Ilya Salkind Comments on Susannah York's Recent Passing

The Superman community and family are saddened by the news of the passing of Susannah York, who portrayal Lara-El in Superman: The Movie. Ilya Salkind (Producer, Superman I-III) commented on the news of the passing of Susannah. 

"It is with terrible sorrow to learn of the passing of Susannah York. She was a grand lady of acting and definitely made Lara-El the ultimate mother who understands that the way to happiness for her son is to relinquish his powers for love. As a mother she knows love is more important to the growth of Kal-El at that time. It is this understanding that allowed the audience to accept Superman giving up his powers, which will
make him his own man. I was honored and grateful to be able to work with Susannah." - Ilya Salkind

Our thoughts and prayers are with Susannah York's family and friends at this time.
