‘For me, it’s a human right’ – Zoë speaks to Channel 5 News about assisted dying debate

27 March 2024 14:43

Zoë appeared on Channel 5 News on 22 March to discuss a cause she passionately believes in: the legalisation of assisted dying for terminally ill individuals in the UK. ‘I think people should be allowed to live their lives and end their lives as they wish,’ she explained. ‘For me, it’s a human right,’ she added.

Her support for assisted dying, and decision to become a patron of campaigning organisation Dignity in Dying, has grown out of witnessing her dad, the influential actor and director Sam Wanamaker, dying of cancer in 1993. As Zoë reflected during the interview, little has changed in the legal landscape for assisted dying since then. She feels that legalising assisted dying in this country ‘should’ve happened years ago’.

This is the second time in recent weeks that Zoë has discussed this emotive subject on TV, following her similarly powerful Sky News interview on 7 March.
