‘Superman’ Actress Margot Kidder’s Cause of Death Released

"Superman" actress Margot Kidder died from an intentional drug and alcohol overdose. according to the Coroner's Office.

The death of Margot Kidder, an actor best known for her role in Superman, has been ruled a suicide. The coroner didn't reveal precisely what drugs she had taken.

Her daughter Maggie McGuane said on Wednesday that it was a "big relief" to have the truth out.

It's noted that Margot Kidder struggled with mental illness throughout much of her life, which was made worse in a vehicle accident in 1990 that left her in debt and wheelchair bound for near two years.

She was found dead at her home in Livingston, Montana, on May 13.

Initial reports of Kidder's death in May said that she died in her sleep of natural causes, as The Inquisitr reported.

He also avoided answering a question about Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Don Huffines, R-Dallas, met with Russian officials in Moscow on Monday, joining U.S.

She spoke openly about how she had wandered around Los Angeles for days during that episode, and she said in 2008 that she did not like the words "mental illness".

McGuane went on to tell the AP that Montana has "one of the highest suicide rates in the nation" and urges those with mental illness to seek help.

Kidder was working until just prior to her death.

McGuane says she believes it's important to be open and honest about the suicide so there's no cloud of shame.

Though she worked steadily as an actress over a remarkable 40-year Hollywood career, one role has defined Kidder ever since 1978, when she portrayed "Lois Lane" in the iconic 1978 Richard Donner-directed blockbuster Superman, still considered one of the greatest comic-book movie adaptations ever made.

Kidder struggled with mental illness for a big chunk of her life, with events getting worse following a vehicle accident in 1990 that left her in debt and led her to using a wheelchair.
