Margot Kidder, The Original Lois Lane, Dies At Age 69

Margot Kidder dead Superman star playing Lois Lane

"She was very, very happy living with her dogs in Montana and being part of a really strong community", said Annie Kidder. For fans of Yuletide terror, she memorably played the "bad girl" Barb in Black Christmas (1974). Directed by Richard Donner, the movies were blockbusters in the 1970s and 1980s. "So sorry for the passing of Margot Kidder the star of four Superman movies who will always be Lois Lane", he wrote.

(File pix) Actress Margot Kidder, appears at the Superman movie reunion at the Warner Bros.museum in Burbank, California, US, May 1, 2001.

Her rise to fame in the role of Lois Lane initially concerned her - particularly due to the likelihood of typecasting in Hollywood - but she grew to appreciate the character's iconic status and her connection to it. Cocky, self-assured, and proud of her chain-smoking habit (and inability to spellcheck), she breathed some screwball humour into the film as well as an air of authentic newsroom brassiness.

She also thrived as an actress after she got better. Kidder got the role of Lois Lane for the 1978 "Superman" movie and also filmed its sequel, "Superman II", simultaneously.

After a highly publicized manic episode and nervous breakdown in 1996, Kidder's career began to slow. And, after watching Kidder, you will believe Lois backs down from no one. It doesn't hurt that my mom's name is Lois, and friends used to say she 'looked like Lois Lane, ' meaning Kidder.

Who among us wouldn't have wanted to take a ride in the sky with hunky Christopher Reeve's "Superman?". Kidder acted as producer and starred as Eliza Doolittle in a 1983 adaptation of Pygmalion with Peter O'Toole for Showtime. Her mother, Margaret, was a teacher, and her father, Kendall, was an explosives expert whose job entailed taking the family to whatever remote place ore had been discovered.

Her last film, "The Neighborhood", was released in 2017, and now has a rating of 7.6 on IMDb.

She officially became a United States citizen in 2005, claiming she did so to participate in the voting process and to continue her protests against US intervention in Iraq without fear of facing deportation. She went on to marry actor John Heard in 1979 only to divorce six days later.

Kidder is survived by her daughter, Maggie McGuane, from her first marriage to American novelist Thomas McGuane.

Writer and indie film director Ted Geoghegan posted on Twitter, saying he knew Margaret well and that she had an unusual request for her body.
