Twilight's Robert Pattinson Beats Dracula To Title Of Best Vampire

Robert Pattinson’s Twilight character Edward Cullen has topped a poll of the greatest movie vampires of all time.

The 23-year-old actor’s vampire received 38 per cent of the vote ahead of Christopher Lee’s portrayal of Dracula in second.

In third place in the Pearl And Dean survey with 10 per cent of the vote was Wesley Snipes as Blade.

Other notable entries included Keifer Sutherland for The Lost Boys in seventh and Max Schreck’s portrayl of Graf Orlok in Nosferatu in ninth.

A spokeswoman for the website, which polled 3,000 cinemagoers, said Pattinson’s success was “testament to the fact that people still enjoy a good bloodsucker”.

The British actor is currently preparing for the release of The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which hits cinemas worldwide on November 20.
