True Blood’s Nelsan Ellis: It Gets Better
True Blood actor Nelson Ellis has contributed a video to the It Gets Better project.
Ellis, who plays gender non-conforming Lafayette Reynolds on HBO’s hit supernatural drama, says in the video “I was the odd kid in my family. Later in life I learned to embrace who I was and all of my differences, because I realized they make me beautiful.”
