TV's Sexiest Vampires: 'True Blood,' Vampire Diaries,' 'Moonlight' & More!

Bill, Eric, True BloodOh, to be Sookie Stackhouse.

Simple waitress one day, object of affection for multiple supernatural beings the next -- it's a hard life she leads.

Alas, we can't all have multiple sexy vampires fawning over us. Instead we'll all have to make due with watching the new season of 'True Blood' when it premieres on HBO at 9PM Sunday night. In the meantime, and in honor of the Bill-Sookie-Eric love triangle, I've compiled a list of the sexiest vampires to ever grace TV screens.

Check out who made the cut after the jump, then weigh in on your favorite sexy vampires.

Eric, True BloodEric Northman, 'True Blood'
Played by Alexander Skarsgard
Just look at him. The vampire sheriff lays down the vampire law -- and stands up to authority too. Plus, he's probably Swedish royalty. A sexy blonde viking vampire with noble blood and a mean streak? Hells yeah.

Stefan, Damon, The Vampire DiariesDamon and Stefan Salvatore, 'The Vampire Diaries'
Played by Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley
Trying to choose between brothers Damon and Stefan Salvatore is kind of like picking your favorite child. So instead, I'm just picking both! (This is a thinly veiled excuse to post pictures of attractive people on the internet, not 'Sophie's Choice.')

Angel, Buffy the Vampire SlayerAngel, 'Angel'
Played by David Boreanaz
David Boreanaz did the "vampire with a soul" thing long before Paul Wesley brooded all over The CW. I really like that one episode where he was super hot and came to Buffy's rescue.

Pam, True BloodPam, 'True Blood'
Played by Kristin Bauer
Okay fine, I'll put some ladies on this list too. Eric might have Louisiana's District 5 on lock, but badass bitch Pam does what she wants. Funny one-liners + no filter + penchant for leather = you do the math.

Spike, Buffy the Vampire SlayerSpike, 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer'
Played by James Marsters
See how I got around having to choose between Angel and Spike? Cheating again. Deal with it. Let yourself be mesmerized by that bleached-blonde hair. If his fangs don't get you, those razor-sharp cheekbones will.

Being Human, MitchellMitchell, 'Being Human'
Played by Aidan Turner
Aidan Turner makes this list over Sam Witwer's version of the same character on 'Being Human''s American version simply because he has an Irish accent and the perfect scruff-to-hair-length ratio. Also he is going to be very famous in a few years after he stars in Peter Jackson's 'Hobbit' movie.

Katherine, The Vampire DiariesKatherine, 'The Vampire Diaries'
Played by Nina Dobrev
Look, I've recapped 'TVD' for two years, so clearly my list is biased. But I still think Nina's nuanced portrayal of the evil-but-not-totally-evil vampire who turned the Salvatore brothers is deserving of an Emmy. She makes the list over Caroline only because Caroline seems more like a wholesome girl-next-door type than a sexy vamp.

Luke Wilson, X-FilesSheriff Hartwell, 'The X-Files'
Played by Luke Wilson
I make the rules, and I say one-off guest spots totally count. That's why Wilson makes the list for his memorable role in 'Bad Blood,' an 'X-Files' episode that saw Mulder and Scully recall the same incident in very different ways.

Moonlight, Jason DohringJosef Kostan, 'Moonlight'
Played by Jason Dohring
Shouldn't all vampires, no matter how human-friendly, have a little evil streak in them? The mischievous, rich Josef was just so much more fun than the straight-laced Mick St. John, no matter how foxy Alex O'Loughlin is. Controversial choice, I know. But this is my list! And also I love 'Veronica Mars.'

Amber Benson, SupernaturalLenore, 'Supernatural'
Played by Amber Benson
Continuing in my quest to get as many 'Buffy' people on here as possible, how about the friendly vampire encountered by Sam and Dean during season 2, played by none other than Amber Benson (a.k.a. the late, lamented Tara)? Dark hair suits her.

So, who did I miss? Who do you think is the sexiest TV vampire?

Henry Fitzroy is definitely NOT sexy in my books, nor is Katherine/Angel/Stefan. My favs are Damon, Alex (from Tale Of A Vampire), Josef, Mick and Spike. Underworld's also a good source for vamps, although I think you're just doing TV versions.

I miss Henry Fitzroy aka Kyle Schmid - he definitely deserves to be on this list!

Mick St. John (Alex O'Loughlin ), definitely....! Josef (Jason Dohring) definitely was a scene stealer, but not sexier than O'Loughlin. Damon & Stefan don't hurt the eyes either...

You totally forgot the cast of Underworld!!!!

Kate Beckingsale oozed sexiness as the vampire Selene; Scott Speedman had sexy abs as Michael Corvin "the hybrid- lycan/ vampire cross breed", and Bill Nighy played the awesome powerful elder vampire, Viktor. An honourable mention goes to Michael Sheen, who played the lycan (werewolf), Lucien.

Whenever I picture an evil, fearful vampire, I imagine Bill Nighy playing the character best. I had secretly hoped he would have been cast as the character of 'Claus' in the Vampire Diaries!

Your list is totally uncomplete... Many names are missing.
Never heard about Henry Fitzroy and "Blood Ties" ?
You should. Not only popular American shows had awesome vampires.

Totally! I'm an American born and bred, so watching this show on Lifetime was how I discovered Huff's books! I was sooooo bummed when it didn't get renewed. I would've loved to see more! Kyle Schmid rocked as Henry FitzRoy!

Soni VampPhile is right. Among the sexiest (in my opinion he is the sexiest) there should be Henry Fitzroy played by Kyle Schmid
