From the looks of the trailer, Jigsaw—the eighth installment of the Saw horror movie franchise—is going to be terrifying. Laura Vandervoort, who plays the film’s protagonist, has worked with PETA to show people that the horror her character experiences in the film is nothing compared to that endured by animals used for food, clothing, laboratory tests, or entertainment. She’s a devoted animal advocate and longtime vegan—and she’s helped PETA spread the word on a number of campaigns.
Here, we celebrate Laura’s dedication to animal rights:
She starred in a sexy ad with her body painted to look like a lizard’s in order to urge others to leave wildlife out of their wardrobes.
To raise awareness of the suffering of “backyard dogs” during the winter months, she entered an industrial freezer to simulate their life in frigid temperatures.
She often posts on social media about vegan goodies, meals, and fashion as well as her love and respect for animals.
As a longtime vegan, Laura made the connection: Faux is the only way to go.
