True Blood Allan Hyde MTV's Hump Day Hottie

Sure, Allan Hyde may not be with us anymore on "True Blood" (oops! Spoiler alert!), but that doesn't mean we're not crushing on the man we got to know as Godric for a (way too) short amount time. And, we're hoping now that he's won the hearts of the ladies here in the U.S. we'll be seeing more of him! Press play on the video below to see just why we nominated him our Hump Day Hottie this week:

Vital Stats: This 20-year-old hails from Denmark and couldn't be more excited to find out how much girls are crushing on him stateside, describing the accolade as "cool." What's cooler is that this up-and-coming actor also happens to be single and looking for that special someone. "I'm looking for someone that I can talk to about everything," he tells Hollywood Crush. "A nice laugh, a warm laugh."

Where you might have already seen him: If you live in Europe you'll know him from "Awakening," "Album" and "2900 Happiness." But, since we don't, we only know him as the 2000-year-old vamp, Godric, on "True Blood." Also, let’s not forget he voiced the character Ron Weasley for the Denmark-edition of "Harry Potter" and sang on the Danish version of the "Camp Rock" soundtrack.

Being so unfamiliar with TV programming overseas, he says he had no idea what "True Blood" even was at first. "That's the thing, in Denmark we get all the bad American TV shows over there. So when I heard that this was an audition, I was psyched about it. I'm such a big fan of the show now."

Why you should take notice of him now: Obviously jumping on the vampire bandwagon won't be hurting Allan's career anytime soon and now he's hard at work on a slew of projects in his native country, but he says that if anything should happen for him in America he'd be back here to work. That is, if he can make one important improvement.

"It's hard because I have an accent and so few roles allow an accent to be there," he explained. "So I'm really working hard at getting the American accent." "True Blood" creator Allan Ball, however, embraced the actor's native vernacular. "Probably one of the reasons he chose me is this accent," he says of his Danish-British (and slight American) tongue which he calls an "undefinable" hybrid. "It was the thing [Ball] liked about it. You can't track [Godric] back to one place."

We're not doubting we'll be seeing more of Allan sometime again soon, but don't expect him to immediately embrace the image of a certain other handsome bloodsucker. "I have no idea whether the Robert Pattinson situation is something I really want or not," he admits. "It's cool that a lot of people admire you. But I think his attention might be a little overwhelming!"

Until next Wednesday, you can get the rest of your hottie fix by clicking on Allan's photo below to see who else is in our vault!

I'm just glad he's 20, so I can totally crush on him. He's turned into my favorite vampire not just in the books, but in the show. :D

Yes, but does he know how many older women are crushing on him? That must freak him out.
