The 2010s were an incredible decade for pop culture. It brought us shows like Teen Wolf, The Vampire Diaries, The Nine Lives of Chloe King, House of Anubis…I could go on for hours. There’s just something so nostalgic about returning to one of these shows…and to the eye candy that stars in them. Here are five 2020s hearttrobs that live in my head rent-free.
1. Charles Michael Davis
The breakout star of the Vampire Diaries spin off The Originals, Charles Michael Davis played swoony vampire lord Marcel. Try not to all for his grin while watching. I dare you.
2. Blair Redford
Blair Redford stole my heart in both Switched at Birth and The Lying Game. He;s the quintessential ABC Family heartthrob. His hair. His eyse. His biceps.
3. Dylan O’Brien
You can’t think of 2010 without thinking of Dylan O’Brien. We can’t choose a favorite role. Stiles in Teen Wolf? Dave in The First Time? Stuart in The Internship?
There are whole social media accounts dedicated to Dylan’s moles.
And for good reason.
4. Ian Somerhalder
I will neither confirm nor deny that I am currently re-watching The Vampire Diaries, but I can confirm that on screen, Ian Somerhalder is mesmirizing. From the moment I saw him as Boone on Lost, I knew he’d be living rent-free in my head for a looooong time.
5. Alfred Enoch
Dean Thomas. Yes. Wes Gibbins? Also yes. Alfred Enoch’s dimples have their own damn APARTMENT COMPLEX in my head.
Which 2010s heartthrob is your favorite?
