Veteran Canadian actor Shirley Douglas has died at 86.

Her son, actor Kiefer Sutherland, said she died due to complications from pneumonia unrelated to coronavirus.

“My mother was an extraordinary woman who led an extraordinary life. Sadly she had been battling for her health for quite some time and we, as a family, knew this day was coming.”

“To any families who have lost loved ones unexpectedly to the coronavirus, my heart breaks for you. Please stay safe,” Kiefer posted on Twitter.
