Margot Kidder, who found movie stardom in 'Superman,' dies at 69

The first one Kidder and Reeve in the first Superman film which came out in 1978

Today we learn that Kidder passed away at the age of 69. Reeves died in between the original airings of her episodes. "She left meat out for the wolves so she could watch them come down the mountain and eat from the safety of her home". She was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and spoke out about it in an effort to remove the stigma of the disease. Unfortunately, her career unavoidably slowed after she suffered a mental breakdown in 1996. She became paranoid and disappeared for four days until she was found in a stranger's backyard and taken to Olive View Medical Center by police. Kidder was later placed in psychiatric care. She protected me on the set - I was just a kid at the time. She starred alongside Christopher Reeve, and continued on with the role for the three sequels that followed. She was awarded an Emmy for a part in R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour. The last listed appearance of any kind came in an apparently independent film that was released a year ago.

She didn't let anything stop her from her dreams, beginning a career in acting in 1969, only to leave to go to NY for more training after a director told her she wasn't a very good actress. In 2004, she revisited her Superman legacy by guesting on the show Smallville as Bridgette Crosby. The two had a brief romance on the movie. She then appeared in other movies such as Black Christmas and Heartaches.

Do you have any fond memories of Margot Kidder as Lois Lane, or from any of her other performances? She was as tough as the Lois Lane character she played. Kidder brought a spunk to the role which made her both the flawless investigative reporter and the ideal foil to the always composed Superman.
