by her manager.

Kidder's mix of NY, city-beat street sass and sweet, wide-eyed innocence was a complete one-off.

Margaret Ruth Kidder was born on October 17, 1948, in Yellowknife, in the Northwest Territories of Canada. She fizzed and crackled with intelligence and energy; she was devoted to getting the story even in the midst of a date with an alien superbeing. My heart goes out to her family and friends.

Her sister said the actress treasured some of the smaller roles she had later in her life.

While most will remember Margot Kidder for her most iconic role, Lois Lane, from 1978's Superman, her acting career began in the late 1960s. Kumail Nanjiani reflected on her film Black Christmas, while Mark Hamill wrote, "she was one of the kindest, sweetest, most caring woman I've ever known".

She maintained a close friendship with her Superman co-star Christopher Reeve, which lasted from 1978 until his death in 2004.

There are doubts about whether Thomas Markle plans to attend Saturday's royal wedding . The Associated Press has been unable to reach him for comment.

Marlon Brando, Gene Wilder, Robert Redford, Rod Steiger and Gene Hackman were among her leading men who she shared the screen with. And she stood up for Richard Donner, too, when he got fired after the first Superman, right before we finished shooting Superman 2.

He said Kidder's spin on Lane was "feminist" for its time, influencing not only later iterations of the character, but superhero love interests throughout the comic book world.

Kidder previously echoed that sentiment in a 1996 interview with People, where she said, "I just have to accept the fact that this is me, or I ain't gonna make it". She lived on the street for days, until police found her and took her to a psychiatric hospital.

As an activist, she became an advocate for mental health sufferers and was arrested in Washington, D.C.in August, 2011 for protesting against an oil project. There was only one true Margot Kidder. "I think that we're better off for having people...that were courageous enough to admit that they were having problems". A spark of vivacious life in all of her films. "In struggling with her mental health, she was also determined that there shouldn't be a stigma around that".

I assume that since we're sleazy idiots, Kidder wasn't a regular reader, and spent her time Googling her own name.
