Deborah Ann Woll and Janina Gavankar of HBO's True Blood say in new It Gets Better PSAs that they were bullied in school.

Woll plays newly-turned vampire Jessica Hamby and Gavankar plays Luna on the supernatural drama.

“I found a note in my locker that said, 'Why don't you just kill yourself, because nobody likes you,'” Woll says in her one-minute-forty-five-second video. “I used to get phone calls in the middle of the night, people saying mean things.”

The experience, Woll says, made her a better person: “I can now be a friend to the lonely.”

In another PSA, 27-year-old Gavankar, who played a promiscuous lesbian in Showtime's groundbreaking series The L Word, also says she can relate to LGBT teens who are bullied.

“I got verbally bullied in high school,” Gavankar says.

“So, if you're gay, straight, artistic, busier than everybody else because you actually have a life and something interesting to think about besides the gossip, and they hate you for it. That's OK. I know what all of those girls are doing now.”

“It gets better,” she adds. “Trust.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

Anna Paquin, who plays Sookie Stackhouse, Alexander 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.

More recently, Nelsan Ellis, who plays flamboyant gay prostitute and vampire blood dealer Lafayette Reynolds, Sam Trammell, who plays Sam Merlotte, and Joe Manganiello, who plays werewolf Alcide Herveaux, also joined the campaign.
