Dark Friday: Top Ten Sexiest Vampires

When did vampires become sexy? I'm not sure what the answer to this is for everyone, but I'll bet for many it was with the novel Interview With a Vampire by Anne Rice. I remember reading that book and thinking that Louis and Lestat were just about the hottest guys ever. Of course, I always did kinda go for the bad boys, anyway. lol!

I devoured that series of books because I couldn't get enough of them. It got me hooked. Then I discovered Christine Feehan's Carpathians, and that was it for me. I fell in love with those hot, hunks of immortality and dark souls. That's when I started actively searching for books and movies that featured paranormal creatures. Some of my favorite books include Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunters, J.R. Ward's Black Dagger BrotherhoodAngela Knight's Mageverse, Stephanie Meyer's Twilight, and Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse series.

As far as movies go, I love Underworld, Blade and The Lost Boys. On the boob tube, I'm in love with The Vampire Diaries and Trueblood.  Oh, and I can't forget Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I discovered the series in reruns and fell in love with Angel and Spike. I couldn't ever decide which one I liked best. *grins*

Vampires led me to werewolves to witches to demons to elves, who knows what will be next? Anyway, here are my picks for the Top Ten Sexiest Male Vampires, IMHO! Enjoy. Feel free to suggest others. I'm sure I missed some.

10. Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen in Twilight

9.   Alexander Skarsgard as Eric Northman in Trueblood

8.  James Witherdale as James in Twilight

7.  James Marsters as Spike in Buffy the Vampire Slayer

6.  David Boreanz as Angel in Buffy the Vampire Slayer

5.  Tom Cruise as Lestat in Interview With a Vampire

4.  Jason Patric as Michael in Lost Boys

3.  Stuart Townsend as Lestat in Queen of the Damned

2.  Ian Somerhalder as Damon Salvatore in The Vampire Diaries

1.  Brad Pitt as Louis in Interview With a Vampire

Honorable Mention: I have to include Scott Speedman as Michael in Underworld: Evolution. I'm not exactly sure if he's a vampire or  werewolf or some kind of hybrid. But oh, my...he's definitely sexy!!


  1. While I'm not a huge fan of a lot of these vampires, I do love me a fine blood sucker. LOL I would suggest #9 deserves a higher spot on the list, but I'm biased. :)

  2. Mmmm... Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, that was my fave of the Vampire phenome... Angel, Spike??? Now, I have a few of my Vampires to fall for.

    The above Vampires are all sexy-appealing, but a lot of it is their eyes, the intensity.

  3. Ah, yes, Gabrielle. I do love Eric, but I liked him better in season one than I do now. That's why he slipped. lol!

  4. You're so right about the eyes, Savanna. Very mesmerizing.

  5. Oh my, how's a girl to choose! lol Great list, Bree... I adored Buffy's hotties, and have been intrigued by the Twilight crew (there's a soft little spot in my heart for Jasper!) But my new fav is Trueblood...Eric with a side of Eric, please!!!

  6. I know how you feel, Serena. But Brad has got to be my number one. He was just such a sensitive and vulnerable Louis. :)

  7. I like jason patric he is so hot and sexy too?

  8. I like jason patric he is so hot and sexy too?
