Superman Star Margot Kidder Dies At Age 69
Actress Margot Kidder, famed for her role as Lois Lane in 1978’s Superman, passed away Sunday in Livingston, Montana. She was 69.
The cause of Kidder’s death, first listed on the website of Franzen-Davis Funeral Home, is unknown.
Born in 1948 Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada, Kidder began her acting career in the late 1960s, appearing in a handful of low-budget film and television productions before her first starring role, opposite Gene Wilder, in the 1970 comedy Quackser Fortune Has a Cousin in the Bronx.
That was followed by roles in Brian De Palma’s 1973 thriller Sisters, the 1947 slasher film Black Christmas and the 1974 drama The Great Waldo Pepper before Kidder soared to icon status as Lois Lane in Richard Donner’s 1978 superhero classic Superman.
