Hollywood actress Margot Kidder, who portrayed the iconic character of Lois Lane in the 1978 film Superman, passed away at the age of 69-years. The star was found dead on Sunday at her residence in Montana. Her manager, Camilla Fluxman Pines confirmed the news and said that she died peacefully in her sleep.
Margot, who started her career at the early age of 20 worked in more than 70 films and television shows. She won an Emmy Award for her role in The Haunting Hour. She dated then-prime minister Pierre Trudeau in the 1980s, calling him the “love of my life, my true love” in her radio interview last week.
Many celebs from the fraternity poured tribute to the actress on Social Media
RIP Margot Kidder, the perfect Lois Lane. Being Superman is less cool than landing a sit-down interview with Superman.

Sad to hear of the passing of #MargotKidder. Got to hang out with her a bit when directing Robson Arms, a special talent/Cdn legend. Rip

Most people remember her as Lois Lane, but the essence of Margot Kidder to me is her salty, mischievous sorority sister in BLACK CHRISTMAS. She brought a little danger with her. pic.twitter.com/Stwur7OETm

RIP Margot Kidder. One of my favorite movies of hers is the original Black Christmas. It introduced some elements that are now genre tropes and she’s fantastic in it.
