Starting out at fifteen in the movie business may seem a little old these days – Anna Paquin was eleven when she won an Oscar for her work in The Piano – but in 1983 Kiefer Sutherland was intent on doing just that. With mother Shirley Douglas, a staple in Canadian acting circles and father Donald Sutherland, it’s amazing he could hold out until the ripe old age of fifteen. A little help from dad landed the younger Sutherland a part in the 1983 film, Max Dugan Returns. He played the role of the accidental President Tom Kirkman in the series Designated Survivor, which was cancelled by ABC in early 2018.
