  • Margot Kidder's Death Ruled Suicidal Overdose

When actress Margot Kidder passed back in May, her manager, Camilla Fluxman Pines, said she died peacefully in her sleep.

In a statement provided to The Associated Press Wednesday, Coroner Richard Wood said Kidder's death was "a result of a self-inflicted drug and alcohol overdose".

The daughter of late Superman star Margot Kidder has urged people experiencing mental health difficulties to seek help after a coroner's office in the USA released its ruling on her mother's death. The coroner didn't reveal precisely what drugs she had taken.

Hollywood has been rocked by suicides this year, with Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain also taking their own lives. While living in Montana, she was also an activist for progressive causes and animal rights.

She added, referring to the high suicide rate in Montana, "It's a very unique sort of grief and pain".

Born Margaret Ruth Kidder on October 17, 1948 in Canada's Northwest Territories, she grew up in a small town without a movie theatre.

The American Cable Association (ACA), which represents small- and medium-sized cable companies, also cheered Tribune's decision. On Thursday, Kern said that any further delays would hurt his company - so the Tribune board made a decision to spike the deal.

The actress found fame starring alongside Christopher Reeve in the Superman films of the 1970s and 1980s.

The actress had publicly struggled with mental-health issues. Her film "Robber's Roost" was in pre-production, and the final film she worked on was 2017's "The Neighborhood". Off-screen she was one of the kindest, sweetest, most caring woman I've ever known.

She suffered a breakdown in the 1990s and disappeared for four days in a highly publicised episode and was later diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

The calls include responses by ambulances five times in seven months, including at the time of her death.
