Movie And Tv Vampires
© Sarah Masson 2011
There have been plenty of amazing Vampires created but we all have our favourites. Some have only been written about and are yet to be turned into movie characters but I'm sure they will be soon. It's awesome to see these characters come to life. There's been a huge craze for vampires in recent times and I will admit that I have enjoyed reading the stories. From the recent Twilight Saga to the Vampire Academy Series, there are plenty of different types of vampire characters to enjoy. I am going to start with my very favourite movie vampire created by Anne Rice, the one and only....
Louis (Brad Pitt) from Interview With The Vampire -
Louis is my very favourite out of all of the vampires that I have come across so far. He is not like the others, he has a kind heart and doesn't get satisfaction from harming others. It also doesn't hurt that he is GORGEOUS!!! Brad Pitt can even pull off being a good looking vampire so I'm pretty certain he could be anything and still be lovable. Louis starts off feeding on rats and small animals so he doesn't have to feed from humans. He still has human feelings and emotions and is still capable of love. Brad Pitt is amazing as Louis, he makes him a very believable and real character.
Lestat (Tom Cruise) also from Interview With The Vampire -
Now, I'm usually not a huge fan of Tom Cruise but I think his role as Lestat is by far one of his best. Lestat is the complete opposite to the lovely Louis. Lestat is a mean and evil vampire and enjoys feeding from humans. He is not considerate towards Louis or anyone else for that matter but he is a very unique and intriguing character. Tom cruise gives us a fantastic perfomance in one of my favourite movies.
Edward Cullen from Twilight -
Every girls dream right here! Apart from the whole not being alive thing..oh and being a vampire. This is the favourite for a whole lot of the ladies out there. He's gorgeous, he's faithful to Bella, he looks after her and loves her so he's the perfect vampire.
Eric Northman from True Blood -
Another of the meaner vampires but I still adore him. Although he can be mean there's also a softer side to him. He's very good looking, tall and tough, another one for the ladies to love. He speaks with authority and if vampires were real I wouldn't want to mess with him!!
Stefan & Damon Salvatore from The Vampire Diaries -
Two gorgeous looking brothers. Stefan is the charming vampire brother while Damon is the trouble maker. They are both lovable in their own ways. Damon comes across as mean but I think deep down he's a bit of a softy at heart.
Selene from The Underworld Movies -
I thought it was about time for some girl power!! Had to have at least one female vampire kicking butt and that is just what Selene does. Selene is played by Kate Beckinsale as a tough vampire warrior. These movies are awesome, especially if you like lots of action.
