Superman star Margot Kidder dies

Superman star Margot Kidder dies

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

"The actress and activist passed away on Sun., May 13, 2018 at her home", the funeral home said.

Superman was a superhero blockbuster two decades before comic book movies became the norm at the top of the box office.

U.S. actress Margot Kidder, who played reporter Lois Lane in the "Superman" movies, has died at age 69, a statement from the funeral home handling her arrangements said Monday.

The Canadian-born Kidder also appeared in 1975's The Great Waldo Pepper with Robert Redford and 1978's The Amityville Horror.

Kidder, as ace reporter Lane, was a salty, sexually savvy adult who played off of the boyish, farm-raised charm of Reeve's Clark Kent, though her dogged journalism constantly got her into risky scrapes that required old-fashioned rescues.

"I'm not saying it's all over", Kidder told People magazine after her life derailed in 1996.

Kidder starred in the Superman trilogy released between 1978-1983 as hotshot reporter Lane, who was also the love interest of Clark Kent - played by Christopher Reeve, who died in 2004.

"We quarreled all the time", Kidder said on May 9 in an interview on radio station WWJ in Detroit, where she had been scheduled to appear at Motor City Comic Con later this month. She became a USA citizen in 2005. "We didn't have to create a different reality". "Nothing prepares anyone for that sudden thing of being world famous, it was such a shock", she said.

"On-screen she was magic".

We here at CinemaBlend express our condolences to Margot Kidder's family and friends.

No further details were given and messages left with Kidder's representatives were not returned.

Hollywood soon beckoned and a move to Los Angeles led to roles on TV shows including "McQueen", "Mod Squad" and "Nichols". Off-screen she was one of the kindest, sweetest, most caring woman I've ever known. However, it was unquestionably her time as Lois Lane (she was the third actress to portray the character in live action) that propelled her to worldwide fame, and she obtained the role after taking a break from acting following her daughter's birth in 1976.
