Due to her bipolar disorder she suffered a highly publicized mental breakdown in 1996. She received professional psychiatric care and, remarkably, resumed her career in 1997. Since then she has mostly been seen in guest roles in series such as Boston Common, Touched by an Angel, Made in Canada, The Outer Limits, Robson Arms, and, in a nod to her most famous role as Lois Lane, Smallville. She has also turned to the stage, with appearances in the popular Vagina Monologues and Love, Loss and What I Wore, written by Nora and Delia Ephron. Always politically outspoken, in 2005 Margot Kidder became an American citizen so that, in her own words, she could legitimately protest American adventures abroad without fear of deportation.
