The character is played by Noel Neill. Noel is the first live-action actress to portray Lois Lane. She played Lois alongside Kirk Alyn’s Superman in the 1948 “Superman” serial and the “Atom Man vs Superman” 1950 serial. Noel also returned as Lois Lane for seasons two through six of “The Adventures of Superman” TV series starring George Reeves as Superman/Clark Kent when Phyllis Coates left the show. It should also be noted that Noel made an appearance in “Superman: The Movie” as Lois Lane’s mother (playing that same role in a 1988 CBS television special). Noel also appeared in an episode of the “Superboy” TV series. Noel’s involvement in “Superman Returns” makes her the longest serving member of the Superman family, with her Superman career spanning 58 years!
