Lois Lane Actresses Pay Tribute To Margot Kidder

Superman Star Margot Kidder Dies at 69 Hollywood mourns 'Lois Lane' Margot Kidder

Margot Kidder, who catapulted to Hollywood fame in the late '70s as Lois Lane in the Superman movies, has died, according to the Montana funeral home handling her arrangements.

In addition to her iconic role in Superman, Kidder is also known for starring in films like Sisters, Black Christmas, The Amityville Horror and The Great Waldo Pepper. Kidder rose to stardom playing intrepid reporter Lois Lane in the Superman films of the 1970s and 80s, alongside Christopher Reeve.

Famous for her smoky voice and for portraying smart, indomitable characters, Kidder also struggled with addiction and bipolar disorder for much of her life.

In 2016, Kidder told entertainment website Hey U Guys that her chemistry with Reeve was authentic "because we came from similar backgrounds and he looked like one of my brothers".

Scientists Have Transferred A Memory From One Snail To Another
It was "as though we had transferred the memory ", study co-author and UCLA professor David Glanzman said, the BBC reported . When the RNA was inserted into snails that had not undergone this process, they behaved just as if they had been sensitised.

The police revealed that they were called to the deceased actress's home when she was found dead.

Despite that setback Kidder continued to act on both the silver and small screens, and occasionally on stage.

While Margot Kidder died on Sunday night, the original Superman, Christopher Reeves breathed his last in 2004, and with the death of duo, it's indeed an end of an era. She was arrested at the White House in 2011 during a protest against the construction of an oil pipeline from Alberta to Texas. She won an Emmy Award for TV series "The Haunting Hour". She only had a child with her first husband, novelist Thomas McGuane. Her third marriage was to the French director Philippe de Broca, from 1983-84. Kidder has two grandchildren. Off-screen she was one of the kindest, sweetest, most caring woman I've ever known. "Your legacy will live on forever".

"It was exciting, but for a while being typecast as Lois made my vanity and narcissism scream", Kidder stated in the interview.
