The “24 (2001–2010)” actor, Kiefer, remembered his father, Donald, as a performer who loved his craft and as one of Hollywood’s most iconic stars.

Donald Sutherland is survived by his wife, Francine Racette, and his five children: Rossif Sutherland, Angus Sutherland, Roeg Sutherland, Kiefer Sutherland, and Rachel Sutherland.

Preceding Health Issues of Kiefer Sutherland

In February 2010, Kiefer had to undergo a surgical procedure because of a cyst rupturing near one of his kidneys while working with the production of the Fox network’s thriller TV Series “24.”

Consequently, Fox TV announced right after his surgery that they were temporarily suspending production of Season 8 of the series.

Regarding his health scare, he said,

”I’ve broken my ankle, my wrist, my elbow, ribs, collarbone, my kneecaps, most of those filming ”24” – but the most painful was my pinkie toe. There was a bomb sequence where things were exploding all around me and I was a bit slow getting to my mark and I got hit. It doesn’t sound very butch but it made my eyes water.”
