Los Angeles, Aug 23 (IANS) Beatles legend Paul McCartney persuaded makers of popular animated sitcom “The Simpsons” to make one of its characters Lisa a vegetarian in exchange for a guest spot.

The Huffington Post reported that the makers of “The Simpsons” agreed to make Lisa, the family’s iconic daughter, a vegetarian in exchange for the former Beatle’s agreement to play himself on a 1995 episode called — Lisa The Vegetarian.

Actor Hank Azaria, who has voiced several characters over the course of the show’s 27-series run, told the blog: “I can tell you, over the years, they were tempted a bunch of times to have Lisa break her vegetarian vow.”

He added that they “probably have not because they made that vow to Paul. No, you don’t break a knight’s vow. As we’ve learned from ‘Game Of Thrones’, you do that at your own risk.”
