They can bite me anytime.

1. Alex O'Loughlin

Actor | Hawaii Five-0

The Australian actor Alex O'Loughlin was born in August 1976.

Alex started out his film career in 2004, when he starred in Oyster Farmer (2004) as Jack Flange. The following year, he returned to the big screen as Michael Carter in Feed (2005), a movie that he also co-produced and helped write. Also ...

"Moonlight" was cancelled wayyyyy too early! I was just getting into it, too. Mick St. John was a great character. He was the best TV vampire I had seen in a long time. I loved the makeup that Alex had when he would "vamp out" -- the rims around the eyes looked so good. In my opinion, he was the best cast vampire on that show. Alex is really gorgeous. My friend Filip looks so much like him... haha. He tells people that they are related even though Alex is from Australia and Filip is from Norway.

2. Alexander Skarsgård

Actor | True Blood

Alexander Johan Hjalmar Skarsgård was born in Stockholm, Sweden and is the eldest son of famed actor Stellan Skarsgård. Among his siblings are actors Gustaf Skarsgård, Bill Skarsgård, and Valter Skarsgård. For most of his formative years, his father was an acclaimed actor in Europe but had not yet ...

Eric Northman is soooo hot on "True Blood." He may look a little bit weird with really short hair but he still looks pretty good. I prefer him with long blonde hair myself. Alexander is really snygg.

3. Cameron Bright

Actor | Thank You for Smoking

Cameron was born in Victoria, British Columbia, on Jan 26, 1993. He resides in Vancouver, British Columbia. At the age of 6, he was filming his first commercial. In 2002, at only 9 years of age, he worked in his first lead role in the movie Godsend (2004), alongside Academy award-winner Robert De ...

When I found out that Alec Volturi was turned at such a young age, I was shocked. Cameron looks so great as Alec but he makes it hard to believe that Alec was turned at only 13 or 14 years old. He looks so mature in the role. Either way, I would love to have him look at me with those sexy red eyes.

4. Chris Massoglia

Actor | Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant

Chris Massoglia started acting at age 10. Breaking into the film industry at a young age from the Midwest, Chris has worked with some of Hollywood's finest actors and Academy Award winners. Coming off an acting hiatus Chris' newest film Because of Gracia finds him playing the love interest of ...

Darren Shan might be only a half-vampire but Chris is all sexy! He has the perfect look for a vampire, too. He has those intense eyes that draw you in and that boyish charm that makes him irresistible. I would love to see him with fangs in another vampire role. Reading his background, it must have really drove his family nuts to learn he was going to play a vampire. Well done! He should play one again. He doesn't need to listen to his parents forever. LOL

5. David Gunn

Actor | Vampire Journals

David Gunn was born on March 2, 1972 in Gresham, Oregon, USA. He is an actor, known for Vampire Journals (1997), The Convent (2000) and Full Moon Fright Night (2002).

When I first saw a trailer for the movie "Vampire Journals," I was instantly attracted to the young vampire I saw. I found out the character's name was Zachary and, after reading a character bio, I was hooked. A vampire with a conscience? That's rare. Seeing David in the role, however, really convinced me that it could be done. David looked really hot as Zachary. His hair, his eyes, his face... everything looked so good. His costumes and makeup were great, too. They, as well as Zachary's personality, inspired one of my stories and I used several pics from the movie in it. Even today, David is still quite handsome.

6. Dom Hetrakul

Actor | Bangkok Dangerous

Dom Hetrakul is an actor, known for Bangkok Dangerous (2008), The Marine 2 (2009) and Siamese Outlaws (2004).

Niran is so evil. Wow. But Dom is so hot! I have seen some clips from "Vampires: The Turning" and they look kind of cheesy. The blood looks really fake. Despite this, Dom looks just super sexy. The contact lenses he wears are amazing. It just goes to show how playing a vampire makes anyone really hot, doesn't it? LOL

7. Ethan Hawke

Actor | Training Day

Ethan Green Hawke was born on November 6, 1970 in Austin, Texas, to Leslie Carole (Green), a charity worker, and James Steven Hawke, an insurance actuary. His parents were students at the University of Texas at the time but divorced when Ethan was 5 years old. His mother raised him alone for the ...

