Stephen Moyer, who plays Bill Compton, the undead Southern Civil War veteran:
"If we go from a base level, vampires create a hole in the neck where there wasn't one before. It's a de-virginization, breaking the hymen, creating blood and then drinking the virginal blood. And there's something sharp, the fang, which is probing and penetrating and moving into it. So that's pretty sexy. I think that makes vampires attractive. Plus, Robert Pattinson is just hot, right?"
