'True Blood' Stars Say It Gets Better Kristin " Pam" Bauer and Alex "Eric" Skarsgard - "It Gets Better" video

For those of you who couldn't get enough of Eric on last night's episode of "True Blood," don't worry because the Swedish actor is featured--along with his castmates, Rutina Wesley, Kristin Bauer, and creator Alan Ball--in a new set of "It Gets Better" PSA's.

The project, which was started last fall by writer Dan Savage in response to a wave of very public LGBT youth suicides, has had many celebrity contributors since its creation, but this is the first time the "True Blood" cast has taken part in the project.

The hit HBO show has been labeled "The Most Gay-Friendly Show on TV," and its story lines often revolve around "vampire rights," tolerance and acceptance.

Join the cast of True Blood as they take the “It Gets Better” pledge: http://www.itgetsbetter.org. The Trevor Project offers help to any young person who is struggling.

The Trevor Project is determined to end suicide among LGBTQ youth by providing life-saving and life-affirming resources including our nationwide, 24/7 crisis intervention lifeline, digital community and advocacy/educational programs that create a safe, supportive and positive environment for everyone.

All's I can say is WOW, Kristin Bauer almost made me break down and cry.

This is a very good project, and both of them did well in getting their point across.
