Margot Kidder, best known for her role as Lois Lane in Superman, has died aged 69. A funeral home in Livingston, Montana, where the actress lived, said Kidder died at her home on Sunday.

Kidder began her career in the 1960s appearing in low-budget Canadian films and television series, before landing a lead role in Quackser Fortune Has a Cousin in the Bronx (1970). She then appeared in Brian De Palma’s cult thriller Sisters (1973), the slasher film Black Christmas (1974), The Great Waldo Pepper (1975), opposite Robert Redford, and as Kathy Lutz in the horror film The Amityville Horror (1979).

After taking a break from acting after the birth of her daughter in 1976, Kidder sought to return to making films in the late 1970s. After doing a reading of Lois Lane for the 1978 superhero film Superman: The Movie, Kidder was flown to England by Richard Donner for screen-tests. Donner ultimately cast Kidder in the role, which would become her most iconic. Filming took over a year, and the film was released during Christmas 1978, to major commercial success. Kidder won a Saturn Award for best actress for her performance in the film.

The Canadian-born actress acquired American citizenship in 2005, and became a political and women’s rights activist alongside her acting.
