I’m on my third day off in a row!! Unfortunately it’s back to work tomorrow… BOOOOO!!
Days off recently haven’t really been days off though. Loads of hospital appointments to keep and running around after kids and worrying about money doesn’t add up to much relaxation or fun.
So today I decided to get the kids out the door, nip to Tesco and then do absolutely nothing but have a little relaxation and fun.
Fun… mmmm….. what to do for fun.
Well for a start I’m catching up on my downloads. They’ve been a bit thin on the ground since Xmas because of all the stupid mid season breaks and game breaks the Americans seem to have but they are now getting back on track and we are heading well into the second half of various seasons and in fact have said fairwell to an old favourite.
Chuck, you will be missed.
So! sat here in front of the computer with downloads playing on the TV and milky coffee in hand.
What to blog about?
Fed up with being on a downer so I am going to gush.
I was talking to Murron last night about various favourite TV and movie characters and it occurred to me that a lot of favourite characters, old and new, happen to be vampires!
So I sat and compiled a list and was surprised to come up with 15 characters.
So here, along with some luscious pictures, are my 15 favourite vampire characters.
At number 15 we have Lestat, played by Tom Cruise in Interview with a Vampire.
I’m not a huge Tom Cruise fan but Lestat was chillingly atractive.
At number 14 we have David, played by Keifer Sutherland in The Lost Boys.
One of my favourite movies as a teenager and still one of my favourites today.
At number 13 we have Severen, played by Bill Paxton in Near Dark.
An awesome vampire movie that seems to have been sadly forgotten about.
At number 12 we have Jasper, played by Jackson Rathbone in The Twilight Movies.
Murron’s favourite vampire and I will agree, she has good taste.
At number 11 we have Jerry Dandridge, played by Chris Sarandon in the original Fright Night.
I haven’t seen the remake yet but the original Jerry Dandridge gave me the chills when he seduced Amy on the dance floor.
At number 10 we have Spike, played by James Marsters in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel.
Spike was just one of the coolest vampires ever and I met him a couple of times.
At number 9 we have Dwayne, played by Billy Wirth in The Lost Boys.
Another Lost Boy and one that was sadly under used in the movie and who came to an awesome end.
Death by Stereo!!
At number 8 we have the lovely Louis, played by Brad Pitt in Interview with a Vampire.
Could Brad Pitt really be any hotter?
At number 7 we have Stefan Salvatore, played by Paul Wesley in The Vampire Diaries.
My current favourite Vampire show. He’s cute but there’s someone hotter.
At number 6 we have Eric Northman, play by Alexander Skarsgard in True Blood.
This show is just full of good looking men, unfortunately the hottest one is a werewolf so he can’t make it onto this list.
At number 5 we have Bill Compton, played by Stephen Moyer also in True Blood.
It was a close run thing between number 6 and number 5 but Stephen just pipped it.
At number 4 we have Mick St. John, played by Alex O’Loughlin in Moonlight.
Alex OOOOOO’Loughlin. What more do I need to say?
At number 3 we have Angel, played by David Boreanaz in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel.
The first time we saw David as Angel he turned me into jelly.
At number 2 we have Angelus, played by David Boreanaz in buffy the Vampire slayer and angel.
I know, I know. Angel and Angelus are the same person BUT they are definately not the same character.
The first time we saw David as Angelus he turned me into complete mush.
David had a real knack to switching from one to the other effortlessly and I have to say that the bad boy, Angelus, always did a little bit more for me than Angel did.
And for those who read my blog regularly it will come as no surprise that my number 1 Vampire is Damon Salvatore, played by Ian Somerhalder in The Vampire Diaries.
OMG, words cannot express what this character does to me. Angel and Angelus all wrapped up into one.
Bad boy with a hidden heart of gold. Dark haired, chiselled torso, great style, AMAZING eyes and a really naughty smile.
A great excuse to get more pictures of him onto my blog.
OH OH!! How could I forget!!
I must finish this blog with an honorary addition.
A character that was sadly cut very short in it’s tracks by the untimely death of the actor portraying him.
Julian Luna, played by the sadly missed Mark Frankel in Kindred: the embraced.
Just look at those eyes.
The show only made it to 8 episodes but it was a show that was way ahead of it’s time.
Looking at the vampire interest that has followed it from Buffy to Angel and through to Twilight, it was a show that was destined to do extremely well. Unfortunately it’s lead was irreplaceable after his death at the age of just 34.
There you have it, 16 vampires. They just keep getting hotter and hotter although they are going to have to go a long way to get any hotter than Damon Salvatore!
