Kiefer Sutherland was born in London, England in 1966 and is a proud Canadian actor, director, and producer, who has had a storied career in the entertainment industry. He is most widely known for his work in the series 24, which he also executive produced and won numerous awards for.
Kiefer's parents, Donald Sutherland and Shirley Douglas, were both involved in arts, activism, and politics. His mother was an active member of the NDP party and his father was a known actor. From a young age Kiefer saw his parents sustain their passion for art as he followed their footsteps into the film industry.
Making his television debut in 1983 at the age of 17, Kiefer was already a rising star, appearing in films like The Lost Boys and Stand By Me. He also had memorable roles in films like A Few Good Men and Phone Booth. He then acted on Fox's 24 which ran for eight seasons, gathering numerous accolades and awards along the way, making Sutherland an even more popular actor.
Observing the immense success Sutherland had, Kiefer continued to be involved with many projects that pushed the boundaries of television and film plots. Over the years, he has received numerous awards and recognition for his work as an actor, including an Emmy Award and multiple Golden Globe nominations.
In recent years, Kiefer has shown no signs of slowing down. He is currently working with Quibi on a new show called The San Francisco Kid and developing a drama pilot for Hulu about a CIA black-ops team. Although his career has been full of successes, Kiefer's most valued project is Familio - an app used to share family moments and news with family members all around the world - something that he has always strived to strengthen and maintain throughout his life.
While Kiefer may have reached success on different platforms throughout his career, fan or not, it is undeniable that this man is dedicated to connecting with his family wherever they are in the world - be it through mass media or family apps like Familio.
