The Lord of the Rings actor will discuss his career both on screen and behind the camera at the one-off event on Sunday, March 3 ahead of the UK premiere of his new western The Dead Don't Hurt which he both both directs and stars in alongside Vicky Krieps, Danny Huston and Solly McLeod. 

Since making his screen debut alongside Harrison Ford in Witness in 1985, Viggo has built up an impressive CV and earned three Best Actor Oscar nominations for Eastern Promises, Captain Fantastic and Green Book.
