Harry Potter Star Plans to Launch Vegan Podcast

Actress Evanna Lynch is increasing her efforts to mainstream veganism and looking for a co-host to help.

Vegan actress Evanna Lynch—known for her role as Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter series—has announced that she is working on launching a vegan-themed podcast. “I’m still looking for a co-host so we’ll see how that works out,” Lynch said, “but I’m starting to blog about veganism because I feel like there are so many people who are interested.” Lynch revealed that her podcast would focus on making veganism appealing and easy to understand, stating, “It’s not quite mainstream yet, but it’s getting there.” Lynch discussed her choice to go vegan during an award ceremony in Dublin last year, where she explained to a group of colleagues that “Killing and eating animals is a betrayal of our own core humanity.”
