Actress Margot Kidder, Who Played Lois Lane, Dies At 69

Her death was announced by the Franzen-Davis Funeral Home in Livingston, Mont., where she resided.

Kidder's manager Camilla Fluxman Pines said she died peacefully in her sleep last Sunday.

Superman was a superhero blockbuster two decades before comic book movies became the norm at the top of the box office.

Canadian actress Margot Kidder, who played Lois Lane in the four original "Superman" movies, has died at age 69.

Born Margaret Ruth Kidder on October 17, 1948 in Canada's Northwest Territories, she grew up in a small town without a movie theater.

Kidder had numerous movies' most memorable lines, including "You've got me?!"

"We quarreled all the time", Kidder said on May 9 in an interview on radio station WWJ in Detroit, where she had been scheduled to appear at Motor City Comic Con later this month.

Kidder began acting in the late 1960s, but rose to fame in 1978 for her role as Lois Lane in "Superman: The Movie" opposite Christopher Reeve. With her citizenship, Kidder was an activist and challenged the Iraq War. "We didn't have to create a different reality".

Mark Hammil wrote, "On-screen she was magic". "Nothing prepares anyone for that sudden thing of being world famous, it was such a shock", she said. A manic episode left Kidder disoriented and living rough for a few days in Los Angeles, an experience she went on to discuss publicly as she advocated for mental health issues. Off-screen she was one of the kindest, sweetest, most caring woman I've ever known.

He wrote in a post shared on Twitter with his 8,878 followers: "Margot lived at the foot of Canyon Mountain, right outside of Livingston".

That struggle became public in 1996 when she was found dazed and filthy in a yard not far from the studio where she once filmed parts of Superman. Kidder told Hey U Guys she thought the film would be a flop. At a time when the subject was still strictly taboo, she was fearless in talking about her own experiences in order to help others facing the same battle.
