As Luna Lovegood in the “Harry Potter” films, Evanna Lynch was quirky, kindhearted, and ever-optimistic.
Sometimes she was picked on for her oddities. But she never became angry.
Now the actress is showing a tougher side.
The 24-year-old Irish actress believes that animals should be treated as humanely as possible.
She’s vegan and doesn’t eat meat or animal products. Here’s what she told me:
“The suffering is completely unnecessary and is easily remedied with a little bit of compassion.
So many people aren’t aware this trade goes on for instance, I’m vegan, but my family eat meat, and when I tell them what goes on, they say, ‘It doesn’t happen here.’ Because people don’t realize this horrible practice happens.
It’s grotesque but it’s the truth. I don’t think it would continue if people were aware.”
