Donald Sutherland

Legendary Canadian actor Donald Sutherland has passed away at the age of 88.

In a post on X, actor Kiefer Sutherland wrote a touching tribute to his late father, announcing the news.

“I personally think one of the most important actors in the history of film. Never daunted by a role, good, bad or ugly. He loved what he did and did what he loved, and one can never ask for more than that. A life well lived,” read the post on X.

He was born in New Brunswick before moving to Nova Scotia in his teenage years, but left the Maritimes for higher education — first at the University of Toronto and later in England — where he pursued his passion for acting.
