Margot Kidder

Margaret Ruth "Margot" Kidder (born October 17, 1948) is a Canadian-born American actress. She has appeared in a wide range of films during the 1970s and 1980s such as Sisters, Black Christmas, The Great Waldo Pepper, The Amityville Horror and Heartaches. She is best known for her role as Lois Lane in four Superman movies opposite Christopher Reeve, beginning with Superman: The Movie in 1978. Kidder, one of five children, was born in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada, the daughter of Jocelyn Mary "Jill" (née Wilson), a history teacher, and Kendall Kidder, an explosives expert and mining engineer. Her mother was from British Columbia and her father was from New Mexico in the United States. She was born in Yellowknife because of her father's job, which required the family to live in remote locations. She has a sister, Annie, and three brothers, John, Michael and Peter. Kidder's niece, Janet Kidder, is also an actress. A short residential street near Yellowknife's Old Town is named Lois Lane in her honor. In the late 1960s, Kidder was based in Toronto.
