In an interview this week with the Associated Press, actress Thandie Newton—who performs “Val” within the new movie Solo: A Star Wars Story—revealed that she is now vegan. Newton, who was interviewed alongside co-star/animal advocate Woody Harrelson, praised Harrelson’s skill to carry out demanding duties on set, and teased the actor that, at 56 years previous, he may very well be “all people’s mother or father.” The actress went on to disclose that she was impressed by Harrelson’s life-style to eschew animal merchandise herself. “I feel it’s good to have a vegan within the combine… a vegan ready of energy. I’ve been vegan since working with Woody,” Newton stated, earlier than revealing that she has been vegan for 4 months. Newton joins a rising forged of Star Wars alums which have adopted a vegan life-style in the course of the filming of their respective motion pictures, together with Daisy Ridley who performed “Rey” in final 12 months’s iteration Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
