She was especially popular playing the role opposite Christopher Reeve in "Superman" in 1978, "Superman II - Alone Against All" in 1980, "Superman III - The Steel Lightning" in 1983 and "Superman IV - The World on the Edge" in 1987.

DC Comics, creators of Superman, appreciated her for the role, that so many people came to identify her with, in the 70s and 80s.

It includes the part in the "Superman" spinoff TV series titled "Smallville" as well as a guest-starring role in the lesbian drama "The L Word".
