Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson is king of the vampires. He topped True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgård and “New Moon’s Taylor Lautner by a wide margin in an Improper poll.
The final results are in after fans cast nearly 8,000 votes. Rob leads with 66 percent of the vote, followed by Alexander with 21 percent of the vote and Taylor with 13 percent.
Rob’s dedicated fans turned out in droves to express their feelings for the star of the “Twilight” series. Taylor is building his own fan base since his star turn in “New Moon” but Team Taylor is no match for Team Rob.
Skarsgård has been developing a dedicated following just like Rob ever since being cast in 2008 as the sexy vampire Eric Northman in the hit HBO series “True Blood.”
The poll also included “New Moon’s” Taylor because of the outstanding job he did in the “Twilight” sequel and the rise of “Team Jacob,” the legion of fans who support the hot young actor.
Outside of the Twilight series, Taylor is developing a career as an action-adventure hero. He has considerable martial arts skills.
While Rob’s fans are still the most dedicated and most active, Taylor made a late surge in the voting whittling away both Rob’s and Alexander’s leads.
Rob’s margin of victory fell from a preliminary tally of 72 percent to 66 percent and Alexander slipped to 21 percent to 26 percent of the vote.
Taylor surged from a distant third with only 2 percent of the vote to 13 percent.
The gorgeous 6′4″ Swede will show off his superfit physique this season as his bad-boy character has more provocative sex scenes with both male and female characters. Rob also has a bad-boy aura that makes him irresistible as Edward Cullen.
Fans are rooting for him to hook up with Sokie in the upcoming season, which Alexander promises will be racier than ever, including ramped up nude scenes. Look out!
“There’s a lot of nudity [in Season 3],” Skarsgård promises. “There’s going to be a lot violence and a lot of sex [for Eric] — with women and men! So it should be interesting.”
Season Three of “True Blood” begins filming later this month and airs on HBO in June 2010. “Twilight” sequel is in theaters now and the next installments “Eclipse,” and “Breaking Dawn” will appear in the summer and fall of 2010.
