If you’re anything like me, you’ve already binged your way through the second season of the hit Netflix show Stranger Things. If you haven’t made time to watch it yet, don’t worry—I won’t share any spoilers here. But I do have some other exciting news: A new character on the show is vegan in real life!


In a recent interview, Sadie Sink, who stars as newcomer Maxine “Max” Mayfield, explains:
I am a passionate Vegan. I actually was a vegetarian for about a year and when I was working on The Glass Castle with Woody Harrelson he and his family inspired me to become a Vegan.
And the actress told W Magazine that it’s still “honestly one of the best decisions” she’s ever made. Sinks joins a long list of celebrities who are singing the praises of a vegan diet after ditching meat, dairy, and eggs. Late last week, Laverne Cox, who plays Sophia Burset on Orange Is the New Black, took to Instagram and Twitter to share that she went vegan 12 weeks ago. She says it’s “the best thing ever!”
Plus, The Office star Craig Robinson, singer Jason Derulo, and actress Edie Falco have all recently announced they’ve switched to a vegan diet.
You can join the millions of people taking a stand for animals, the planet, and their own health by ditching meat and other animal products. For delicious vegan recipes, meal ideas, and tips on making the switch, click here.
