Actress Margot Kidder’s Death Ruled a Suicide
She succumbed to “a self-inflicted drug and alcohol overdose” in May, a coroner in Montana announced. Best known for playing Lois Lane opposite Christopher Reeve in the Superman films, Kidder, 69, was found dead in her home near Yellowstone National Park, but at the time, her manager said only that the actress died peacefully in her sleep. “It’s a big relief that the truth is out there,” said Kidder’s daughter, Maggie McGuane. The actress, who attempted suicide at age 14, had long suffered from bipolar disorder and advocated for mental health awareness.
