60 Sexiest Vampires

There are a lot of things sexy about vampires, and a lot of sexy men and women portraying them (now more than ever), but the sexiest vampires are more than just a pretty face. These characters (as portrayed by these fabulous actors and actresses) all have some charismatic combination of beauty, magnetism, and charm that make their performances in these roles stand out in our memories, so here it is, my pick of the 60 sexiest of these fantastic bad boys and girls to grace the big and small screens.

Note: I was going to make this list with characters, but IMDB is short on pictures so I decided to organize the list by the actors that portray them, even so, I am sorry to say there are still a few missing pictures.
