Vegan actor Evanna Lynch - who rose to fame in her role in Harry Potter as Luna Lovegood - has announced plans to debut a monthly beauty subscription box later this year.
Lynch made the announcement in her Instagram story, in a video post with a caption that read: "Launching a cruelty-free beauty box later in the year and would love your input!!"
The post also included a link to a survey regarding the impending release.
As reported by Allure, the star also explained her motives to followers.
She said: "Basically, as most of you know by now, I am very passionate about animals and I also love makeup, and I do not believe that the two should intersect.
"I don't think that you should need to use animals for makeup. However, that is the way the industry is at the moment so that is something we're trying to change."
This is by no means the first time Lynch has publicly advocated for veganism, and a more compassionate world.
