The actress died at her home in Livingston, Montana, on Sunday, however her cause of death is now unknown.

Kidder passed away in her Montana home. But instead of aiming to get it for the fame that will surely come with it, Kidder has a different reason why she wanted to be Lois Lane. Hatcher portrayed Lois' mother, while Kidder played Bridgette Crosby, the assistant to scientist Virgil Swann - portrayed by none other than her Superman co-star Christopher Reeve.

Co-creator of several Marvel characters, Brian Michael Bendis, remembered the actor and wrote, "I rewatched all the superman the movie extras when we were prepping on powers and Margot Kidder's audition is a flawless moment for the ideal actor".

After sleeping on the streets, days later Margot was found and placed in psychiatric care, at which point she later revealed: "Finally, I was able to accept the diagnosis".

The veteran actress was known for her iconic role in the superhero movie, along with her iconic roles in "The Great Waldo Pepper" and "Some Kind of Hero".

She won a Daytime Emmy Award in 2015 for her role on the children's TV show "R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour".

She continued to act in her later years but her popularity waned after she suffered a highly publicized mental breakdown in 1996.

Kidder married and divorced three times, according to trade journal Variety.

She is survived by her daughter Maggie, the daughter she had with her first husband, American novelist Thomas McGuane. It is her sterling and witty portrayal of Lois Lane that captured the hearts of many and set as a challenge to future actresses who aspire to play the role.

Reeve's family and "Star Wars" star Mark Hamill led the celebrity tributes on social media. "Superman footage - The casting of Lois Lane @YouTube". You will be missed. "Your legacy will live on forever".
