Donald Sutherland is a renowned Canadian actor, best known for his roles in ‘The Dirty Dozen’, ‘M A SH’ and ‘Klute’. He was weak as a child but became academically competent as he grew up. Before becoming an actor he qualified as an engineer as well as acquired a degree in drama. As he matured, he chose to take up drama and abandoned engineering. He began his career with several different jobs, including that of a radio DJ, before he became a full-fledged actor. He has worked in over 200 shows and films over the past 60 odd years. He has made a lasting legacy on Hollywood; be it portraying a vicious villain, dashing hero or man with character. He is known for his towering height and macho looks. 6’ 4’’, blond hair, bold blue eyes, slender frame (more often than not supporting a beard) and an offbeat grin with a rich voice gave him the trademark that paved the way to success. Donald has five children, including the famous actor Kiefer Sutherland, from three marriages that all ended in divorce. Rachel, Kiefer’s twin sister also works in the film industry as a post-production supervisor.
