'True Blood' stars Alexander Skarsgard
and Kristin Bauer share personal stories in It
Gets Better videos.
In her video, Bauer, who plays vampire
Pam Ravenscroft on the HBO drama, tells troubled LGBT kids that
something magical could be right around the corner.
The actress shares a lonely time in her
life when something beautiful happened unexpectedly.
“I went up to my room and I just
cried and cried, and I was so low, and fell asleep and woke up and
thought I might as well, you know, go get something to eat, I guess.
And I walked outside, and this was the thing, I've never seen
anything so beautiful. New York was like this magical Narnia
“You just never know what's around
the corner,” an
emotional Bauer says. “And I told myself, 'Just stick around
and see.' It gets better.”
Thirty-four-year-old Skarsgard, who
plays vampire Eric Northman on True Blood, pledges to teach
his unborn children that all people have value in his
“We have to teach our children that –
not only through our words but also through our actions – that
every single human being has equal value,” Skarsgard says. “And
to bully someone, or for society to discriminate against someone,
because they have a different sexual orientation is unacceptable.”
