In popular folklore, vampires were undead beings that often visited loved ones and caused mischief or deaths in the neighborhoods they inhabited when they were alive. They wore shrouds and were often described as bloated and of ruddy or dark countenance. In the 19th century, vampires were commonly portrayed as gaunt and pale.

Nowadays, they usually don't look so scary anymore. In fact, Hollywood's idea of modern vampires is often quite appealing.

Which of the following vampires of movie & TV has the best looks?

Bert,

Please add the character names under each option.

Unfortunately Pattinson will probably take this. My first thought was Sharon Tate.

The question reads better as Which of the following vampires of movie and TV is the most attractive?

You're right, she is not. And apparently Angelique is a witch, not a vampire. I remembered incorrectly.

I don't think you need two different actors who played one role in different movies (Lestat). I would drop Cruise as his casting was/is decisive.

FYC (in order of the ones I like most):
Miriam Blaylock - The Hunger
Mick St. John - Moonlight (TV)
Viago - What We Do in the Shadows
The Girl - A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night
Vlad - Dracula Untold
Mitchell - Being Human (UK)
Adam, Eve and Ava - Only Lovers Left Alive
Eleanor and Clara - Byzantium
Angelique - Dark Shadows
Princess Asa - Black Sunday
Jerry - Fright Night
Black Hat - Priest
Blade - Blade
Armand - Interview with the Vampire
Condesa Oskudar - Vampyros Lesbos
Lucy Westenra - Dracula (1992)
Marcilla/Carmilla - The Vampire Lovers
Klaus - The Vampire Diaries/The Originals

You could really do one list for men and one for women.

With this large list of names and the potential of far more inclusions, I'll suggest that two lists be made.  One for television and the other for movie vampires.

Sharon Tate.
Also I know there are a lot of suggestions so I'll just make one very decent. Gemma Arterton in Byzantium.

Hey rocky-o, great suggestions, but I'm having a hard time finding good pictures for Marc Warren and Rick Springfield. If you can suggest any, I'm more than happy to include them in the list.

hey leavey-2...glad you like the suggestions...

as far as pictures go, i would just recommend simple pictures of marc and rick off of imdb...or even the cover of the vhs or dvd...but i know you guys have to get them from specific places, so i'm not exactly sure where you guys have to look...jen seems to be good at those things...she may be willing to help...

I'm currently taking into consideration all your suggestions, and there are many! Therefore I would appreciate the board's view on the following 2 options:

a) keep one list and select the 35 best suggestions, alternating men/women

b) make two poll suggestions: 1) Most Gorgeous Male Vampire and 2) Most Gorgeous Female Vampire

Hi Dan, I received so many contributions that our fellow poll board members suggested to make 1 list for men and 1 list for women instead of one big list with men and women combined. I'm currently reworking the 2 lists. Everything should be ready by tomorrow:

Part 1 - Most Gorgeous Female Vampire: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls069892836/

Part 2 - Most Gorgeous Male Vampire: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls068515250/

No, not at all. I haven't finished yet but it took longer than I expected because I was looking for a good picture of Mac Warren and Rick Springfield on the internet and I ran out of time. I will continue tomorrow.

Thanks to both of you. I have uploaded the pictures so tomorrow they will probably appear on the website. The problem with pictures from the internet is often that they don't meet the minimum requirements of IMDb (min. 50 KB) which is often the case with images from older movies/series but with a little photoshopping I managed to fix this ;-)

He already has Lestat, just not Cruise, which was a highly criticized casting choice.

Dan, thanks for the images of Drusilla. I agree with you that the first one from your list is the best. I also prefer images where she's alone on the picture.

I will now ask for a repush of the poll.

Druscilla is now part of the poll.

By the way, I still think of "The Carpenters Druscilla Penny" when I hear the name.

I voted Luke Evans, but I know if they had made the rest of the Vampire Academy saga movies Danila Kozlovsky would be a Gorgerous Vampire.
