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

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

In a joint statement, Kidder's family and the Park County Coroner's Office said they are urging "those suffering from mental illnesses, addiction and/or suicidal thoughts to seek appropriate counselling and treatment".

Speaking to the Associated Press on Wednesday, Kidder's daughter, Maggie McGuane, said that she knew her mother had taken her own life when she was brought to Kidder's home. She told the AP she believes it's important to be open and honest about Kidder's suicide so neither her nor her family faces a cloud of shame as a result.

The actress who was bipolar told People magazine in 1996 about her mental health problem and revealed that she had taken an overdose at 14 and badly from suffered mood swings. Her film "Robber's Roost" was in pre-production, and the final film she worked on was 2017's "The Neighborhood".

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

"It's a very unique sort of grief and pain".

Kidder, a native of Yellowknife, was also a political activist who was arrested in 2011 in a Washington, D.C., protest over the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. Now she feels that the news being out is a big relief to her, The Chicago Sun Times reported.

Both Kidder and co-star Christopher Reeve, who played Superman, were relative unknowns when they got their leading parts, and neither saw many major roles afterwards. A friend discovered Kidder's body at her home on May 13th.

"In her last months, she was herself - same kind of love, same kind of energy", Kesich said. I want what I know about her to be out there because it was glorious.

If you're anxious someone you know may be at risk of suicide, you should talk to them about it, says the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention.
