Donald Sutherland, who appeared in films including The Hunger Games and Kelly’s Heroes, has died.

The Canadian actor, who was 88, won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for his performance in the mini-series Citizen X.

His son, fellow actor Kiefer Sutherland, posted on X: “With a heavy heart, I tell you that my father, Donald Sutherland, has passed away.

“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.”

His “breakthrough performances” were in 1967 movie The Dirty Dozen and MASH, CAA said.
