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.”

Sutherland’s agency, CAA, said he died in Miami “after a long illness”.

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

He is survived by his wife Francine Racette, sons Roeg, Rossif, Angus, and Kiefer, daughter Rachel, and four grandchildren.

“A private celebration of his life will be held by the family,” CAA said.
