The sexiest Vampires in pop culture

All the new Vampyre projects continue to grab the media's attention. The Montreal Gazette has been inspired to rate their choices for the sexiest Vampires. Not surprisingly, our Moonlight boys Mick St John ( Alex O'Loughlin ) and Josef Kostan ( Jason Dohring ) are on the list!

Being a vamp girl for as long as I can remember, I have my own favorites. Lemme just tell ya, Mick and Josef are at the top for me.... right next to Louis ( who has been #1 for years ) from Anne Rice's Interview With The Vampire. I know that most people are in love with Lestat. While I adore him too, Louis is my vamp. Not just because he was played by Brad Pitt in the film. *grin* I'm sure a lot of it has to do with him being a Louisiana plantation/New Orleans character. Spike ( James Marsters ) from Buffy the Vampire Slayer also ranks high for me. I always liked him way better than Angel. As for the ladies, Miriam ( Catherine Deneuve ) from The Hunger, Coraline ( Shannyn Sossamon ) and Lola ( Holly Valance ) from Moonlight. Yes.... I like the "bad" girls.

Who is on your list?

Vamping it up: The sexiest vampires in pop culture
Canada : The Montreal Gazette

With Stephenie Meyer's vampire romance Breaking Dawn hitting bookshelves, and a film based on her book Twilight slated for a December release, we look at the sexiest vampires in pop culture history - from Bram Stoker's Dracula and Anne Rice's Lestat to Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Bella Swan, the teen heroine from Meyer's series, is far from the first character to have her heart flutter over a partner who lacks a heartbeat:

The Vamp: Mick St. John (Alex O'Loughlin) and Josef Kostan (Jason Dohring), Moonlight (TV series, 2007-08)

Vampilicious qualities: When Mick St. John was bitten by his vampiric bride, Coraline, years ago, he was both disgusted and heartbroken. Instead of choosing to simply feed off of human beings, St. John utilizes his now acute vampire senses to help the living by becoming a private investigator. His closest friend and fellow vampire, Josef, helps him find alternate feeding sources along the way, and St. John eventually falls in love with a mortal named Beth - a beautiful, ambitious reporter who has been covering a string of unusual murders. Moonlight's vampires have sex appeal because the show portrays them as modern day vamps caught between two worlds.

Fang factor: 3 out of 5

Well for me it was Lestat first, then Louis, but ever since I set eyes on sexy Mick St. John (Alex O’Loughlin), he's absolutely “Numero 1” on my list and of course followed by Jason Dohring. VSRRR!!

Let's see I too love Louis and I loved him before he was Brad so that was just icing on the vampire cake. As for more I'm not putting them in any particular order just the way they pop into my brain.

Spike, Angel, Dru, Darla, Sunday, Harmony, Mick, Josef, Alice and now my brain has gone blank so I'm going to head down to my dungeon where I'll hopefully have vampy dreams after all I'm part vampire myself since I hate the sun and it hates me right back.
