EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT LUCIE

Lucie Shorthouse is just starting out in her career, but she’s already causing a stir in the West End, having won Best Supporting Actress in a Musical at the WhatsOnStage Awards

Hi Lucie, it’s great to speak to you. Have you always dreamed of being on the stage?

It’s always been what I wanted to do. I wanted to go to stage school when I was 11, but my parents encouraged me to get an education and then I wanted to apply for drama school when I was 18 and they encouraged me to go to university, which I really got on board with because, as much as I love this, I do love studying. I went to Cambridge and I did Education with English and Drama, so it was a compromise.

After my final year, I knew I would always think what if so I applied for some drama schools and managed to get into one. I felt like I was putting my life on hold when everyone else was getting jobs and onto graduate schemes and earning money, but I always knew I would regret it if I didn’t give it a try. Although it’s taken me a bit longer, no one can take my degree away from me.

About Vegan Life

I’m so excited to be writing my first editor’s letter and that we are finally, undeniably, amidst the summer season! Speaking of sunshine – this issue we’re taking a trip across the globe to the, what-should-be, luscious rainforests of Indonesia, to examine the devastating effects the palm oil business has wreaked on this stunning, natural area. We also explore how sustainable growing solutions can save the habitat of our characterful, fluffy friends, orangutans, from the relentless palm industry (see page 66). Also in this issue, we are introducing you to the lovely Lucie Shorthouse, a West End star and vegan advocate. She discussed her choice to transition to veganism, the health benefits she found from a plant based diet, and her role in the innovative new play ‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’ (page 16). With so many vegans making waves in the creative industry, our Art Special celebrates the brave names that paint the true picture of animal cruelty, and cleverly portray the need for veganism through their work – get inspired on page 90. Finally, the summer evokes the need to create fun, easy and time-filling activities for kids, but are our most popular pastimes educating children into insensitive mind-sets? Charlotte Meyer Zu Natrup gives her view on the ‘To zoo, or not to zoo?’ debate on page 76. Enjoy the issue and make sure to share your opinions with us via email, Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. P.S. Don’t miss our hilarious article from Jake Yapp, who puts a cheeky twist on chickpeas on page 114.
