In a career spanning six decades, the legendary actor had featured in varied roles with his breakthrough performances, including the 1967 film The Dirty Dozen and Robert Altman's M*A*S*H. Throughout his career, the actor starred in such films as Klute, Kelly's Heroes, Don't Look Now, Ordinary People, 1900, The Hunger Games series and Ad Astra, as per The Hollywood Reporter.

For his contributions to cinema, he received an Honorary Award from the Academy in 2017. Sutherland is survived by his wife, Francine Racette; sons Roeg, Rossif, Angus and Kiefer; daughter, Rachel; and four grandchildren.

Kiefer paid tribute to his late father online, writing, "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 portrayed President Snow in the Hunger Games franchise films, with the official account paying tribute to the late actor: "We asked the kindest man in the world to portray the most corrupt, ruthless dictator we've ever seen. Such was the power and skill of Donald Sutherland's acting that he created one more indelible character among many others that defined his legendary career. We are privileged to have known and worked with him, and our thoughts are with his family." Helen Mirren also paid tribute to Sutherland.
