Vote! Sexiest blood suckers

Last updated on: August 18, 2009

They're super strong, don't sleep, and suck blood to survive. Yup, we're talking vampires, the undead who're back stronger than ever thanks to Stephanie Meyer's addictive vampire book series which are being made into films even as you read this.

 

So what's so appealing about the undead? Well, it's the actors playing them.

 

We take a look at the sexiest vampires through and ages. And while you're clicking through, don't forget to vote for the hottest blood sucker!

 

We begin with the current heartthrob of teens and young women the world over, Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen.

 

Fans all over have gone gaga over Meyer's hunk from the book, Twilight. So it was just a matter of time really that whoever gets to play Edward in the movie would be just as popular.

 

Now the 23-year-old English actor/part musician, who was recently crowned the World's Sexiest Man Alive, cannot move around freely without being mobbed.

Stephen Moyer as Bill Compton

This brooding vampire of True Blood, a television drama series currently on HBO, is next on the list.

Piercing dark eyes with a temper to match coupled with a tenderness reserved only for Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), a telepathic waitress at a Louisiana bar, makes us a fan of this 'good' vampire and the show which is created and produced by Alan Ball.

Kate Beckinsale as Selene

What she lacks in size, Kate more than make up with speed and deadly accuracy in the Underworld series. Plus, those deadly blue eyes are pretty hypnotic.

David Boreanaz as Angel

He first appeared in Buffy the Vampire Slayer as a vampire cursed with a soul. The constant battle between his good and bad side kept us riveted so much so that he became too big for the show thus spawning a new show, Angel.

Salma Hayek as Santanico Pandemonium

A certain curvaceous vampire who has a certain way with a snake is why we remember this 1996 movie From Dusk Till Dawn.

James Marsters as Spike

Unlike Angel, Spike, considered a 'breakout character' on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, doesn't struggle too hard to suppress his bad side. Some even find his Brit accent a turn on.

Stuart Townsend as Lestat

The 36-year-old overshadowed late singer Aaliya in the movie Queen of the Damned. His sexy rock star edginess made the girls (and some boys) swoon.

Tom Cruise as Lestat

Before Stuart Townsend's Queen of the Damned there was Tom Cruise's Interview With The Vampire. His Lestat in the film version of Anne Rice's book was pretty convincing as a vampire.

Brad Pitt as Louis

Here's proof that this hunk is irresistible. Even vampires are not immune to his charms. At least that's another reason besides loneliness that made Tom Cruise's Lestat take a bite out of Loius, thus binding him to his side forever in the movie, Interview With The Vampire.

Antonio Banderas as Armand

In Anne Rice's book series -- The Vampire Chronicles -- Armand is described as a beautiful small boy with reddish curls, soft brown eyes and slender fingers. The film version however shows a much manlier and smouldering Armand. We like.
