"She'd asked her closest friends - if they stopped by her place and found her dead - to tell no one, place her naked body in a bedsheet, drag it up Canyon Mountain, and leave her for her other friends, the wolves".

The cause of her death is unknown. Kidder's manager Camilla Fluxman Pines confirmed Monday that the star passed away peacefully in her sleep. For fans of Yuletide terror, she memorably played the "bad girl" Barb in Black Christmas (1974).

Actress Margot Kidder died at the age of 69.

Those in the Okanagan, who were around at the time of the 2011 federal election, may have bumped into her. Her Lois was spunky, feisty, and all the other adjectives associated with female leads in that era, but she additionally was more defiantly her own person than numerous love interests who appeared in male-led superhero movies in the ensuing decades.

The magic was provided by actors who inhabited the starring roles in the film. She also starred in the three sequels that followed.

Kidder played Lois Lane is four Superman movies opposite the late Christopher Reeve, who died in 2004.

And in 2015 Kidder won an Emmy award for Outstanding Performer in Children's Programming for her performance in RL Stine's The Haunting Hour. You barely see her in Superman 3 - Lois Lane gets a bikini and goes on vacation in that movie because Margie was so upset about what happened to Richard.

The actress returned for a cameo appearance in 1983's Superman III, but was reinstated to the main cast for Reeve's last outing as the Man of Steel in Superman IV: The Quest for Peace. But she has also starred opposite Robert Redford, Peter Fonda, and other well-known actors.

Then came her highly-publicized battle with mental illness, which landed her on the cover of unsympathetic tabloid magazines. She was later diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Kidder recalled her childhood in northern Canada, saying, "We didn't have movies in this little mining town".

In 1976 she took time off to welcome her daughter, Maggie - now 41-years-old - her first husband, American novelist Thomas McGuane.
