Superman Star Margot Kidder Dies at 69

Superman Star Margot Kidder Dies at 69

The film star and activist, best known for playing reporter Lois Lane in the "Superman" movies of the 1970s and 1980s, has died at age 69.

Speaking of funeral arrangements, they are still pending, according to Franzen-Davis Funeral Home and Crematory in Livingston, Montana.

Kidder had her own struggles for a time, though she seemed to overcome them.

However, her carer suffered a decline in the '90s, and Kidder notably suffered through some publicised mental health issues.

She was unable to work for two years after serious auto crash in 1990. "We will miss you Margie!" She was first diagnosed with the condition by an L.A. psychiatrist eight years prior, but she refused to take the recommended prescription of lithium, the recommended treatment.

The star's career began in the 1960s, where she appeared in low-budget Canadian films and other television series.

"It is a privilege to have shared the same role of Lois Lane with this wonderful actress", Hatcher wrote. Her last film, The Neighborhood, came out this year. Kidder portrayed Lois Lane and McClure played Jimmy Olsen in the film which also starred Christopher Reeve as Superman.

The Memphis Grizzlies (19.9 percent chance), Dallas Mavericks (13.8) and Atlanta Hawks (13.7) are also right in the mix. Either scenario could have a significant impact on LeBron James' future with the franchise that drafted him.

Kidder also had a small part in 1975's The Great Waldo Pepper with Robert Redford, and starred as conjoined twins in Brian De Palma's 1973 Sisters, and as the mother of a terrorised family opposite James Brolin in 1979's The Amityville Horror.

After a brief stint as a stay-at-home-mom to daughter Maggie, she decided again to go back to making movies. She was set to appear at Motor City Comic Con in Novi, Michigan, this coming weekend alongside some "Superman" cast mates for a panel discussion about the film's legacy.

She commented: "So saddened by the news that dear #MargotKidder has died peacefully in her sleep yesterday".

Hollywood soon beckoned and a move to Los Angeles led to roles on TV shows including "McQueen", "Mod Squad" and "Nichols".

Mark Hamill stated on his Twitter feed "On-screen she [Kidder] was magic".

Kidder dated former prime minister Pierre Trudeau, father of Justin Trudeau.
