Peter Egan


Celebrated actor and animal activist Peter Egan is extremely dedicated to all our campaigns including Ban Live Exports and End the Cage Age. Known for his roles in popular TV shows such as Downtown Abbey and Unforgotten, Peter is always keen to support our work when his busy schedule allows. As well as attending our rallies and events, he regularly shares our posts on his social media channels, helping increase our reach and build a strong army of support to end factory farming. Most recently, Peter helped us raise awareness about the cruelty of live exports and our legal challenge against the Scottish Government with an opinion piece in the London Economic. We are lucky to have such an actively involved Patron and Visionary.

The live export of animals is a cruel and totally unnecessary trade. We must keep exposing the truth until the suffering stops.
