Susannah York – 1939 – 2011…

Fans all over the world recently said a fond farewell to another one of its national treasures. You can read all about Ms. York’s incredible life and career here but to many she will always be remembered as Lara – Wife of Jor-El and Mother of Kal-El in Superman: The Movie, Superman II and Superman IV: the Quest For Peace.

With her role unexpectedly expanded thanks to Marlon Brando’s refusal to appear, her reassuring and sensitive appearance coaching her son in matters of the heart was one of the highlights of Superman II.
