Thomas Dekker plays the somewhat “golden child” John Connor on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. But unlike other special children, being marked doesn’t work in his favor, as it targets him for assassination by a “Terminator” named Cromatie.
The episodes involve routine activities in any teen boy’s life, like running away from the killer robots with mom, pretending you’re not a weirdo at school, and blowing up and burning other robots.
And how about that hot good Terminator robot, Cameron Phillips, played by Summer Glau? Giggity, giggity. Ahem…moving on to vegetarian news.
Thomas has been a vegetarian since 12 (he’s 21 now) and an encounter on a pig farm gradually led him to remove all meat from his diet.
From the March 2009 issue of Vegetarian Times:
“When I was about eight years old, I stumbled on a pig factory. After seeing what went on there, I immediately gave up all pig products. Then, four years later, I asked myself the obvious question: “Why am I not eating pigs, but still eating other animals?” So at that point I gave it all up.”
We’ve heard of shunning red meat first, then becoming vegetarian. And then there are people who go vegetarian before going vegan. But to give up pig products, then give up the rest of animals is quite a different way to go. Awesome that it worked for Thomas!
Pick up the latest issue of Vegetarian Times on the stands to learn what Thomas’ favorite veggie dish is. Hint: It includes pasta and Tofurky sausages.
