Emily from horror movie "The Possession" ("Exorcist" type). She is a vegetarian, at the beginning she shows two signs saying: "Stop the killing, eat vegetables" and "When you eat animals you become one!". One of the most horrible scenes is when dybuk forces her to eat meat.

Rachael from Glee is a vegan.
I think all Middle-earth elves are vegan, they only seem to be portrayed eating salad.
In 'The Hobbit' the dinner scene in Rivendell portrays this and the dwarves are none too happy with it!

the spiders had them wrapped up ready to eat. killing was to free frodo who was bitten
I didn't remember the elves freeing them though, I thought it was Bilbo and his magic daggar- sting. Yep, that's where he named it!

E.T., the extraterrestrial from Steven Spielberg's hugely successful 1982 movie, appears to be vegetarian. In the movie, he is shown eating several times, but the only things he eats are (1) fruits, (2) Reese's Pieces candy, and (3) beer. He tries a potato salad, but doesn't like it.

There is also a novel about E.T., called "E.T.: The Book of the Green Planet": http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/225698.E_T_ . In the novel, E.T.'s people are described as great botanists, with unsurpassed knowledge of plants from many different worlds. The master botanist of E.T.'s race is almost Buddha-like; in the book, when the master walks through the forest mud, flowers sprout from his footsteps.

Munroe from Grimm is vegan. A human / wolf being who went vegan to control his instinctive desire for blood.
Fun central character in a cheesy but entertaining fantasy series - better than the wooden lead Nick anyway.

I think you've got your MiddleEarth movies mixed up. It was The Hobbit where the dwarves were wrapped up and about to be eaten, then Bilbo comes and cuts them down. The elves came and attacked the spiders that started chasing their escaping meals. Tauriel meets Kili then and romance ensu.. oh sorry, getting carried away..

Had to look up who you mean from Breaking Bad, OK now I remember. Interesting that the vegan character was basically portrayed as a bit of a wierdo loner however he was quite a nice person (apart from when relating to his decision to produce meth), I quite liked him and felt for him in the end.

It doesn't seem like Phoebe from "Friends" is very serious about being a vegetarian. In the one where they went to Las Vegas she said she was going to get a 99 cent steak. Monica said, "But you don't eat animals." Phoebe responded, "For 99 cents I'd eat you." She sold her ethics for 99 cents.

I like Prot from the movie "K-Pax" and the Vulcans from Star Trek. In one episode of Voyager Tuvok said to Neelix something like, "I'll eat anything you serve me." Did he mean anything except meat? It seems established in Enterprise (I haven't seen much of TOS) that Vulcans are vegetarians but I have not heard any references to Tuvok being a vegetarian.

Lydia from breaking bad may be vegan as well. She was always asking for soy milk in the cafe. it seems the actress maybe vegan as well. (Can't be sure as google doesn't have any definitive results) There's a huffinngton post which says the actress was enjoying vegan Haggis in her summer home or something.

Lydia's new for soy milk I don't recall but I do remember the stevia. Thinking about it Breaking Bad seemed to be in favour of mainstream stuff, Hank the hero liked a good barbecue, whereas the person trying to be clever with their stevia - well the stevia didn't really work out so well for her.
