I’m not an omnivore, I just play one on TV.

At least that’s the case for True Blood actress Michelle Forbes who plays evil lady Maryann Forbes on the hit show.

Forbes recently sat down with BlackBookMag.com to discuss her character, her diet and her personal belief system. She said:

“I do believe that she’s a character that’s all about perspective. If you think that this is an immortal being. She’s been around since the beginning of time. She’s lived in certain periods of our humanity, where there were people who would sit and watch other men tear each other apart for sport. Children were sacrificed. It’s not unheard of in history. In her mind, she’s seen it all. I think what’s great about the storyline is that it challenges our belief system. You and I can sit here in 2009 and say it’s outrageous that someone would sacrifice humans. My belief system, as a vegetarian, can’t believe that animals are being sacrificed. I stand by that in Maryann’s mind, there’s nothing malevolent. She has a different way of looking at the world.”

We’re pretty big True Blood fans here at the Razz and happy to see that all those human hearts Maryanne eats are probably soy-based. What CAN’T you do with mock meat?

Read between the vegan headlines

They say bad news travels fast, but I’d race vegan news against it.

WHY ARE WE SO CONFUSED?

The desire to be consistent morally results in an illogical rationalization of this nonsensical belief that it’s okay to eat the animals we claim to love.

Compared to the modern world, it was much harder to be vegan in Ma‘arrī’s time and place due to the religious and social pressures.
