Deadline reports talent agency CAA confirmed Sutherland died in Miami, Fla., on Thursday (June 20) following a long illness.

His son, fellow actor Kiefer Sutherland, also confirmed the acting legend's passing via social media.

"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," Kiefer wrote on X (formerly Twitter).

The Hollywood icon starred in Pride & Prejudice, won an Emmy for HBO's Citizen X and was most recently known as President Snow in the wildly popular The Hunger Games franchise.

Sutherland won a Golden Globe award for the television movie Path to War.
