Margot Kidder Dead at 69

We have some sad news to announce today as Deadline is reporting that Margot Kidder has passed away at her Montana home at 69 years of age. Known to genre fans for such classics as Black Christmas and The Amityville Horror, Kidder

Kidder appeared in over 60 films since her start in the 1968 film The Best Damn Fiddler from Calabogie to Kaladar. She was propelled to new heights when she took the role of Lois Lane in the 1978 film Superman. She would go on to reprise that role three more times in the films Superman II, Superman III and Superman IV: The Quest for Peace.

Kidder’s health problems came to a head in 1996 as she suffered a nervous breakdown caused by a bipolar disorder. The actress went missing for a few days and was eventually found in a homeowner’s backyard in a frenzied and distressed state. She was then admitted in psychiatric care facility.

In 2015 Kidder won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Performer in a Children’s or Pre-School Children’s Series for R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour: The Series.

We here at Horror News Network send our condolences to Kidder’s friends and family.
