After Canadian star Donald Sutherland passed away aged 88 after a long illness, a string of Hollywood personalities along with US President Joe Biden paid their tributes.
President Biden took to X to honour Sutherland, who he described as “a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and one-of-a-kind actor who inspired and entertained the world for decades.”
Veteran star Helen Mirren, who starred with him in The Leisure Seeker, shared a statement, where she said Donald Sutherland was one of the smartest actors she ever worked with.
Mirren added: “He had a wonderful enquiring brain and a great knowledge of a wide variety of subjects. He combined this great intelligence with a deep sensitivity, and with a seriousness about his profession as an actor.”
“This all made him into the legend of film that he became. He was my colleague and became my friend. I will miss his presence in this world.”
In the thriller Klute, Sutherland starred as a romantic lead and titular character John Klute across Jane Fonda’s Bree Daniels. Filmmaker, actor and 2017’s Baby Driver director Edgar Wright posted his tribute to X, praising Sutherland’s legacy in film and TV.
“RIP the great Donald Sutherland, a favourite actor and always fascinating screen presence. He starred in two of my very favourite and most influential films – Don’t Look Now and the 1978 Invasion Of The Bodysnatchers,” Wright tweeted.
Memorable movies, starting with his break-through in The Dirty Dozen’, and then with M*A*S*H, Kelly’s Heroes, Little Murders, and JFK, among many others,” Wright said. (IANS)
