[India], May 15 (ANI): Hollywood lost a notable actor earlier in the week and people are mourning the loss.

Film and television actor Margot Kidder, best known as 'Lois Lane' for essaying the role in 1978's 'Superman', died at the age of 69 on Sunday.

A number of celebrities took to Twitter to pay homage to the late actress.

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 perfect moment for the perfect actor. Superman footage - The casting of Lois Lane @YouTube".

The official handle of DC Comics tweeted, "Thank you for being the Lois Lane so many of us grew up with. RIP, Margot Kidder."

'A Fistful of Fingers' director Edgar Wright posted, "Sad to hear of the passing of Margot Kidder. A spark of vivacious life in all of her films. I loved her in cult horrors 'Sisters' and 'Black Christmas'. And of course she remains the best Lois Lane in the magical 'Superman' & 'Superman II'. RIP to a unique screen presence."

Chief Strategist for Barack Obama's presidential campaigns, David Axelrod, wrote, "Margot Kidder should be remembered as much for courageously, candidly discussing her battles with mental illness as for any screen role. There are no Supermen- or women. It is not a character deficiency to acknowledge such struggles and get the help and treatment you need! RIP".

American actor, Clark Gregg, wrote, "#MargotKidder was incredible in the Superman movies. The Lois Lane she created had so much strength, humor and vulnerability that she became as much a part of what made the movie work as the wonderful Chris Reeve, Gene Hackman and others. #ripmargotkidder."

American actress Christy Carlson Romano wrote, "So sad to hear about the death of icon #MargotKidder we spoke at a comic con when I was a couple months pregnant about motherhood. She was a lovely and fierce gal. #RIP."
