Los Angeles – Just in time for the return of her hit TV show, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Lucy Davis is back in a spellbinding new Q&A for PETA, in which she dishes about how her refusal to eat meat off or on camera impacted the storylines for her character.

Davis says, “[W]e had some episodes where my sister Zelda talks of wanting to eat long pig. … Hilda found all of this quite repulsive. Gradually as time went on and because obviously I don’t eat meat myself and I didn’t want to eat it in the scenes or anything, I noticed that a great script came along where Hilda made the Dark Lord a vegetable pie. … [S]o I was really pleased.”

When she’s not making magic on set or whipping up her favorite vegan dishes, like dairy-free Daiya cheesecake, Davis is likely playing hide-and-seek with her adopted dog, Gracie. And she adds that her love of animals doesn’t fall far from the tree: “My nephew, for example … got chickens and … he just loves them so much, so now he doesn’t eat chicken,” she says. “When you connect with loving people and loving [animals], all our energy changes around that.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat or abuse in any other way”—notes that animals raised and killed for food develop friendships; feel joy, love, pain, and fear; and want to live just as much as we do. Each person who goes vegan saves the lives of nearly 200 animals every year.

Davis is part of a long list of celebrities—including Sarah Jeffery, Madelaine Petsch, Kat Graham, Noah Cyrus, and Bella Thorne—who’ve teamed up with PETA or its affiliates to promote kindness to animals.

PETA opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
