The Cranberries lead singer Dolores O'Riordan has died in London at the age of 46, her publicist says.

The Irish musician, originally from Limerick, led the band to international success in the 90s with singles including Linger and Zombie.

A statement from her publicist said: "The lead singer with the Irish band The Cranberries was in London for a short recording session.

"No further details are available at this time."

It added: "Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time."

Irish rock band Kodaline were among the first to pay tribute on social media.

I learned a lot of scientific topics from this man.  But my favorite memory of him was just how hilarious or vulnerable he was being on Big Bang Theory.  Rest in peace sir.

In 2007, Erik Viirre, Associate Director of the Clarke Center, was fortunate to share a unique experience with the great Stephen Hawking: taking him into zero gravity. He shares his remembrance of the intellectual giant with Brian Keating here, in honor of Hawking's passing on March 14, 2018.

Margot Kidder died Sunday, May 13, 2018 at her home in Livingston, Montana the age of 69, according to People. The reported cause of death has not been released.

Kidder was born Margaret Ruth Kidder in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada on October 17, 1948. She began acting in 1968 with The Best Damn Fiddler from Calabogie to Kaladar, but rose to fame with roles in 1970's Quackser Fortune Has a Cousin in the Bronx, 1973's Sisters, and 1975's The Great Waldo Pepper.

In 1976, Kidder was cast for what would become her most iconic role - Lois Lane in 1978's Superman: The Movie. Starring opposite Christopher Reeve's Superman, Kidder won a Saturn Award for her role and subsequently reprised it in three sequels.

Kidder is survived by one daughter and two grandchildren.

Awww, what terrible news.

While I loved her in The Amityville Horror, I think her portrayal of Lois Lane really helped define the character's courage, determination, and independence for a generation or two or three (ha ha).  She was always my favorite Lois Lane.  ^__^  My dad is a big fan of Superman (which I think was how I got my first exposure to the superhero genre in general), so he and I used to watch those movies together when I was a kid.

Also found this tidbit on NBC's website:

In 2009, Kidder correctly predicted that she would be remembered most for playing Lois Lane as she reflected on a career that included more than 60 movies and dozens of TV appearances in an interview with the A.V. Club.

"I’ll have that inscribed on my damn grave," she said. "I still get stopped for being Lois Lane, and I’m 60 and have two grandchildren. So it’s kind of weird."

XD Ha ha.
