The actor himself has not yet commented on the charges.
Actress Porsche De Rossi (Portia De Rossi) accused the actor and producer Steven Seagal of harassment that allegedly occurred during one of the auditions for the role in his film.
My final audition for a Steven Segal movie took place in his office. He told me how important it was to have chemistry off-screen as he sat me down and unzipped his leather pants. I️ ran out and called my agent. Unfazed, she replied, “well, I didn’t know if he was your type.”

How many years was Rossi and for which film she was auditioned, is not specified. The wife of Rossi, TV presenter Ellen Degeneres said she was proud of her.
In addition, Segal was accused of harassment actress Julianne Margulis (TV series “Good wife”), as well as former actress and correspondent of Inside Edition, Lisa Guerrero.
Margulis said: when she was 23 years old, she was invited to an evening audition at the hotel. Representatives of Segal said that there will be a female casting director in the room, but the actor was alone.
I saw his genitals. I’ve never seen them in real life. I ran out of there, I do not know how I got out of there. I somehow got out of this situation.
According to Guerrero, in 1996, when she was 32 years old, Segal had auditioned with her for the film “Fire from the Underworld” in one silk dressing gown. The actress manager said that Segal was ready to offer her a leading role in the film if she agreed to a “private rehearsal”. Guerrero refused.
Actress Ray Dawn Chong (Rae Dawn Chong) also told that in the 1980s Segal was present at the casting in one robe and molested it. For several years he left “sexual messages” on the answering machine, Chong noted.
Sigal has not yet commented on the charges against him. The Guardian turned to the actors for comments.
