Profile Bio Text
Margaret Ruth Kidder (born October 17, 1948) is a Canadian-American actress, best known for playing Lois Lane in the Superman movies starring Christopher Reeve. Kidder is best known for her role as Lois Lane in the 1978 film Superman: The Movie and its sequels. She publicly disagreed with the decision of producers Alexander Salkind and Ilya Salkind to replace Richard Donner as director of 1980`s Superman II. As a result, Kidder`s role in 1983`s Superman III consisted of less than five minutes of footage. Her role in 1987`s unsuccessful Superman IV: The Quest for Peace was more substantial. In addition to the Superman movies, Kidder has starred in The Amityville Horror, Willie & Phil, Some Kind of Hero with her Superman III co-star Richard Pryor and The Great Waldo Pepper opposite Robert Redford. She has also made uncredited cameo appearances in Maverick and Delirious. In 1970, Kidder co-starred as Zazel Pierce opposite Gene Wilder as Quackser Fortune in Quackser Fortune Has a Cousin in the Bronx.
In 1990, she appeared in introductions for the Discovery Channel`s "Best of the BBC" series of repackaged documentaries, among them Making of a Continent. From 1993 to 1996, she was the voice of the character of Gaia in Captain Planet and the Planeteers. In 1994, Kidder played the bartender at the "Broken Skull" tavern in Under a Killing Moon, an IBM PC adventure game. In 2000, Kidder played Eileen Canboro in Apocalypse III: Tribulation, a Christian film dealing with Christian eschatology and the rapture. Kidder stated afterwards that she did not realize until she was on the set that the movie was serious. In 2001, she played a guest role as the mother of a serial killer in "Pique", an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. In 2004, Kidder briefly returned to the Superman franchise in two episodes of the television program Smallville, as Dr. Bridgette Crosby, an emissary of Dr. Swann (played by her Superman co-star, Christopher Reeve). Also that year, Kidder made an appearance on a Canadian sitcom, Robson Arms, set in an apartment block in Vancouver`s west end. She played a quirky neighbor of the main cast members. She also had a cameo in Rich Hall`s Election Special on BBC Four. In 2006, Kidder played a guest role as Jenny Schecter`s mother Sandy Ziskin on The L Word. In 2007, Kidder started appearing on the television series Brothers and Sisters, playing Emily Craft. Additionally, Kidder played Sally Cima, and was the mother of protagonist Greg Cima, a high school tailback for Kanab High School in Kanab, Utah, in the film Windrunner. Most recently, she took a prominent role as an embattled guidance counselor named Dorothy Fisher in the 2008 gay-themed mystery film On the Other Hand, Death. She has also done extensive stage work, including The Vagina Monologues.
Kidder was involved in a serious car crash in 1990, after which she was unable to work for two years, causing her serious financial problems. Kidder has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which led to a widely publicized manic episode in 1996. Kidder was found in undergrowth by Los Angeles police in a distressed state, and placed in psychiatric care. Kidder became a United States citizen on August 17, 2005, in Butte, Montana; she lives in nearby Livingston. She said the reason for her decision to become an American citizen is to participate in the voting process, to continue her protests against U.S. intervention in Iraq, and at the same time to be free of worries about being deported.

Wiki Bio Text
Margaret Ruth "Margot" Kidder (October 17, 1948 – May 13, 2018) was a Canadian actress and activist. She rose to fame in 1978 for her role as Lois Lane in the Superman film series, opposite Christopher Reeve. Kidder began her career in the 1960s appearing in low-budget Canadian films and television series, before landing a lead role in Quackser Fortune Has a Cousin in the Bronx (1970).
She then appeared playing twins in Brian De Palma's cult thriller Sisters (1973); in the slasher film Black Christmas (1974); and the drama The Great Waldo Pepper (1975), opposite Robert Redford. Her performance as Kathy Lutz in the blockbuster horror film The Amityville Horror (1979) gained her further mainstream exposure.
After a highly publicized manic episode and nervous breakdown in 1996, Kidder's career began to slow. By the 2000s, however, she had maintained steady work in independent films as well as television, with guest-starring roles on Smallville, Brothers & Sisters, and The L Word. In 2015, she won an Emmy Award for her performance on the children's television series R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour. She also acted in theatrical productions, most notably appearing on Broadway in a 2002 production of The Vagina Monologues.
In 2005, Kidder became a naturalized U.S. citizen. In later years, Kidder became an outspoken political, environmental, and anti-war activist. She died on May 13, 2018, at her home in Livingston, Montana.
