Superman's star Margot Kidder passes away at 69

Margot Kidder, the Canadian actress who starred as a salty and cynical Lois Lane opposite Christopher Reeve in the Superman film franchise of the 1970s and 1980s, has died. Kidder was acting up until her death and reportedly has two projects yet to be released. "She was all those things in the same way as (Lane)".

In a post shared with her 5,429 followers, the 65-year-old wrote: "So saddened by the news that dear #MargotKidder has died peacefully in her sleep yesterday. Who's got you?!" when she first encountered the costumed hero as she and a helicopter plunged from the top of a Metropolis building.

"She was courageous about everything", she said. She hit headlines for all the wrong reasons in the mid-1990s when her battle with bipolar disorder went public and she was discovered living homeless. "There was nothing to be ashamed of".

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

"The actress and activist passed away on Sun., May 13, 2018 at her home", the funeral home said. 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. She went on to pick up an Emmy Award for her performance on the children's television series R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour in 2015.

Also known for her political activism, she was among a group of environmentalists to be arrested outside the White House in 2011 during a protest against TransCanada's Keystone XL pipeline. She is survived by her daughter Maggie McGuane. She was such a strong woman. "There was a lot of death in her life lately and she felt the weight of that".

Kidder was married and divorced three times. "Ironically a colleague and I were just getting in touch with her the last few months about doing a documentary of her life and she wanted to do that", Wilder added.

She continued to act in many movies and TV shows, most recently the 2017 film "The Neighborhood". I loved her in cult horrors "Sisters" and "Black Christmas". Kidder told Hey U Guys she thought the film would be a flop.

She became paranoid and disappeared for four days until she was found in a stranger's backyard and taken to Olive View Medical Center by police.