The vampires in "Daybreakers" may look a bit weird but Ethan as Edward... not bad at all. ;) His intense yellow eyes equal that of another famous vampire named Edward. Unlike Mr. Cullen, Ethan's Edward is not very nice. And that's okay. Not every vampire has to be a nice guy. Hahaha.

8. Gerard Butler

Actor | The Phantom of the Opera

Gerard James Butler was born in Paisley, Scotland, to Margaret and Edward Butler, a bookmaker. His family is of Irish origin. Gerard spent some of his very early childhood in Montreal, Quebec, but was mostly raised, along with his older brother and sister, in his hometown of Paisley. His parents ...

When I saw "Dracula 2000" for the first time, I immediately fell fast for Gerard. The scene on the plane where Dracula bites Solina and, when he lifts his head to confront Marcus, the one trail of blood runs down his lip nice and slow... ohhhhhhhhhhhh... it turned me on so badly. I watch that clip on youtube and it still does it to me, no matter how many times I watch it. So orgasmic.

9. Howie Dorough

Soundtrack | The Princess Diaries

Howard Dwaine "Howie D" Dorough was born in Orlando, Florida, as the fifth and youngest child of Paula Flores and Hoke Dwaine Dorough. His older siblings include Pollyanna, who is herself an aspiring singer, and Caroline Dorough-Cochran, who unfortunately passed away from Lupus at the age of 38 in ...

The video for "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)" is a classic. I first saw that video when I was about 9 or 10. Howie D as Dracula? Yes please!!! I know that, in the video for "Straight Through My Heart," he and the other Backstreet Boys play vampires (and he looks nice with red eyes) but he looks the most sexy as Dracula. Everything about him worked in that video. He turned me onto vampires... and possibly caused my sexual awakening in the process!! Thank you Howie D!

10. Ian Somerhalder

Actor | The Vampire Diaries

Ian Somerhalder was born and raised in the small southern town of Covington, Louisiana. His mother, Edna (née Israel), is a massage therapist, and his father, Robert Somerhalder, is a building contractor. He has Cajun (French), English, and Scots-Irish ancestry. Boating, swimming, fishing and ...

As a character, Damon Salvatore is such a bad boy and that is really sexy. Sometimes, I feel it can be a bit too overpowering but Ian is such a great actor -- and so hot -- that I don't even notice it.

11. Jamie Campbell Bower

Actor | Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Jamie Campbell Bower was born in London, England, to Anne Elizabeth (Roseberry), a music manager, and David Bower, who works for Gibson Guitar Co. His 4 times maternal great-grandfather was Sir John Campbell, the 7th Baronet of Ardnamurchan and Airds.

Jamie is also the lead singer in a band called "...

Caius!!! Wow! I love looking at pictures of that character. The costumes that Jamie wears in "New Moon" are so amazing. I am not a big fan of the hair but oh well. Jamie should definitely play vampires more often, maybe one with fangs next time (LOL). He has that darkness to him that makes him so attractive. Purrrrrr....

12. Johnny Depp

Actor | Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Johnny Depp is perhaps one of the most versatile actors of his day and age in Hollywood.

He was born John Christopher Depp II in Owensboro, Kentucky, on June 9, 1963, to Betty Sue (Wells), who worked as a waitress, and John Christopher Depp, a civil engineer.

Depp was raised in Florida. He dropped ...

You know how they say you have to leave the best for last. Well, I left the best-looking for last. I was editing this list and I remembered something: "Johnny's going to play Barnabas in the Dark Shadows movie!" So naturally he belongs on here!!! Johnny is going to be so hot as a vampire. I always knew he should play one and now he will be. Yay!!!

