Actor (X-Men: Days of Future Past) Gregg Lowe went straight from meat eater to vegan in 2011. “I rarely had dairy products because I had bad asthma as a child and they set it off. I am motivated to be vegan by compassion – for animals and for one another as animals, because meat, fish and dairy-eating is destroying the world. I respect Viva! and like supporting the charity as they have spent 20 years spreading truth, saving lives and making a difference.”
Lowe had an interest in acting from a very early age, and began singing and acting with the local drama society at just 5 years old. Three years later, he began his professional career starring in Peter Pan at the Cambridge Theatre in London's West End and UK tour. At the age of 16, Gregg moved permanently to London where he studied Drama and Musical Theatre at the Arts Educational Schools of London. On graduating, he immediately joined the International tour of Mamma Mia in 2003, playing the role of Pepper. For this part, he travelled to 14 countries world wide including China, the Middle East and Europe. His first TV appearances were in Doctors (BBC), Genie in the House (Nickelodeon) and the acclaimed short film Lorraine for NFTS. After seeing his performance in Wolf Boy, director Trevor Nunn offered Gregg a role in the original cast of Bird Song at the comedy theatre, London, in which he would portray the young soldier Tommy Tipper. In 2012, Gregg relocated to Canada where he appeared in The Spies of Warsaw, starring David Tennant (BBC), Warehouse 13 (SiFi), Beauty and the Beast (CW), Bomb Girls (Global), and Murdoch Mysteries. In 2013, Gregg was chosen to portray the role of the mutant Ink in Bryan Singers greatly anticipated X-Men: Days of Future Past.
A friend gave me Jonathan Safran Foer’s illuminating book, Eating Animals, to read. That really changed the way I looked at things, what food I was eating, where it came from, and what my money was supporting.Gregg Lowe
