Canadian-born actress woman of steel

Margot Kidder’s sister says the Yellowknife-born actress shared a courageous spirit with Lois Lane, the tough-as-nails journalist she played on screen in the “Superman” films.

Kidder, best known for her role opposite Christopher Reeve in the films, has died at age 69 at her home in Montana.

Annie Kidder says her sister was an activist all her life, and much like Lane, wasn’t afraid to speak out for what she thought was right.

Margot Kidder was also a mental-health advocate, drawing from her own experience with bipolar disorder, which she spoke about openly at time when it was highly stigmatized.

She won a daytime Emmy in 2015 for her performance in a children’s or pre-school series for “R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour.”

She also starred in films including “Black Christmas” and “The Amityville Horror” and TV series including “Robson Arms.”
