Los Angeles – Harry Potter actor Evanna Lynch appears in a brand-new makeup tutorial video for peta2, PETA’s youth division—and it has an ugly twist. In the video, which comes just in time for World Week for Animals in Laboratories, Lynch is the victim of an “experimenter” who puts her through the very same gruesome experiments that animals used in cosmetics testing endure.
After being subjected to tests for skin and eye irritancy, among others, she concludes, “If you’re not OK with putting animals through these tests, then maybe you should only be buying cosmetics that are truly cruelty-free.”
peta2—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to experiment on”—notes that as many as 300,000 animals are tortured and killed every year in these cruel cosmetics tests, primarily in China, which make the Cruciatus Curse look like a tickling spell. peta2’s Beauty Without Bunnies database currently lists more than 3,100 compassionate, cruelty-free companies that don’t test on animals, such as e.l.f., Pacifica, Tarte, Too Faced, Urban Decay, and wet n wild.
Lynch previously appeared in a vegan cooking tutorial for peta2. She’s part of a long list of celebrities—including Torrey DeVitto, Hayes Grier, Madelaine Petsch, Krysten Ritter, Christian Serratos, Laura Vandervoort, and many others—who’ve teamed up with peta2 to promote kindness to animals.
