'24' actor Kiefer Sutherland doesn't mind if he is defined by the action series, where he plays secret agent Jack Bauer

Kiefer Sutherland doesn't mind if '24' defines his career.

The actor - who is best known for his portrayal of hunky secret agent Jack Bauer in the long-running TV series - loves being involved in the drama series and doesn't care if it limits his future acting roles.

He said: He said: "If '24' is the thing that defines my career, and nobody else wants to work with me again because of it, I would have to say I would take it - without a second's hesitation."

The finale of '24' appeared on British television last night (06.06.10), as Kiefer prepares to turn follow the eight series with a two-hour-long film.

The 43-year-old star has also defended the use of torture in the show, and admits he believes it was a powerful way to make viewers realise what time pressures the agent was under.

He added to The Daily Telegraph newspaper: "It was a fantastic dramatic device for us to create a sense of not only urgency but the importance of the information that Bauer needs to acquire. Am I recommending this for people at home? No. Of course I don't support anything that happened in Guantanamo Bay, but I think we're also being very naive to pretend that torture doesn't exist out there. It's a television show - take it for what it is."
