Canadian actor Donald Sutherland, known for his diverse roles and long career, has died at the age of 88.

His son Kiefer Sutherland announced the news online, and he described his father as one of the most important actors in film history. Donald Sutherland’s career spanned several decades, from early work in MASH to the Hunger Games series. Despite his prolific career, he was never nominated for an Oscar, though he received an honorary Academy Award in 2017. Sutherland was admired for his versatility, and ability to perform in comedies, dramas, and thrillers. He also had a significant impact on younger audiences through his role in The Hunger Games.

Notably, Sutherland was politically active, and he vocally opposed the Vietnam War alongside Jane Fonda. His fans have been highlighting his extensive influence and legacy.

Difficult words: prolific (producing much work), versatility (the quality of being able to change easily or to be used for different purposes), legacy (a long-lasting impact on a person’s life or particular events, actions, etc.).
