  • Margot Kidder who starred as Lois Lane in 'Superman' movies dead at 69

Margot Kidder, the actress who played Lois Lane in the 1978 Superman film and its three sequels, has died.

Kidder passed away yesterday at her home in Livingston, Montana.

Born in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Kidder began her acting career in the late 1960s and achieved fame in 1978 through her iconic role as Lois Lane in Superman: The Movie. By the 2000s, however, she had maintained steady work in independent films as well as television, with guest-starring roles on Smallville, Brothers & Sisters, and The L Word.

In her personal life, Kidder endured mental health issues, including a manic depression diagnoses and injuries from an on-set auto accident that left her using a wheelchair for two years.

Kidder eventually was found "dirty, frightened and paranoid", hiding in the bushes of a suburban backyard in Glendale, Calif., according to police at the time. In 2006, the actress spoke out about her mental health and mental health awareness, giving thanks to an unknown homeless man named Charlie for saving her life. It's surely what got her the role.

Actress Sarah Douglas, who played villainess Ursa in the first two "Superman" films, paid tribute to her co-star. Widespread admiration for her portrayal was clear on Monday after news broke that Kidder had died over the weekend. She immediately sought treatment for her bipolar disorder and by her own account, in 2016, she never endured another episode. Margot's final role was just a year ago in The Neighbourhood where she played Maggie.

Kidder told Hey U Guys she thought the film would be a flop.

Her career had flagged by the mid-1980s.

Margot was also married three times, to novelist Thomas McGuane (with whom she had a daughter, Maggie), actor John Heard (for six days) and film director Philippe de Broca.
