Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens: ‘I Am Sort of Vegan'

Dan Stevens might have suffered an untimely death in “Downton Abbey” but off screen he’s living a healthy life on a semi-plant based diet.

The English actor spoke to The Daily Mail about his career and personal life and when asked whether he cooked at all, Stevens surprisingly announced he sticks mostly with a plant-based diet.

“I have a mean recipe for vegan brownies,” he said. “I am sort of vegan – not like Jessica Chastain or Alicia Silverstone vegan – I have a prawn every now and again!”

Turns out it’s more than just an occasional prawn that keeps Stevens from fully embracing a plant based diet. When preparing for his new role on the independent movie “The Guest”, which comes out in September, he had to eat a few more animals.

“I play an American soldier, so for four months I had to train seven days a week, four hours a day, and eat several cows. Getting in that kind of shape is hard work,” he admitted. Next time Stevens needs to bulk up, he should schedule a chat with any of the notable vegan athletes (from NFL players to Olympians) to find out how they get buff without the beef.

Now that the training for the film is over, maybe Chastain can teach Stevens how to make some of her delicious vegan soul food and turn him into a full time vegan like herself. Despite his imperfect diet, we’re glad to hear Stevens is embracing vegan foods for the sake of animals and the health of the planet.

In the meantime, though, how about sharing that recipe for the vegan brownies, Dan?
