There's been an explosion of fang-tastic films and telly programmes in recent years. We'd certainly be tempted to let a few of these vampires sink their teeth into us! Here's a list of our top 12 hottest TV and film vampires...


1. Damon Salvatore

The Vampire Diaries

This often reckless, bad-boy vampire is played by the delectable Ian Somerhalder in the Vampire Diaries series. Usually causing mischeif, we’ve started to see a softer side to Damon. We’d let him have a nibble…


2. Edward Cullen

Film - The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

One of the Cullen vampires in the Twilight Saga, Edward (played by Robert Pattinson) would do anything for his true love, Bella. He thinks of himself as a ‘vegetarian’ vampire as he only feeds on animal blood. Confusing. We don’t care though… look at that jaw line!


3. Angel

Ahh…the vampire with a soul! There’s no denying that Angel (David Boreanaz) was a hottie in his Buffy the Vampire Slayer days. We’d share a kip in a coffin with him any day.


4. Louis de Pointe du Lac

5. Eric Northman

Of all the vampires in True Blood, Eric was our fave! The Sheriff of Area Five, Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) could arrest us anytime. We could be his True Bl-ove (see what we did there?!).


6. John Mitchell

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Premeire - London

This hottie (played by Aidan Turner) struggled a little with his vampirism in the BBC drama Being Human. He suffered terrible guilt and tried to deny his cravings to become as human as possible. Luckily he had a werewolf and a ghost as best friends…


7. Stefan Salvatore

The Vampire Diaries

Another of the gorgeous Salvatore vampires, Stefan (Paul Wesley) certainly has chiseled good looks! Often fighting his ‘ripper’ alter-ego, Stefan is a sensitive soul. Which Salvatore brother would you choose?


8. Jerry Dandrige

Total Recall Photocall - Berlin

In the 2011 remake of Fright Night, Colin Farrell plays blood-lusting vampire Jerry. He certainly gets our blood pumping…!


9. David

lost boys - keiferPerhaps not a conventional choice, but there was something about antagonistic, charasmatic David (Kiefer Sutherland) in The Lost Boys, even if he did meet an impaling end!


10. Vlad

Dracula-Untold-luke evansPlayed by Luke Evans in the 2014 film Dracula Untold, Vlad is turned into a vampire to save his kingdom from an impending threat.


11. Dracula

Dracula - Season 1Another of the various adaptations of Dracula saw Jonathan Rhys Meyers take on the title role in this NBC version of the tale. With his brooding good looks we were under his evil spell…


12. Deacon Frost

7th Rome Film Festival - Motel Life Premiere

Stephen Dorff played this vampire in the 1998 film Blade. He may have met a grisly end, but we wouldn’t have minded being his mate!
