Superman's Margot Kidder Is Dead At 69

Superman Star Margot Kidder Dies at 69 Hollywood mourns 'Lois Lane' Margot Kidder

The actress died on Sunday in her home in the northern USA state of Montana, according to the Franzen-Davis Funeral Home & Crematory, which did not specify a cause. Since movies in her era mostly depicted women as inferior beings to men, Margot Kidder showed that she was Clark Kent's equal. While many will remember her as the snappy, no non-sense taking reporter in Superman.

"The first scene I do with him (Superman) when we fly off the balcony, we had to do something like 84 takes", she recalled in 2014. Her career crested in the ´70s and ´80s, as she worked with film stars including Robert Redford and Richard Pryor.

Her remaining twenty plus years were more stable.

Margot Kidder, the Canadian actress best known for playing the iconic role of Lois Lane in the "Superman" franchise during the 1970s and 1980s, died in her sleep at the age of 69.

The Superman movies made Margot Kidder a high-flier, but making a superhero movie then without state-of-the-art special effects was down-to-earth tedious. She also returned to her fright-film roots with The Amityville Horror (1979), a major hit. She married three times.

After sleeping on the streets, days later Margot was found and placed in psychiatric care, at which point she later revealed: "Finally, I was able to accept the diagnosis".

When starring in the Superman movies, Margot was considered a pinup and often landed magazine covers, earning her a large fan base.

She reprised the part in sequels in 1980, 1983 and 1987, also.

Kidder had numerous movies' most memorable lines, including "You've got me?!" Reeve, who was paralyzed from the neck down in a horseback riding accident in 1995, died in 2004. She is survived by her daughter Maggie McGuane. Margot Kidder was also a prominent political activist, taking active part in campaigns against energy tracking, the Gulf War, and even rallying for the support of Bernie Sanders during the 2016 United States elections.
