You will find both sexy men vampires and sexy women vampires.

10. Edward Cullen

Edward Cullen is the main character in the Twilight series. For some reason many people find his vampire character extremely sexy looking. I think his face his to white but most women and girls think he is so adorable. Majority rules so the Edward Cullen character on Twilight gets the 10th spot on the top 10 hot vampires list.

9. Spike- Buffy the Vampire Slayer

James Marsters played the role of the vampire Spike on the popular television show Buffy the Vampire Slayer. His character was pretty handsome to begin with, but once he morphed into a vampire he looked totally awesome. I’m straight, but if I was going to be a vampire I would like to look like Spike did in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

8. Solina- Dracula 2000

The female vampire Solina was played by the very beautiful Jennifer Esposito. If I had to get bit by a vampire than I would choose the Solina character. How many times have you been able to use the term MILF Vampire in a sentence. In this instance it is a very applicable term because Jennifer Esposito made a very hot vampire.

7. Akasha- Queen of the Damned

The Queen of the Damned was a vampire film released in 2002 and was based on the Anne Rice book series The Vampire Chronicles. Akasha was played by Aaliyah. Aaliyah made for a super sexy and hot vampire. Shortly after Aaliyah acted in this vampire flick she died tragically in an airplane crash after filming a music video. She was only 22 when she died.

6. David- The Lost Boys

David the vampire was played by Kiefer Sutherland in the popular 80’s movie The Lost Boys. If Kiefer Sutherland was to play a vampire today it would not be pretty; however when Kiefer Sutherland was younger in this movie he made a very hot male vampire. Some people were not a fan of this movie but it was extremely popular with most of the people that seen it. The Lost Boys is definitely one of those must see movies for vampire fans. The best line in the entire movie was the very last line spoken at the end by the old guy. Regardless of what you think of that movie you have got to love the ending.

5. Mick St. John- Moonlight

Alex O'Loughlin played the role of Mick St. John in the vampire movie Moonlight. Mick St. John was a private investigator who got turned into a vampire. You may better know Alex O'Loughlin for his role on the new version of Hawaii Five-O.

4. Damon Salvatore- The Vampire Diaries

The Damon Salvatore vampire character in the Vampire Diaries was one of the hottest vampires of all time. If I was a girl and Damon asked me out on a date I would say yes, even if I knew he was a vampire. You probably recognize this actor from the television show "Lost".

3. Lestat de Lioncourt- Interview With the Vampire

No hot vampire list could ever be complete without mentioning the Lestat de Lioncourt character played by no other than Tom Cruise. Tom Cruise made for a very gorgeous and hunky vampire throughout the entire film. Even in Toms older age now he is still gorgeous, but when he was younger and played in this movie he made for a very tasty looking vampire. Tom Cruise has aged awesomely, but he may have been at his best looking in this movie. Imagine if his Top Gun character could have been a Vampire, Now that would be funny to see.

2. Brad Pitt- Interview with the Vampire

In the same movie that had hunky and gorgeous Tom Cruise playing a sexy male vampire there was also the Brad Pitt character portraying another hunky Vampire. How can you go wrong with 2 studs like Cruise and Pitt in a vampire movie? Even if you are straight and hate vampires this is a good film to watch with your wife because she will be ready to get romantic after this movie is done with. Of course she may just want to watch it again and keep fantasizing in her head.

1. Johnny Depp – Dark Shadows

The most character driven actor of our time is Johnny Depp. His soon to be released movie Dark Shadows has him starring as a vampire. The only role Johnny Depp has ever played in where he did not look gorgeous was his balding character in the movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Other than that movie Johnny Depp always looks stunningly gorgeous. I bet even Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt are jealous of his good looks.  Male super models probably see him in the movies and wish they could look as good as he does.

In the movie Dark Shadows the main character is a vampire named Barnabas Collins, which is played by Johnny Depp. The movie is based on the old television show Dark Shadows which played on television from 1966-1971. The original actor who played Barnabas Collins was Jonathan Frid. Johnny Depp obviously makes for a much better Barnabas Collins character.

Dark Shadows starring Johnny Depp will be released into movie theatres on May 11th, 2012. Expect this to be another blockbuster film that stars Johnny Depp. Once again Johnny Depp has teamed up with movie director and Depp’s close personal friend Tim Burton for the production of this film. Johnny Depp consistently makes great movies and always gives his characters humorous traits such as his Captain Jack Sparrow character in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. You can expect Johnny Depp will once again bring humorous and unique traits to his starring role as a vampire in this movie. It would be really awesome if he did the Pirate walk while dressed as a vampire, but I don’t think we will get that lucky.
