Who is your favorite fictional vampire?

This subject has been raised many times in this main forum- but it's been so many years since the last one, it's time to revisit and discuss with new members and old who may have new thoughts since they've last discussed.

Of all the stories that have been told- what fictional vampire stands out to you as a favorite? For me, the last more than a decade leads me back to Mick St. John of the TV series Moonlight as well as Julian from Kindred: The Embraced. Moonlight being a casualty of having been a new show in it's first season when a writer's strike was going on, and Kindred ending due to the untimely death of lead actor Mark Frankel. Without getting the full storylines I hoped to absorb with these shows- I am left to wonder what could have been. I still rewatch them pretty often. Maybe I should tackle them with some fan-fiction.

Tell us which fictional vampires have been your favorites and why!

Vincent Price's Dracula.....To me this man was the perfect vampire because of his voice and looks. It seemed like he never needed any real make up to do the roles.

I have never seen Vincent Price *as* Dracula. Vincent Price's Dracula is a documentary where Vincent narrates. Please let me know of a movie title where Vincent is Dracula himself- I'd like to check that out. I know he was in plenty horror films, but have never seen that.

Vincent Price never played Dracula but he did play a vampire named "Eramus" who narrates three tales of terror to a horror writer played by John Carradine in "The monster club", which was released in 1980.

Vincent Price is the bomb. Absolutely love him. Hail!

Of all the fictional vampires, I have got to choose Angelus/Angel from Buffy. I was in my teens when Buffy was released. So, it really made a huge impact on me. A Vampire, who is doomed to walk this blood-stained earth cursed with the inability to feel a second of pure joy or pleasure.

Basically, a bad-ass vampire with a conscience. I loved the way how the character Angelus/Angel was explored in the hit tv series. I can only hope for the reboot to be exploring this character more fully and with more substance.

Spike is another favourite of mine. He is the more contemporary bad boy Vampire, what with his light blonde hair and to-die-for features. He is witty, snarky and has a microchip in his head.

I cannot wait for the new take on this series!

My favorite vampire would probably be Brother Silus from the film, 'Perfect Creature'.

I like his ability to not abuse the power he has and to work towards the betterment of both species, humans and vampires. He comes across as wise and knowlegeable.

Admittedly, this is not a vampire film that would be for just anyone. I prefer a more plausable reason for vampires to exist, as opposed to the all too boring, "I've been bitten and I drank the blood of said bloodsucker."

I also like the vision of humans and vampires finding a way to co-habitate.

Power and Hotness are contributing factors for my favorite vampire character as well the cathartic experience of seeing a powerful woman not only in supernatural gifts but battle, even though she has poor aim she looks good laying down suppressive fire. I would have to agree with Pam from one of Charlaine Harris's books who says Kate Beckinsale is totally hot when watching "Underworld". So definitely Selene.

I really like Serana from Skyrim, and her whole vampy arc (which is really nostalgic of the Underworld series). I also really like Evangaline from Negima and a few others, like Jean Claude from the Anita Blake books.
I like the mix of elegance, magic, hidden humanity, and the hint of sadness- like perfume in an empty room.

I've also always been a fan of Louis from 'The Vampire Chronicles'. He's always been far more interesting to me than Lestat or anyone else in that series.

Louis is a very interesting vampire character. What if a person, made into a vampire, regrets being made into a vampire? All because, they don't want to take human life. Does the conscience remain? I do hope, at some point, someone explores this more in novel or film form. Hopefully, someone with the skill of Anne Rice.

My favorite would have to be armand from thw vampire chronicles. Anne rice is my all time favorite! But the way she portrays armand and how he grows as a "person" through out his book and tid bits through out the other books in the series drew me right in when i first started reading her books.

Alucard from Hellsing. It's an anime/manga. I loved reading the comics when I was a teen. I always loved the artwork that went into it. Along with how serious it could be while being funny at times.

You know... I think batman was a vampire in one universe? I used to read a lot of vampire comics from the library. But Hellsing I owned. Nothing like feeling the pages of a book.

I still have an affinity for Dracula. I remember watching the old 1931, Bela Lugosi version when I was a child. I still love the 1958 version, starring Christopher Lee, as well as the 1979 version, starring Frank Langella.

I have to say that my favorite Dracula film is Bram Stoker's Dracula from 1992, starring Gary Oldman, Anthony Hopkins, Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder.

The vampire genre more or less exists today in its current form because of Lestat. Without Lestat there would be no Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Angel. Without Angel there would be no Twilight or True Blood.

Sure, vampires pre-date Lestat. But it was Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles that brought vampire lore and storytelling more into the main stream. Interview with the Vampire was published in 1976 and The Vampire Lestat was published in 1985. It was her second book (and Lestat) that captured the imagination of readers and forever changed vampires in modern-day pop culture.

The Lost Boys was released in 1987, after the success of The Vampire Lestat. Queen of the Damned followed shortly thereafter in 1988.

Finally, I can tell you, without Lestat there would be no Vampire Rave.

I don't think it's possible for me to have a favorite. What I love about all the Anne Rice vampires is that she makes them flawed with their own issues. Yes they're powerful but they're pretty neurotic lol

I feel like Lestat did some character flip-flopping so it's difficult for me to choose him as a favorite. I'm not sure what his official deal is.

What I really enjoyed was Louis de Pointe du Lac and his twisting story filled with hypocrisy, grief, and flawed self righteousness. He is a good link between humanity and vampire.

