Peter is a stage and screen actor, perhaps most well-known for his roles in Downton Abbey (2012-15) and Chariots of Fire (1981). Already a strong advocate for animal rights, he participated in Veganuary in 2016. Discovering just how many alternatives there are that replace the foods he used to rely on, he’s remained vegan ever since.
He says that although he’ll always support Veganuary, he won’t have to do it again – because he’s now vegan! In 2016 he spoke to Veganuary about his journey.
In 2019, Peter Egan recorded a video for Veganuary on the topic: “Is It Hard To Be Vegan?”
