Canadian actress, activist and noted family member, she was the ex-wife of actor Donald Sutherland (married from 1966-1970) and the mother of their son, Kiefer Sutherland. Her father was Tommy Douglas, a Canadian politician and once Premier of Saskatchewan. During the late 1960s she moved to the US with her then-husband and became active in the Civil Rights Movement.

As the daughter of Tommy Douglas, who brought Medicare to Canada, she was also one of Canada's most prominent activists in favour of the publicly funded health care system over privatized care.

The recipient of many awards for her work on stage, she was made a member of the Order of Canada in 2003.

Douglas was the mother of three children: Thomas Emil Sicks from her marriage to Canadian prairie brewery heir Timothy Emil Sicks and twins Rachel Sutherland and Kiefer Sutherland from her second marriage to Canadian actor Donald Sutherland.

By 2009, Douglas was in a wheelchair due to a degenerative spine condition that caused her severe pain. She died in Toronto on 5 April 2020 at age 86 due to complications from pneumonia.
