Iconic Lois Lane actress, Margot Kidder, has passed away at age 69

It's with a heavy heart that we bring you the news of Margot Kidder's passing. The iconic actress famously known for her role as Lois Lane in Richard Donner's SUPERMAN, died this past Sunday in her Montana home, according to the spokesperson at Franzen-Davis Funeral Home in Livingston, MT. The cause of her death remains unknown at this time.

Aside from starring opposite Christopher Reeve in SUPERMAN, and three of its sequels, Kidder remained as a valuable player in the acting community right up until 2018, while appearing in a series of TV shows, movies, and stage productions, including a two-year stint acting in THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES on Broadway.

Up until the time of her passing, Kidder was known to be battling bipolar disorder for several years. After her quality of life took a dive in 1996, when she was known to have become homeless, Kidder then rebounded as an advocate for mental health awareness. During the initiative, Kidder was lifted up by her peers, and went on to become an ambassador for change and tolerance among others afflicted with debilitating mental health.

Margot has survived by her daughter, Maggie McGuane, and countless fans who've enjoyed her work throughout the years. We here at JoBlo would like to extend our warmest condolences to Kidder's friends and family, and wish her safe passage as she travels up, up, and away to the Great Beyond. Rest well, Ms. Kidder, you will always have a place among the stars.
