In one of the more bizarre events in Cumbria’s calendar, Hollywood icon and the recently appointed Russian special envoy to America, is to hold a questions and answer session in West Cumbria next month.

Superstar Steven Seagal is set to captivate the audience at Whitehaven Golf Club with stories from his action-packed career on Friday, November 29.

The actor, film producer, screenwriter, martial artist and musician is best known for starring in films including Hard to Kill, Under Siege and On Deadly Ground.

His recent foray into politics and diplomatic relations has been equally eye-catching, having recently been made Russia's special envoy to America by president Vladimir Putin.

It is unclear whether Mr Seagal will take questions on the role.

But attendees will be able to find out for themselves, by buying a general or VIP ticket through the events section of the Whitehaven Golf Course website.
