"TWILIGHT heartthrob Robert Pattinson’s character Edward Cullen is the world’s favourite movie vampire. Robert, 23, drew first blood with 38 per cent of votes in the survey of more than 3,000 cinema-goers.
The star even beat Christopher Lee’s chilling portrayal of Dracula, which came second with 15 per cent of the vote.
And it seems Robert is even knocking Hollywood’s hottest A-listers from the top spot, with Tom Cruise’s Interview with the Vampire character, Lestat, at number four.
The news comes less than a month before the release of the second movie in the saga, New Moon - due to hit cinemas on November 20th.
Fans have already been scrambling to buy tickets as some opening night screenings sold out within days of going on sale.
And excited fans in the US are getting set for the nationwide New Moon Cast Tour.
Meanwhile, David Slade - director of the third film Eclipse - has just finished filming in Vancouver.
He posted on his Twitter page: “Wrapped five actors tonight, its getting a lot less crowded in Forks. Best wishes now and into the future to all those who finished work tonight. Just a few more days shooting left.
“Finish line is approaching...and then there's post production to start, 8 months of it... Will keep tweeting through post... Its not over until the film is in cinemas.”
