Actress Shannon Elizabeth might be best known for her role in American Pie as the European love interest of nearly everyone. Now, however, this socially conscious woman is taking on a new acting direction, one she says is closer to her own personality, which as a vegan, is environmentally aware.
In her latest film, a low-budget indie flick “A Green Story” Elizabeth plays Kelly, the real life daughter of Van Vlahakis, who left Greece with 22 dollars and went on to create the Earth Friendly cleaning products company.
Speaking on the red carpet at the premiere, Shannon said the film had a message that was close to her heart.
“I haven’t done a role like the American Pie stuff in a while, this is more going along the direction of who I really am, this is much more comfortable for me,” she explained.
She added: “I am always trying to be green and environmental, I’m vegan and it’s how I live my life and I’ve been wanting to do a project that is meaningful. When I read the script I knew it was what I wanted to do.”
One more victory for the vegan actors and actresses out there who continue to take on roles that help to promote a better world for all.
