Superman-liefje Margot Kidder overleden
Superman-actrice Margot Kidder is op 69-jarige leeftijd bij haar thuis overleden. Kidder is vooral bekend van haar rol als Lois Lane in Richard Donners Superman met Christopher Reeves. Ze speelde het personage ook in de sequels Superman II, Superman III en Superman IV: The Quest for Peace.
Haar doorbraakrol was in Quackser Fortune Has a Cousin in the Bronx met Gene Wilder. Ze werkte ook samen met regisseur Brian De Palma voor Sisters, met acteur Robert Redford voor The Great Waldo Pepper en was te zien in de slasher-film Black Christmas en de eerste filmbewerking van The Amityville Horror. In de jaren tachtig verdween Kidder grotendeels uit de aandacht.
Reacties uit de film- en stripwereld lieten niet lang op zich wachten:

Sad to hear of the passing of Margot Kidder. A spark of vivacious life in all of her films. I loved her in cult horrors 'Sisters' and 'Black Christmas'. And of course she remains the best Lois Lane in the magical 'Superman' & 'Superman II'. RIP to a unique screen presence. pic.twitter.com/bQEVv7PSa3

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.

I had the privilage of sitting next to
Lois Lane Margot Kidder at a Comicon a few years back, I was awed by her charisma and beauty. Many fans waited by me until she arrived & she wowed everyone with her dignity and presence! Love to her family and know she touched me as well! DH

Margot Kidder, during high ride of 70s films – the one you just fell for at one time or another. Smart, great laugh, great beauty. She had the perfect beach shack where every gathering might be the time of your life. She was regal,soulful, yet deeply unassuming. God rest her.
