Lois Lane Actress Margot Kidder Has Passed Away At Age 69

Lois Lane Actress Margot Kidder Has Passed Away At Age 69

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. Her manager confirmed that she was at home at the time of her death and passed away in her sleep.

Margot Kidder, who starred as Lois Lane opposite Christopher Reeve in the "Superman" film franchise of the late 1970s and early 1980s, has died.

The Canadian-born Kidder also appeared in 1978's "The Amityville Horror".

Actor Mark Hamill said Kidder's legacy would "live forever".

As well as being an active mental health campaigner, Kidder was also a vocal opponent of the divisive Keystone XL oil pipeline and was arrested in 2011 as she protested against its development outside the White House.

Another significant tribute came from Superman director Richard Donner, who described Kidder as "the only one true Lois Lane". The Lois Lane she created had so much strength, humor and vulnerability that she became as much a part of what made the movie work as the wonderful Chris Reeve, Gene Hackman and others.

Severe storms are possible late today and tonight
Winds become easterly over the course of the day, as well as a gradual clearing of the skies from north to south. This weekend won't be quite as hot, and we do expect some rain in the area on both Saturday and Sunday .

"On-screen she was magic". Off-screen she was one of the kindest, sweetest, most caring woman I've ever known.

We here at CinemaBlend express our condolences to Margot Kidder's family and friends.

Kidder had a debilitating vehicle accident in 1990 that left her badly in debt, confined her to a wheelchair for most of two years and worsened the mental illness she had struggled with for much of her life. She later used her public profile to raise awareness about the condition and became an advocate for alternative medicine.

She won a Daytime Emmy Award in 2015 for her role on the children's TV show "R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour".

"I don't act much anymore unless I'm broke, and then I'll take a job", she told the Detroit radio station with a laugh. A troubled life, which she overcame through grace. 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.