13. Jonathan Keltz

Actor | Entourage

Jonathan Lippert Keltz was born in New York City, to Karin Lippert, who worked in public relations, and Martin Keltz, the co-founder and President of Scholastic Productions. He remained in the city through pre-school before moving upstate to Woodstock, New York, where he attended Poughkeepsie Day ...

Anyone who follows Jonathan's work is probably wondering why I have him on here. He was on "Degrassi" in the episodes when the school put on a production of "Castle Dracula." His character, Nate, was the one playing Dracula. And oh wow!!! He looked so good!! The fangs may have been fake but he nailed the accent, rocked the costume and possessed the seductiveness of the Count. I used pics from that episode in a story. Thanks Jonathan!

14. Kyle Schmid

Actor | Six

Born in August 1984 in Ontario, Canada, Kyle Schmid has been acting for a majority of his life. Commercials and early modeling gigs turned into film auditions, and he shortly landed a small appearance in the Canadian film Virus (1996). After a small break, he landed two hits in the made for ...

Ohhhh Henry Fitzroy! What a babe! Kyle is just super hot -- that goes without saying. But as Henry... his hotness goes through the stratosphere. With his long wavy hair, his sexy body, his gorgeous face... mmmmm. Whenever Henry shows his unique vampire appearance of black scleral eyes and a double set of fangs, wow! I love it! Those eyes are so intense. And those fangs! It must have taken forever to make them but they look amazing! Wowweeeee!!!

15. Matt Lanter

Actor | Disaster Movie

Matthew Mackendree Lanter was born April 1, 1983 in Massillon, Stark County, Ohio, to Jana Kay (Wincek) and Joseph Hayes Lanter. He has a sister, Kara. When he was eight years old, he moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where his father's family is from. His recent ancestry includes Polish, English, ...

"Vampires Suck" looks like a funny movie. Matt as Edward... mmmm. He has that boyish charm that makes him irresistible. He is also the complete opposite of Robert Pattinson making him the obvious choice to play a character in a parody.

16. Matthew Newton

Writer | From Nowhere

Since graduating from the National Institute Of Dramatic Art in 1998 he has played lead roles in film, television and on stage. His feature films include 'Looking For Alibrandi', 'My Mother Frank', 'The Bet', 'Bitter and Twisted', 'Blurred', 'The Great Raid' and 'Queen Of The Damned'. He has worked...

When I saw Antonio Banderas as Armand in "Interview With the Vampire," I was not really convinced. Then I saw Matthew in "Queen of the Damned." I was like "oooohhhh hellooooo there" -- he was perfect. His skin looked like porcelain. His hair was amazing. I know that Matthew is a bit of a bad boy off-screen (come on, he allegedly beat his ex-girlfriend... not nice! :O) but he is really hot on screen! Mmmmmm... another Australian hottie playing a vampire.

17. Michael Easton

Actor | One Life to Live

Born in Long Beach, California, Michael was raised and educated in both the US and Ireland - the homeland of his parents - and double majored in English and History at UCLA. He's journeyed through Europe, parts of Africa and India, supporting himself as a bartender and in various construction jobs....

Caleb Morley was a badass. No question. Michael brought his sexy charm and his dark vibe to the character, as well as to the characters of Father Michael and Stephen Clay. I thought it was a bit weird how sometimes he would have red eyes, sometimes he would have fangs, but never together. Either way, he looked hot.

18. Mike Lobel

Actor | Suck

Michael Ryan "Mike" Lobel (born March 7, 1984) is a Canadian actor.

Born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, he is the oldest of three siblings.

At a young age he began showing interest in music and visual arts which drew him to Etobicoke School of the Arts. He attended ESA from 1998 to 2003, first majoring...

I have not seen the movie "Suck" -- only trailers -- but I know that Mike is sexy because of his work on "Degrassi." He has those intense eyes and bad-boy vibe that makes him perfect for a vampire.

19. Pete Wentz

Soundtrack | Big Hero 6

Pete Wentz, the bassist and primary lyricist for the Chicago-based band Fall Out Boy, was born Peter Lewis Kingston Wentz III in Wilmette, Illinois. He is the son of Dale (Lewis), a high school admissions counselor, and Pete Wentz, an attorney. His grandfather, Arthur Winston Lewis, served as U.S. ...

