Greta Thunberg has been praised for her hilarious response to Amanda Henderson after the actress called her ‘Sharon’ during her appearance on the TV show called Celebrity Mastermind.
While answering the questions, the 33-year-old Casualty star was asked what the name of the Swedish activist who wrote ‘No One is Too Small to Make a Difference’ was.
“The 2019 book entitled No One is Too Small to Make a Difference is a collection of speeches made by a Swedish climate change activist. What’s her name?” the quizmaster asked Amanda.
Responding to the host of the show, Amanda said: “Sharon?”
Soon enough, the clip from the show went viral whereas Greta Thunberg decided to approve of Amanda’s answer by changing her Twitter name to Sharon.
“I didn’t think I could admire you anymore – and then I saw your name change. Happy birthday, Sharon!” one fan praised the teen eco-warrior after her response.
“You’re awesome not to let anything get to you Sharon!” another one wrote.
The name incident followed shortly after Greta Thunberg’s father, Svante Thunberg, has spoken out and revealed how his daughter’s decision to embark on a global eco-crusade helped save his daughter from depression.
As Svante admitted, he initially thought that his daughter leading the climate change movement was a “bad idea.”
However, as Mr. Thunberg expressed, he believes the eco-crusade saved his daughter because she previously refused to speak and eat properly.
“We thought it was a bad idea, just the idea of your own daughter sort of putting herself at the very front line of such a huge question like climate change. You wouldn’t want that as a parent,” Svante said during his appearance on BBC Radio 4 Today.
According to the dad, his daughter had been depressed for years after she was diagnosed with Asperger’s, causing her to shut in at her home and stop talking to other people.
As Svante added, Greta’s condition began improving after her mum stopped flying and he turned vegan.
“We are not climate activists, we never were. We knew it was the right thing to do – but I didn’t do it to save the climate, I did it to save my child,” he said.
Mr. Thunberg has also claimed that her health has significantly improved after she started skipping school to protest in front of the parliament.
“During her first sit-in outside the Swedish parliament, she began answering journalists’ questions as when they approached her. On the third day, she ate a vegan pad thai dish someone had handed to her,” he explained.
“I cannot explain what a change that meant to her and to us. And she could do things she could not have done before. I can see Greta is very happy from doing this.”
