Margot Kidder dead Superman star playing Lois Lane

Margot Kidder, famous for playing Lois Lane in "Superman", has died.

The actress was rocked by struggles with bipolar disorder in the 1990s and had a breakdown in 1996, which led to a brief stint with homelessness.

Kidder had been married and divorced three times.

Kidder suffered injuries to her neck in a 1990 vehicle accident on the set of a TV show that never made it to air.
