The movie star, Margot Kidder, known as Louise Lane in the Superman series movies, died at the age of 69.
The funeral was on Sunday in her hometown of Livingston, Montana.
Kidder has gained wide cheer after starring with Christopher Reeve in the Superman series in the 1970s and 1980s.
The Canadian-born actress had her green card in 2005 to begin her career in politics as well as her work on women’s rights.
She criticized the Gulf War, oil extraction activity in the United States supporting Democratic Party candidates, and she was arrested after participating in a protest in front of the White House against the Keystone XL pipeline, which remains controversial in the United States so far.
She added to her record of fame by playing roles other than the Superman series, including horror films which were a great success at the time of their presentation “Black Christmas” and “horror Amtifil“.
After settling in Montana, she began to support the For Women Foundation, which has goals that include “supporting women’s participation and empowerment in American democracy through education and working to solve critical problems.”
Margot Kidder suffered mental health problems that led to her disappearance in 1996.
In a press interview with Bebel magazine, Margot described her disappearance as “the tensest period of her life.”
While she was gathering her memories, her computer was exposed to a virus that caused her to lose all her work, she told the magazine, likely to have been orchestrated by her husband and the CIA.
But in the following years, she began talking about her experience with mania and depression more openly aimed at raising awareness of bilateral mental disorders and adopting alternative medicine as her treatment.
Margot’s fans have written on social networking sites condolences for the death of Superman’s series heroine, most notably the page of DC Comics, which publishes Superman’s books, said: “This was Louise Lane, which we grew up with over the years”.
“Our generation has learned how wonderful Louise Lane was,” said Eric Goldman, a writer for the Marvel magazine competition of C Comics.
“It was a great honor for me to play the role Kidder played,” wrote Terry Hatter, who played Louise Lane in the television series “Lewis and Clark – The New Superman Adventure,” which was produced in the 1990s.
As for Dane Cain, the star of the series, he also expressed his condolences for the death of Kidder on his Twitter social networking site.
The English actress, Sarah Douglas, who played the role of the evil superhero Orsa, said that Kidder “was delightful everywhere she was.”
On social networking sites, some restored the movie moments from the original 1978 Superman film, while others praised her courage when she spoke about mental disorders she had suffered in the media.
Cameron Coffey, who plays Superman in the television series Krypton, said in a tweet on the Twitter social networking site: “There were few who were able to embody the legend to appear live on the screen, which Margot Kidder did.
On a personal level, few were honest and brave; Kidder was among them when she spoke of her mental problems. She has always been one of the pioneers and sources of inspiration”.
Kedar married and divorced three times, and she has from these marriages one daughter is Maggie and two grandchildren.
