Noel Neill biography:
Her ancestors are from Sandnes in Norway. Same town as the famed Norwegian Hammer film starlet, Julie Ege. In 1957, she appeared briefly with her "Adventures of Superman" (1952) co-star George Reeves in a county fair act in which she sang and he played an upright bass. A trained singer and dancer, she had a night club career in her salad days performing in various nightclubs on Hollywoood's Sunset Strip including Ciro's, the Mocambo and the Trocadero. Arguably the most prolific actor or actress in Superman's live-action legacy, she played Lois Lane in the two Superman serials, replaced Phyllis Coates as Lane in "Adventures of Superman" (1952) during the second season, had a cameo in Superman (1978), guest-starred on "Superboy" (1988) and appears in Superman Returns (2006).
