New York: Margot Kidder, the actress who rose to fame as Lois Lane in the “Superman” movies, died on Sunday at her home in Livingston, Mont. She was 69.
Her death was announced by Franzen-Davis Funeral Home and Crematory, which did not specify the cause.
Ms. Kidder was one of the busier movie actress of the 1970s and ’80s, appearing in films with Robert Redford and Richard Pryor as well as opposite Christopher Reeve in all four films in the original “Superman” franchise. Her career came to a temporary halt in 1996 when she suffered a highly publicized mental breakdown. But she had continued to act on television, in film and occasionally onstage.
