Margot Kidder died

Margor Kidder, the unforgettable Lois Lane who accompanied Christopher Reeve in ‘Superman’, has died at 69 years of age. The actress had been fighting against a series of mental health problems for years, but for the moment it has not transcended what was the reason for her death.

Kidder rose to fame in 1978 by giving life to the legendary reporter of the Daily Planet in ‘Superman’, but his career had begun ten years earlier with an appearance on the television ‘Wojeck’. His first steps were focused on the small screen, co-starring ‘Nichols’ with James Garner between 1971 and 1972, but it was not long after when the lovers of the seventh art began to notice her thanks to her participation in ‘Hermanas’ (‘Sisters’), one of Brian De Palma’s first films.

Shortly after it was seen in ‘Black Christmas’ (‘Black Christmas’), one of the first and most interesting slashers, but it was her Lois Lane that catapulted her to the front line of Hollywood. In 1979 he returned to horror film with ‘Terror en Amityville’ (‘The Amityville Horror’). In addition to the sequels of the adventures of the man of steel also participated in works like ‘Heartaches’ or ‘The perfect woman’ (‘Miss Right’), but producers began to call less often at his door.

That did not stop Kidder from working, but increasingly participating in television productions such as the telefilm ‘The body of crime’ (‘Body of Evidence’) or the series ‘Shell Game’. A car accident in 1990 left her in a wheelchair for two years and in 1996 a computer virus erased the autobiography in which she had been working for some time, discovering several manic-depressive episodes shortly afterwards, although that did not stop her from working until almost the date of his death.
