Actor Alexander Skarsgard, who plays vampire Eric Northman in HBO’s True Blood, has joined his co-stars in recording a message to LGBT teens and all those who may be considering suicide due to bullying.
In the video Skarsgard says that it is important to teach children to respect the human value of others, and adds, “To bully someone, or for society to discriminate against someone because they have a different sexual orientation is unacceptable.” He vows that when he has kids he will make sure they know that.