Also, don't come for me, but I'm really a big fan of Blade lol

Anne Rice is to blame for my submission.

Maharet, the martriarch of vampire origination and the overseer of her descendants, was a creature I immediately gravitated to. An elder that preferred to keep to herself and to protect those she considered valuable members of her inner circle. The admiration for her loved ones was admirable.

Though she is more docile and in control than her sister Mekare, I would very much name her as a close second. A Gemini, twins of the same coin yet representing two different personalities and moral behaviors. Together they are simply perfect.

I have always loved Mick St. John of Moonlight. The inner conflicts of whom he is, verses whom he wants to be. I am biased tho, Alex O'Loughlin is from Hawaii and I tend to support the local boys that come from home. But the vampire I had a serious crush on was his friend Josef Kostan. He had a nerdy look with hidden mischievousness. He seemed to always help Mick when it counted. Not to mention being 400 years old never looked so damn good♡

Ahhh the good ole days...how I've missed them...

Favorite female is Selene portrayed by Kate Beckinsale in "Underworld" series in accord with PaganMoon.

Favorite male is 1979 British American film: "Dracula" portrayed by Frank Langella.

I think Dracula is one of those legends that go down as hard to determine if there is truth to it like legends of King Arthur or Atlantis. There is lore proving and disproving it. It's really up to you to decide veracity of it. I don't think he was real but do see the aristocracy and nobles of nights of yore definitely had occultist in their numbers who could very well equate with this popular character.

I think my favorite would have to be Louis from Interview With A Vampire. I love how he still maintains a level of humanity. It just sets him aside from the others.
I also enjoy Edward from the Twilight series... don't get me wrong... I hate the whole sparkly bit but I love how he also has that sense of humanity about him. The respect for human life. I enjoy how they make the concept realistic...

One of my very first exposures to Vampires was Barnabas Collins from the 60's show Dark Shadows. Jonathan Frid played him masterfully. To this day he is one of my favorite fictional Vampires.

Barnabas Collins was my first exposure to the vampire culture. I remember loving Dark Shadows.

Bela Lugosi's Dracula is also a favorite of mine.

Newer versions are of course the underworld series, Lost boys, and From Dusk till Dawn. I am a Quentin Tarantino fan. Who can forget Selma Hayek's Santanico Pandemonium's hypnotic, erotic dance?

In books I like the Anita Baker series. The first books anyway. Toward the end of the series it started to get a little too much for me. Jean-Claude is my favorite vampire of that series.

I love all of the vampire movies. The more the merrier!

There has been a lot that I liked but I will say maybe the master from the strain, a near unkillable ancient. Plus the vampires in the strain are monsters and have no romantic inclinations.

Personally, I've never really been much of a fan of most vampire films or books. Either they were too cliched or just a horrible plot all over, etcetera.
But the one that I have actually come to like, oddly enough, stars Luke Evans as "dracula", and despite the steep line of fiction, I actually found myself taking a liking to it, despite everything else.
But apart from that, I have only been one to study the lore, legend and science... never cared much for the other stuff.

My favorite fictional vampire would without a doubt have to be
Selene (Kate Beckinsale), from the "Underworld" franchise. In my opinion, Selene embodies all the traits of a

human who is made a vampire. These traits are in my opinion not supernatural related but biological instead, an

ancient virus maybe man made, or maybe not, which has survived, adapted and mutated down the centuries, giving

human beings exceptional powers. Also, the fact that Selene seems pretty much human and not a monster despite her

bloodlust and her being exposed to sunlight, are crucial for her being my choice as my favorite fictional vampire.

Because I'm such a romantic, I enjoy Christine Feehan's Dark Series Vampires.
The vampires in her novels are immortal, and they have to find their soulmate so that they do not become one of those rabid dark nasty vampires that they have to usually kill in every novel.
Each vampire comes with their own powers and skills, and their world is literally black n white, and loveless until they find their mate. Then they will do anything to protect their mate, and usually have to all the time. It's romantic, it's sexual, it's got family lines etc. I love them. :D

This is a very hard question to answer for me as I love a great many characters depicted on screen as well as in books. On screen my fav's are Julian Luna from Kindred: The Embraced; Mick St, John from Moonlight although Joseph Costin comes in a close second; Spike from Buffy and Matthew from Discovery of Witches. I like these characters particularly as they are all very strong characters with a fundamentally good moral code, however it doesn't tear them apart emotionally being a Vampire as they find a a way to balance the state of being without the hunger taking over their souls if you like.

Favourite vampires in books for me are Claude in the Anita Blake series and the Carpathian Vampires in the Christine Feehan novels mostly for the same reasons :-)

I would have to say my favorite would have to be Selene from Underworld. She doesn't take crap from anyone, but she also does what is right. She doesn't give in to her vampire tendencies or such. She didn't lose her humanity. Plus, she saved Michael.

Initially I read the J R Smith series when I was a kid (from secret vampire to black dawn), then I read the Anne Rice series. After that I read the historical myth and lore behind the legends.

Kain, of the legacy of Kain video game series. There are few that can stand in comparison in the interactive media scape. An eragant noble turned blood thurster by a scheming necromancer, after the before mentioned noble was calously murdered by a band of common thugs. Their poor judment in selecting a mark, doomed Nosgoth to a future governed by a cabal of kain's hand selected lieutenants and there unrepentant Sire. Kain is considered a master tactician, a proud and enigmatic leader and above all else, he is no freind of the Sarafan or the unseen master, The elder god of Nosgoth.
