The series has no shortage of bloodsuckers and these vampires will be particularly remembered.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer started vampire fashion on the small screen in 1997 and since then we have lost count of the number of series that have featured blood drinkers. These supernatural figures who were once scary now fascinate crowds. In movies, in books or on television, their representations have changed. They are no longer evil incarnate, they are beings like us, endowed with sensitivity, who can fall in love. And they also make villains as complex as they are cruel . The Vampire Diaries, True Blood, The Originals, Penny Dreadful, Dracula … We can no longer count the number of series which feature vampires all more brilliant than the others and here are the best of them. .

The vampire endowed with a soul and embodied by David Boreanaz knew very quickly how to conquer the hearts of spectators by protecting and supporting our favorite vampire slayer over the seasons. If we were heartbroken when Angel left the show at the end of Season 3, we were able to find him in a dedicated spin-off and he turned out to be even more interesting, more moving and deeper than what 'we already knew him.

In the family of characters we love to hate, we ask the manipulative vampire Katherine Pierce in the series The Vampire Diaries. Devilishly cruel, queen of mind games, desperate for her survival, delightfully devious and true seductress, she was much more interesting and fun to watch than her double Elena . Nina Dobrev has never been more convincing than in Katherine Pierce.

Klaus (The Vampire Diaries, The Originals)

Certainly, Klaus is a half-vampire, half-werewolf hybrid, but we couldn't exclude him from this list given his complexity. From his debut in The Vampire Diaries as a ruthless original, able to slaughter innocent people without a hint of guilt , to The Originals as a loving father, Klaus has come a long way. Not to mention that he is an intelligent, cultured, elegant character capable of sensitivity when he wants to.

It was while playing The Countess Elizabeth in American Horror Story: Hotel that Lady Gaga won her first Golden Globe . Adorned with diamonds, gloves and blades at the level of the nails, the singer knew how to make everyone agree by interpreting this serial-killer passionate about fashion, but especially thirsty for blood.

Eric Northman (Trueblood)

Eric is THE vampire the Trueblood series couldn't do without, even more so than Bill. In the guise of Alexander Skarsgård, he was darkly funny, cynical, terribly cruel and unpredictable all at once , but he also knew how to be charming, courteous and surprisingly vulnerable. He has changed a lot in seven seasons, but he always kept his little mischievous side and especially his sex appeal.

Rebekah Mikaelson (The Originals, The Vampire Diaries)

Klaus' sister was as annoying as she was touching, and she elicited both love and hate from viewers. Despite having spent over 1000 years as a vampire, Rebekah never lost sight of her human desires, fighting to the end to have a normal life and find love and happiness . Whether in The Vampire Diaries or The Originals , Rebekah Mikaelson has made its way into our hearts.

Difficult to decide between the two Salvatores brothers. One is dark, eaten up by guilt, not daring to let go and extremely benevolent. The other is more devious, more fun, more selfish, more cynical. Their relationship is as complex as it is touching . But one thing is certain, they are both very sensitive and will do anything for their sweetheart Elena. Some will be Team Damon, others Team Stefan, but we couldn't separate them.

Spike (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

At the start of the series, we loved to hate Spike. With his Billy Idol look and evil humor, he made a perfect opponent for the vampire slayer . And then he ended up joining the Scooby Gang, keeping his complicated character but also developing sensitivity. He still ended up dying for the woman he loves and this romantic gesture marked the spirits so much that it made him the favorite vampire of the series.

Pamela Swynford De Beaufort (True Blood)

Pamela Swynford De Beaufort is none other than Eric's offspring and we thank him for having fathered her. There is no more glamorous and capricious than this vampire who runs the Fangtasia bar in True Blood. But she is also and above all an independent woman with an excellent sense of repartee . Special mention to her iconic monologue on Sookie's “fairy vagina” , when she gets angry with her on her own. A delightful moment.

Dracula (Penny Dreadful)

Dracula is one of the most iconic vampires in the history of culture and has been adapted several times on the big screen and the small screen. One of the latest is from the Penny Dreadful series, with Christian Camargo in the role. This charismatic, sexy, and sinister version of the character won us over, and the fact that Dr. Alexander Sweet turned out to be the famous bloodsucker was one of the most memorable twists of the series.
