Rutina Wesley, who plays Tara Thornton on HBO's vampire drama True Blood, reaches out to troubled LGBT teens in It Gets Better video.

In season four of True Blood, Wesley's Tara is involved with Naomi (Vedette Lim), a cage-fighter from New Orleans.

In her 47-second video, Wesley tells gay teens considering suicide that they are perfect.

“We all know that bullies suck and high school sucks, but it eventually gets better,” Wesley says. “Remember, you're perfect just the way you are.”

“And believe in yourself, because I believe in you. And know, that you're worth it,” she adds. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

Wesley joins castmates Alexander Skarsgard, who plays vampire Eric Northman, and Kristin Bauer, who plays vampire Pam Ravenscroft, in recording a video for gay activist Dan Savage's It Gets Better Project, which urges teens being bullied because they are or are perceived to be gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender to hang in there, because life gets better.
