What can I say? I'm a Dean girl (Supernatural). Though I knew him since that one season he was on Smallville. It's that smirk of his.

He's the Green Arrow currently. He spends lots of time not wearing a shirt on Arrow. It's kind of hard not to go weak in the knees...

3. Daniel Gillies

My favorite Doctor, my favorite Scot (yes, even over Sean Connery). I follow his career pretty closely now. Great actor but so much fun to look at...

Born John ...

So, he's married to Emily Blunt. He was also Jim on The Office, and he's done a ton of films. Plus, he helped make Lip Sync Battle over on Spike. He's the funny, guy next door type. Oh, that smile.

6. David Boreanaz

Even though I gravitate toward Dean, I also like Sam. Some like him as Dean (Gilmore Girls); for me, Jared will always be Sam aka "Moose."

You'll find I have a thing for guys who play/ed vampires. He was Eric Northman on True Blood. He's been in other things too. He's a really good actor, of course, but he's also a very beautiful man.

He's Damon on The Vampire Diaries. Who doesn't like Damon? (With or without those black t-shirts he wears). He was also Boone on Lost, plus he was on Smallville too. So, I've been following his baby blues for awhile now.

Klaus on The Originals. I don't know why I like him, but I do. It's probably his accent, and he plays a bad boy. The baddest boy, actually. Don't mess with Klaus.
