Actress Margot Kidder Dead At Age 69

15 May 2018

Kidder, best known for her role opposite Christopher Reeve in the "Superman" films of the 1970s and 1980s, has died at age 69, a Montana funeral home confirmed on Monday.

A funeral home in Livingston, Montana, where the actress lived, said Kidder died at her home on Sunday. Kidder reprised her role in the three Superman sequels that followed. She played that mix of brilliant reporter and tough cookie with a soft spot for the ultimate hero perfectly, and it's why Margot Kidder beat out dozens of other famous actresses who tried out for the role.

Kidder also appeared in Brian De Palma's thriller Sisters (1973); in the slasher film Black Christmas (1974); and the drama The Great Waldo Pepper (1975), opposite Robert Redford.

But for an entire generation, Margot Kidder is the Lois Lane.

Kidder had numerous film's most memorable lines, including "You've got me?!" In 2006, she told an audience at the Industrial Accident Prevention Association, "I've had 10 years now, this week actually, 10 years without a manic or depressive episode, which is for me such a miracle!" It wasn't until she was forced into therapy that she was able to get a handle on her health.

She also became a champion for mental illness after suffering some very public breakdowns in the late 1990s. Whether throwing herself off a building to "prove" Kent's secret, or crying in his office at the realization that her life with Superman would never be easy, she was able to run the gamut of emotions, while always staying true to Lane's indomitable spirit.

The actress, who leaves behind a daughter, was married and divorced thrice in her life. There are very few who have been able to really perfectly gel into the legacy of Lois Lane, and Terri Hatcher is probably a close second, but there is something special about Kidder.

Star Wars actor Mark Hamill was among the first to pay tribute to Kidder.

This was later reported as the rationale she appeared in lower than 5 minutes of Superman III 4 years later. "Off-screen she was one of the kindest, sweetest, most caring woman I've ever known".
