He may have a completely different accent to when we interviewed him last year, but Alexander Skarsgard is pushing all the right buttons with his addition to the ‘It Gets Better’ anti-gay bullying campaign. For which we salute him, in all the usual places.

‘To bully someone – or for society to discriminate against someone – because they have a different sexual orientation, it’s unacceptable.
‘I don’t have any children yet but the day I do, I will make sure that before they walk, before they can even crawl, they know how important that is and I hope you do the same.’
