Vampire of the Week

Vampire of the Week is a semi-weekly feature on my blog. For more information, go here.

And this week's Vampire of the Week is. . .


HENRY FITZROY

Henry Fitzroy is one of the main characters in the Canadian television series Blood Ties, based on the "Blood Books" by Tanya Huff.



Based on the historical character Henry Fitzroy, 1st Duke of Richmond ans Somerset - the bastard son of Henry VIII of England, Henry Fitzroy chose love over familial duty and sacrificed his mortal life to remain forever with the woman he loved; Christina. Vampiric circumstances, however, prevented him from remaining with her and now, after 450 years of existence, he is living in Toronto as a graphic novelist.



His quiet, hidden life takes on a new twist when he collides with Vicki Nelson in an attempt to stop a man from bringing a demon into the mortal world. As they work to solve this case, and subsequently other supernatural problems, Henry grows deeply attracted to Vicki's willful nature and exuberance for life, eventually falling for her. Though she seems to resist his advances, he continues to pursue her and, mostly due to his centuries of experience and knowledge of both sides of the supernatural, he becomes Vicki's partner and bodyguard.



Henry is played by the Canadian actor Kyle Schmid. Kyle was borned in 1984 in Mississauga, Ontario.

I ADORE this show. Haven't read the books yet, but I've got them on my e-reader. I was so sad when they canceled Blood Ties! But I'm glad you brought it up! :)

Hello Ya (and others),

Great to see that you've featured one of the most beloved and favored vampires to date, Henry Fitzroy.

It seems that Henry has been getting quite a lot of attention and mentions these days... from just last Monday, as one of VampChix's VampBoyz of the week, to author Nicole Hadaways' piece on why she loves Henry Fitzroy, to the very top of the year when Kyle Schmid, the actor who embodies Henry, won the Sexiest man in the vampire realm (beating out Robert Pattinson fangs down),re: http://www.examiner.com/x-20555-Memphis-Vampire-Examiner%7Ey2010m1d1-There-is-a-new-vampire-in-town-and-Henry-is-his-name

Great that more vampire fans are discovering Henry and Blood Ties. :[
