ATV Today’s new poll is asking you to vote for your favourite vampire and there’s plenty of choices!
Have vampires ever been hotter? True Blood and The Vampire Diaries is staffed with hot vampires – and hot werewolves as well – and film franchise Twilight isn’t short of hot vampires – or actually werewolves either for that matter – if the likes of Robert Pattinson tickle your fancy. Of course it could be argued that Buffy the Vampire Slayer and spin-off Angel paved the way for hot vampires with Spike (James Marsters), Angel himself (David Boreanaz) and Darla (Julie Benz).
So with so many hot vampires on the big-screen and small screen we decided to find out just which one you think is hotter than the rest. To help you choose we’ve got a quick run down of the candidates!
Top of our candidates list of Bram Stokers’ cult classic creation Dracula himself. The blood-sucking Count has been adapted for film and television numerous times and amongst the many actors to portray him are Christopher Lee, Gary Oldman, Marc Warren and Gerard Butler. Sexy Jonathan Rhys Meyers will shortly be stepping into the role for Sky Living/NBC’s forthcoming new adaptation of Dracula.
From Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel we have Spike (James Marsters), Angel (David Boreanaz) and Darla (Julie Benz). Angel had an on/off relationship with Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar) and the slayer obviously had a thing for vampires, when she wasn’t killing them, because she later ended up sleeping with Spike. We can’t say we fault her choice in men in regards to Angel or Spike though Riley (Marc Blucas) was a dubious choice.
From HBO’s True Blood we have picked Viking prince Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard), Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and Pam (Kristin Bauer). Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) had both Bill and Eric, hot werewolf Alcide (Joe Maganiello) and shape-shifter Sam (Sam Trammell) all chasing her for her affections. One person who wasn’t a fan of Sookie’s was Pam who really can’t understand why all the men of Bon Temps were so keen to impress the waitress. In fact Pam has a very, very low opinion of Sookie.
From The CW’s hit The Vampire Diaries we have picked four vampires; Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder), his brother Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley), original vampire Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Caroline Forbes (Candice Accola). Stefan and Damon were turned into vampires in 1864 by Katherine (Nina Dobrev) who just happens to be the spitting image of Stefan’s on/off girlfriend Elena who is best friends with Caroline. The relationships on The Vampire Diaries are so complicated and inter-connected you need a degree in astrophysics to understand them!
Finally we round off our poll with Twilight’s Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson).
Voting is really simple! The poll is located on the right side of our website above the ‘Recent Stories’ box. Just select your choice and click vote. We’re being extra generous in this poll and allowing you to pick two vampires to vote for.
