Actress Margot Kidder, Who Played Lois Lane, Dies At 69

Friends are recalling the life of Margot Kidder, who died Sunday at age 69 in her home in Livingston. She protected me on the set - I was just a kid at the time.

However, it was her 1978 role as Lois Lane in Superman alongside Christopher Reeve that saw Kidder reach new levels of fame, with the actress reprising the role in the sequels Superman II, Superman III, and Superman IV: The Quest For Peace.

After Kidder recovered from that incident, she became an advocate for mental health awareness.

And in 2015 Kidder won an Emmy award for Outstanding Performer in Children's Programming for her performance in RL Stine's The Haunting Hour. "These are hard words to write, so simply - you will be so very missed, my dear Margot". She was first diagnosed with the condition by an L.A. psychiatrist eight years prior, but she refused to take the recommended prescription of lithium, the recommended treatment. For fans of Yuletide terror, she memorably played the "bad girl" Barb in Black Christmas (1974). When police found her in Glendale, Calif., she was hiding in the bushes behind a house.

Margot Kidder was a prominent political activist, campaigning against the Gulf War, energy fracking and in support of Democrat Bernie Sanders in the 2016 US presidential election. She continued acting right up to this year, appearing in small roles on television and in film. At a time when the subject was still strictly taboo, she was fearless in talking about her own experiences in order to help others facing the same battle. A rep tells ABC that she died "peacefully in her sleep". She is survived by a daughter who was born in 1976 during her first marriage to Thomas McGuane, as well as two grandchildren.

In view of her 97,000 Twitter followers, she penned: "It is a privilege to have shared the same role of Lois Lane with this wonderful actress".

The star also dated former Canadian prime minister Pierre Trudeau, directors Brian De Palma, writer/director Tom Mankiewicz and Steven Spielberg, as well as stand-up comedian Richard Pryor.
