“Superman” actress Margot Kidder, born in Yellowknife, N.W.T., has died.
An official with a funeral home in Montana confirmed her death and said she died at her home on Sunday.
The cause of death is still not known.
Best known for playing Lois Lane opposite Christopher Reeve in the “Superman” films of the 1970s and 1980s, she went on to become an advocate for mental health issues after speaking out about living with bipolar disorder.
She also became a political activist in recent years and was among a group of environmentalists to be arrested outside the White House in 2011 during a protest against TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline.
She is survived by one daughter.
Margo Kidder was 69.
