Donald Sutherland is an accomplished actor and film producer who, after a career spanning a half century and appearances in over 200 films and shows, has left his legacy and also cemented his place as one of truly Hollywood immortals. Although an engineer by education, his thespian career has seen him become a 2-time Golden Globe Award Winner and an Officer of the Order Of Canada (OC).
One of Donald’s early jobs was as a radio news reporter when he was just 14, and soon as a DJ. He soon quit his engineering dreams and turned to drama, studying more at London and at Scotland. After landing several small roles in films, he caught a chance 1967’s The Dirty Dozen which elevated his status and landed him a starring role in MASH in 1970.

He is rarely seen without a beard which has gone from a brown Chevron stache to a salt and pepper look and finally all snow white.
