Actress Margot Kidder, best known for playing Lois Lane in the “Superman” films in the 1970s

Kidder shot to fame playing the intrepid reporter Lois Lane in 1987’s “Superman,” opposite
Christopher Reeve, and reprised the role twice more in “Superman II” (1980) and “Superman III”
In the mid 1990s, she suffered a mental health breakdown and in a highly publicized episode
she disappeared for four days. She was later diagnosed with biploar disorder.
Sad to read this news. A truly talented actor, she will be missed and treasured for a long time to come, as she gave us a beautiful gift in the films in which she appeared.
I first took notice of her back in the early 70s when she co-starred in the Brian DePalma film, Sisters. In that film she had 2 roles as the separated halves of conjoined twins.
RIP Lois Lane.
I knew her first from this film
it was written by a classmate's mother and was a film most Canajuns of my generation know. It was about the valley, eh.
