Margot Kidder was the original Lois Lane in the ‘Superman’ movies that starred the late Christopher Reeves. An outspoken advocate for many social issues, including mental illness, Margot herself suffered from bipolar disorder. She was only 69 years old.
Margot Kidder should be remembered as much for courageously, candidly discussing her battles with mental illness as for any screen role.
There are no Supermen— or women. It is not a character deficiency to acknowledge such struggles and get the help and treatment you need!
