    Margot Kidder, ‘Superman’ Actress, Dies at 69 {headline}

    Margot Kidder, the actress best known for playing Lois Lane
    opposite Christopher Reeve in the original “Superman” films, has died.
    She was 69.

    The actress died in her sleep at her home on Sunday in Livingston,
    Mont., her publicist Camilla Fluxman Pines confirmed to Variety.

    Born Oct. 17 in Canada, Kidder got her start in low-budget Canadian
    films and TV shows before landing a role in 1970’s “Quackser Fortune Has
    a Cousin in the Bronx” opposite Gene Wilder. She later appeared in
    1973’s “Sisters,” “The Great Waldo Pepper” with Robert Redford, and 1979’s “The Amityville Horror.”

    She rose to prominence as Lois Lane, the award-winning Daily
    Planet journalist and Clark Kent’s love interest in all four
    “Superman” films from 1978 to 1987.

    Kidder, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, suffered some
    career setbacks after a public nervous breakdown in 1996. She
    continued acting in smaller roles on TV series including
    “Smallville,” “Brothers & Sisters,” and “The L Word” in the 2000s. Kidder also acted on stage, including Broadway’s 2002 production of
    “The Vagina Monologues.”



    I had the pleasure of waiting on her in the bookshop I worked for,
    early in this century, when she was in a touring production of TVM.
    She had to use a "Rascal" type Scooter to get around, but somehow
    still looked great.

    Condolences to her family and friends.
