Margot Kidder died Sunday at 69 at her home in Montana

Margot Kidder who starred as Lois Lane in 'Superman' movies dead at 69

The New York Times reports the sad news, which arrived not through her family but the Franzen-Davis Funeral Home and Crematory of Livingston, Montana, and at this time, a cause of death is not known. In 2006, the actress spoke out about her mental health and mental health awareness, giving thanks to an unknown homeless man named Charlie for saving her life. She had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder eight years before police escorted her to Olive View Medical Center in Los Angeles. The death is now under investigation. Kidder portrayed Lois Lane in the film which also starred Christopher Reeve as Superman. She also acted in theatrical productions, most notably appearing on Broadway in a 2002 production of The Vagina Monologues.

The year after the original "Superman" was released, she starred in another box-office smash, "The Amityville Horror", in which she and James Brolin played a couple doing battle with a possessed house. Kidder brought a spunk to the role which made her both the ideal investigative reporter and the flawless foil to the always composed Superman. While Kidder will undoubtedly be remembered as that fearless reporter, she's leaving another legacy, too: her advocacy for mental health awareness. Her first marriage was to Thomas McGuane in 1975.

Mark Hamill stated on his Twitter feed "On-screen she [Kidder] was magic". "Off-screen she was one of the kindest, sweetest, most caring woman I've ever known".

Kidder was born in Yellowknife, Canada, and graduated from a Toronto boarding school before pursuing acting. Something about her that feels whole and true. However, Kidder had not been taking her medication prescribed to her.

Kidder's career began in the 60s with an appearance on the short-lived television drama Wojeck and continued into the present day, most recently with an appearance in the 2017 film, The Neighborhood. She later played twin sisters inBrian De Palma's thriller Sisters, before breaking out in director Richard Donner's live-action superhero film playing Lois Lane opposite actor Christopher Reeve's iconic portrayal of Superman and his mild-mannered alter ego, Clark Kent. Beyond that, though, she mostly stayed out of the headlines notwithstanding her political activism and the fact that she was, for a time, linked to a romance with former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.
