Anna Paquin is the latest True Blood
co-star to record an It Gets Better video.
The 28-year-old Paquin plays Sookie
Stackhouse on the increasingly gay-inclusive HBO vampire hit True
Paquin announced she's bisexual soon
after she became engaged last year to co-star Stephen Moyer, who
plays vampire Bill Compton, and in her 60-second video she says she
has been the victim of bullying, though she doesn't say it was due to
her sexual orientation.
“I've been bullied, probably a lot
more people than you would ever suspect have been bullied in their
lives,” Paquin said.
“High school's rough, middle school
is probably rougher, and it gets better,” she added. (The video is
embedded in the right panel of this page.)
Skarsgard, who plays vampire Eric Northman, Rutina
Wesley, who plays lesbian cage-fighter Tara Thornton, and Kristen
Bauer, who plays vampire Pam Ravenscroft, have also recorded videos
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.
Paquin says nobody cares she's bisexual.)
