Who's Your Favorite Vampire? - Megan Crane

With Twilight raking it in at the box office, I thought it might be fun to consider the hottest vampires. I mean onscreen, though there are no shortage of vampire lovelies in books. JR Ward's entire Brotherhood comes to mind. As does Michelle Rowen's delectable Thierry from the Immortality Bites series (which I have actually read in its pre-published entirety-- yes, I am bragging.) But I can't show you pictures of those vampires, so let's stick to the screen.

There's Julian Luna from Kindred: the Embraced, a show involving C. Thomas Howell (yes, seriously) that apparently only I ever watched.

Mick St. John from the prematurely cancelled Moonlight:

The yummy Vampire Bill from HBO's True Blood (with which I am obsessed, and no, I have yet to watch the last two episodes--I'm saving them as a treat for when I submit my latest manuscript):

To say nothing of his fellow vamp Eric:

That's a lot of fang. But none of them are my true vampire love, Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and then later his own show. Yeah, I know a lot of people love Captain Peroxide, aka Spike. I don't get that. For me, it's always been about Angel.

Sweet, broody, delicious Angel.

What about you? Who's your favorite bloodsucking fiend? Who am I forgetting?

I haven't watched any of the TV shows vampires don't do it for me somehow I haven't read any vampire books either I know don't throw things at me LOL.
I am determined to read some just gotta decide on the right ones for me and I probably will be hooked.

Gerard Butler as Dracula is my first, but loved to watch Buffy, so Angel and Spike are up there, now comes Bill from True blood, so many vamps to love.

I must be the one romance reader who avoids vampires because, well, plain and simple reason, they scare me. :) But I rather liked the vampires in the most loved episode of the X-Files, Bad Blood, where Mulder was clueless that the pizza delivery kid was the vampire. ;)

Hmm...I would have to say, the guy in Dark Shadows, that old tv series. Can't remember who played him now but, he was hot! I haven't had the pleasure to watch Angel or Twilight yet. Can't wait to see Twilight!
