Donald Sutherland, one of Canada’s most versatile and gifted actors, who charmed and enthralled audiences in films such as M*A*S*H, Klute, Ordinary People and The Hunger Games, has died aged 88.
The background: The actor, whose lengthy career spanned from the 1960s into the 2020s, died on Thursday, his son, actor Kiefer Sutherland, said on social media.
The tall actor with a deep voice, piercing blue eyes and mischievous smile managed to switch effortlessly from character roles to romantic leads, opposite the likes of Jane Fonda and Julie Christie.
Sutherland was considered among the best actors to never receive an Academy Award nomination for any of his roles.

The key quote: “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.” — Kiefer Sutherland.

What else to know: Born on 17 July 1935 in Canada’s New Brunswick province, Sutherland performed in school productions before moving to England to improve his acting.
He then made the switch to the United States where he got his big break in the industry with a role in the film The Dirty Dozen.
What happens next: Sutherland is survived by his five children, including Kiefer.
