Vegan Maggie Q

Star of the drama Nikita, Maggie Q is proud to be veg.

Maggie Q, star of The CW’s new drama Nikita, is happy to be in a position to spread a message of vegetarianism and animal rights, she said. Maggie Q is a champion of animal rights, has three dogs at home, and has in the past done ads with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). The star, who is recognized for her fit physique, hopes to encourage others to adopt a vegetarian diet as well. “I’ve never felt better in my life, ever,” she said. “In terms of consciousness, what benefits our body and benefits animal welfare also benefits the planet. It’s all connected.” The actress has also starred in action films such as Mission: Impossible III and Live Free or Die Hard.
