Harry Potter star and vegan activist Evanna Lynch will debut a vegan podcast next month.
Titled The ChickPeeps, the podcast will feature a group of Lynch's vegan friends, in a bid to encourage her fanbase to go vegan.
The forthcoming podcast will include co-hosts vegan actor Robbie Jarvis, vegan spiritual expert Momoko Hill, and vegan activist Tylor Starr.
The Harry Potter actor aims to show her fans that veganism is not 'radical and extreme'.
"I was vegetarian and would speak about the ethics of it, and then I realized the inconsistencies of it because people were asking, 'Why aren't you vegan?'" Lynch told VegNews.
"I think there was a lot of pressure just to know everything, and I felt really overwhelmed."
The Chickpeeps will be covering topics from how to talk to non-vegans to the link between veganism and eating disorders.
"I just want to get people together and have these conversations, and learn as we go," explained Lynch.
"I still have a lot of questions I haven’t fully investigated, and the podcast gives me the opportunity to do that."
The show will launch in October, with the possibility of it becoming a weekly series.
