Deborah Ann Woll on Bullying: I Got Phone Calls in the Night
Actress Deborah Ann Woll has recorded an extremely personal video for the It Gets Better campaign.
In the PSA Woll, who plays Jessica Hamby on HBO’s hit show True Blood, reveals that she was a victim of bullying while at school.
“I found a note in my locker that said, ‘Why don’t you just kill yourself, because nobody likes you,’” Woll reveals. She adds, “I used to get phone calls in the middle of the night, people saying mean things.”
Yet her drive to become an actress helped her to push through those times.
Woll ends the PSA saying: “I can now be a friend to the lonely.”
