Margot Kidder, who played Lois Lane in the Superman movie franchise through the late 1970s and 80s, has died at aged 69.
Kidder’s manager Camilla Fluxman Pines said she died in her Montana home on Sunday.
Kidder had many of the movies’ most memorable lines, including “You’ve got me?! Who’s got you?!” when she first encountered the costumed hero as she and a helicopter plunged from the top of a Metropolis building.
Kidder and Reeve were relative unknowns when they got their leading parts in the first of the films in 1978, which also included big names Gene Hackman and Marlon Brando. Kidder and Reeve went on to star in three more “Superman” movies, the fourth and last in 1987.
Kidder also had a small part in 1975?s “The Great Waldo Pepper” with Robert Redford, and starred as conjoined twins in Brian De Palma’s 1973 “Sisters,” and as the mother of a terrorized family opposite James Brolin in 1979?s “The Amityville Horror.”
