I was happily chatting with a friend last night when we noticed a link someone had shared on Facebook: Lois Lane actress Margot Kidder dies aged 69.
I was shocked. You hear of celebrities passing away every day and you just go on to the next headline. But news of Kidder’s death was like hearing the death of a family member. Margot Kidder was part of my childhood. She was Lois Lane in the same was as Christopher Reeve was Superman. All other actresses who played Lois after her were just pale imitators.
According to the report, Kidder died on Sunday, 13 May in Livingston, Montana but details of her cause of death have not been released. May she rest in peace.
