Margot Kidder, the miner’s daughter from Yellowknife who went on to play Lois Lane in the Superman movies, has died at 69 at her home in Montana, her sister Annie has confirmed. The comic book movie was the most expensive project to be released at that point, costing $55 million and it was a huge critical and financial success. “She was a fighter”. She’d go on to call the Salkinds “crooks”. It is, in effect, Lois Lane asking Superman to treat her as an equal in their relationship, even if they can’t be equal otherwise. Kidder died in her sleep on Sunday. She was later diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
Kidder was also a strong advocate for mental health, suffering from bipolarism.
“She was courageous about everything”, she said. Delany started off her career as Lane in 1996 in “Superman: The Last Son of Krypton” and most recently voiced the character in 2013’s “Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox”. “There was nothing to be ashamed of”. She became a US citizen in 2005 so she could vote in this country and continue her protest against the USA intervention in Iraq without fears of being departed. A spark of vivacious life in all of her films.
Margot Kidder became an American citizen in 2005, and remained active in political protests as recently as past year, protesting the North Dakota pipeline.
She also starred in “The Amityville Horror” in 1979 and worked steadily in television and on stage. It wasn’t until she was forced into therapy that she was able to get a handle on her health.
Kidder was married and divorced three times and was also famously linked to former prime minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau.
Margot Kidder’s film debut was a 1968 drama set in a Canadian logging community.
“It is a privilege to have shared the same role of Lois Lane with this wonderful actress”, Hatcher wrote. “I just have to accept the fact that this is me, or I ain’t gonna make it”. “She was a source of human strength in a film about superhuman strength”. Kidder flew to Los Angeles to have the computer examined by a data retrieval company, who ultimately was unable to retrieve the files. “That’s my reality and it’s terrific”, Kidder said. Personally, Superman was the first superhero movie I ever saw, and I distinctly remember thinking I’d love to have a girlfriend like Lois one day.
“On-screen she was magic”.
Watching her slowly drop that self-protection over the course of that date with Superman, revealing a woman who wants to believe in the idea of someone uncomplicated and genuinely good, is one of the deeper pleasures of that movie. “We continued to have fun together over the last 40 years”.
“What happened to me-the biggest nervous breakdown in history, bar possibly Vivien Leigh’s-is not so uncommon”, Kidder told The Guardian in a 2005 interview.
“She led the way brilliantly”.
For decades, Kidder had lived in a log cabin near Livingston.
“On-screen she was magic”.
She spent four days wandering from one place in the city to the other, she told People.
