Joseph Morgan, Klaus Mikaelson, The Originals

The Originals Joseph Morgan named one of the “Sexiest Men in Wales” for 2014!

The Wales Online website asked people to vote a “shortlist of 10” Welsh men they thought were the sexiest. After getting thousands, they whittled it down to the “50 Sexiest Men in Wales” for 2014.

The Originals Joseph Morgan, our sexy hybrid Klaus Mikaelson, came in a respectable 17th. Some of his friends who made the list include Ioan Gruffudd, Matt Ryan, Matthew Rhys, Luke Evans, Owain Yeoman, Martin Sheen, and Christian Bale.

The other men in the top 50 include chefs, sportsmen, musicians, and adventurers as well as actors! As the website says, “It’s a who’s who of the great and the very, very good!”

Luke Evans

1. Luke Evans

Luke was voted by the Wales Online readers as the #1 Sexiest Man in Wales for 2014. The 35-year old actor was born in Aberbargoed. Could part of his charm and popularity that helped him win be his role of Vlad in the “Dracula Untold” movie? After all, everybody loves vampires! His next role will be Bard in “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.” He and Joseph were both in “Immortals” in 2011.

Matt Ryan

Owain, 36, was born in Chepstow and has played Wayne Rigsby on “The Mentalist” from 2008 to 2014. He recently played Dr. Mason in the Halle Berry series “Extant” and Benedict Arnold in “Turn,” and finished filming the Clint Eastwood movie “American Sniper” starring Bradley Cooper.

Ioan Gruffudd

21. Ioan Gruffudd

Ioan currently plays Dr. Henry Morgan on ABC’s “Forever,” an immortal medical examiner. The series recently received a full season order with a back-nine pickup. Although he plays an immportal, he’s not a vampire, however he’s married to the self-appointed “Mother of all vampires” Alice Evans who plays Esther Mikaelson on The Originals with Joseph! Ioan also starred with fellow Welsh man Michael Sheen in “The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box.”

Matthew Rhys

24. Matthew Rhys

Matthew, 39, was born in Cardiff, and is best buds with Ioan Gruffudd and they were roommates for over 8 years. He recently took a break from his role as Russian agent Phillip Jennings on the popular FX series “The Americans” to play Fitzwilliam Darcy in the “Death Comes to Pemberley” mini-series.

Michael, 45, was born in Newport, and like Joseph and Luke has been a vampire. He starred in the Twilight Saga as Arlo, one of the feared Volturi elders.

Christian Bale

45. Christian Bale

Christian, 40, was born in Haverfordwest, and has stated, “I was born in Wales but I’m not Welsh – I’m English.” He may not be the easiest actor to work with, but he’s definitely one of the best with a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for “The Fighter” in 2011 and Best Actor Oscar for “American Hustle” in 2013. He recently turned down the starring role of Steve Jobs in the biopic, saying that he felt he wasn’t right for the role. Leonardo DiCaprio also turned the role down.
