After studying at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, it wouldn't take Donald Sutherland long to begin to make a name for himself in British films and TV. Early roles included starring in horror films like Castle of the Living Dead alongside the late actor Christopher Lee, before making his breakthrough with 1967 war film The Dirty Dozen. As MGM's highest grossing movie of the year, it was the push Donald needed to take his career back across the pond.
Born July 17, 1935, Canadian actor Donald Sutherland had a knack for acting from an early age. Not only did Donald have a flair for drama, but he was also quite gifted mathematically!
