  • Margot Kidder dead Superman actress died aged 69

Lois Lane, the archetypal "girl reporter" constantly being rescued from peril by Superman, had been a staple of radio and TV since the 1940s.

In this way, she turned that dark chapter into something positive.

Rather than throw in the towel, Kidder kept fighting and became an outspoken advocate for mental health and a critic of the pharmaceutical industry.

"We are all. a breath away from mental illness, homelessness, all these things we tend to look down on", she told a Toronto convention in 2006.

Margot Kidder at the 1983 Academy Awards. She also starred in films including "Black Christmas" and "The Amityville Horror" and TV series including CTV's "Robson Arms". She stood up for people. She has said that another homeless man tried to rape her and knocked out some of her dental work. She protected me on the set - I was just a kid at the time.

Diagnosed with bipolar disorder, Kidder experienced a widely publicized manic episode in April 1996, during which she disappeared for four days in Los Angeles, only to be discovered in the backyard of a Glendale homeowner.

It is not yet known what Kidder died from. The Daily Mail reported she had been ill; she said she had been "in bed with the flu" when she called into a radio show last week. Kidder was 69-years-old at the time of her death, but no cause was given by the funeral home that confirmed her passing.

The actress passed away in her Montana home.

She also briefly Wednesday French director Philippe de Broca. She also appears alongside Christopher Reeve in one of the most famous scenes in cinema history.

Statford, Ont. -based comic creator Scott Chantler said Kidder's portrayal of Lane transformed the character from a "damsel in distress" awaiting rescue, to a "force of nature" whose brashness made her a crackling counterpart to Superman's nebbish alter-ego, Clark Kent. She attributed orthomolecular medicine, which is an alternative form of medicine, for her well-being. Her first film was the Norman Jewison comedy "Gaily, Gaily" in 1969. Even from a young age, she had ambitions of stardom.

It's hard to know what Kidder might have become in a more meritocratic version of Hollywood - one that would better appreciate her talents, providing her with more roles, more security, and less stress.

Annie Kidder says that while her sister's health hadn't been fantastic, there was no particular issues that she was aware of. She was arrested and removed from the White House in 2011 during a protest against the construction of an oil pipeline from Alberta to Texas. She actively supported Jesse Jackson's 1984 presidential campaign and supported Senator Bernie Sanders' campaign in the 2016 election. Kidder was an activist and challenged the Iraq War.