Who does not love the video for "A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More Touch Me" by Fall Out Boy? It is so original. Pete looks so sexy as a vampire. I love the scene with the girl. "Take the bite... take the bite..." That should have been Ashlee Simpson in that role because Pete is married to her... haha. William Beckett also looked hot in that video, too. Yes everyone! That's William Beckett! (Most people think that's Jack White but it's not...haha.)

20. Robert Pattinson

Actor | Twilight

Robert Douglas Thomas Pattinson was born May 13, 1986 in London, England, to Richard Pattinson, a car dealer importing vintage cars, and Clare Pattinson (née Charlton), who worked as a booker at a model agency. He grew up in Barnes, southwest London with two older sisters and attended Tower House ...

Edward Cullen... wow. What can I say about him? Usually, I don't go for fangless vampires. With Robert's bone structure and facial features, however, he makes it really hot to go fangless.

21. Rudolf Martin

Actor | Ford v Ferrari

Born and raised in West Berlin, Rudolf moved with his family from Berlin to Paris to Italy, arriving in the United States a short time after his high school graduation from the Universite de Paris. While studying at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute, he landed his first professional role in the ...

Rudolf has played a vampire twice in his career but my favourite is him as Dracula on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." Most of the vampires on that show look so weird but the makeup artists on that show decided to make Dracula actually look good. His hair looked really sexy and his costumes were amazing. He was so convincing, especially with that German accent. Mmmmm... danke Rudolf!

22. Stephen Dorff

Actor | Blade

Stephen Dorff was born in Atlanta, Georgia, to Nancy and Steve Dorff, a composer. Chosen from over 2000 young men from around the world, he auditioned and won the coveted role of "PK" in John G. Avildsen's The Power of One (1992) in 1992, starring opposite Morgan Freeman, John Gielgud and Fay ...

Deacon Frost in "Blade" is not the kind of vampire you would want to mess around with... unless you're a girl who is willing to be bitten by him. I have seen a couple of scenes in that movie and I love when his eyes go completely red. Soooo sexy!!! Stephen looks really hot!

23. Stephen Moyer

Actor | True Blood

Stephen Moyer's passion for acting began in local theatre in Brentwood & Chelmsford, Essex where he also made a name for himself with his own theatre company "The Reject Society". He then trained at LAMDA and began his professional acting career on stage, including 2 years with the RSC ("Romeo & ...

Bill Compton is a vampire with a soul. The way he loves Sookie is so pure and honest. It's no wonder that Stephen and Anna Paquin developed their own relationship and are now married -- their off-screen chemistry really helps their on-screen chemistry. I just love how Bill says Sookie's name with that Louisiana accent.

24. Stuart Townsend

Actor | The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

Stuart Townsend was born in 1972 in Howth, County Dublin, Ireland, to Lorna (Hogan), an Irish model, and Peter Townsend, an English professional golfer. Stuart was determined to be an actor and began his career by appearing in a number of student films, while attending the Gaiety School of Acting ...

"Queen of the Damned" may have been a bit of a corny movie but I loved Lestat in it. Stuart was positively amazing in the role. He looked super sexy. His makeup was just awesome -- everything I hoped a vampire would look like. The fangs were really interesting but still hot. In the opening when Lestat bites the guy and you see him with the blood on his lip and chin after waking up, I will be honest that, to me, it looks so real that it looked like real blood. Stuart was that convincing as a vampire.

25. Xavier Samuel

Actor | Love & Friendship

Xavier Samuel was born on December 10, 1983 in Hamilton, Victoria, Australia. He is an actor, known for Love & Friendship (2016), Fury (2014) and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010).

When I see pics of Riley from the "Twilight" movies, I notice how sexy Xavier looks with red eyes. They are so intense and he is just hot. What is with Australians and playing vampires? They all look so good.
