the vampire diaries michael trevino birthday Happy birthday, Michael Trevino: Celebrate with his hottest 'The Vampire Diaries' moments

Happy birthday, Michael Trevino!

“The Vampire Diaries” resident vampire/werewolf hybrid turns 29 on Saturday (Jan. 25), and to celebrate, we decided to look back on Tyler Lockwood’s hottest moments on The CW’s supernatural drama. We didn’t include his return during “The Vampire Diaries” 100th episode that aired on Thursday (Jan. 23) though, because his timing couldn’t have been more awkward for his ex Caroline.

But put that issue aside for now, and feast your eyes on Tyler’s hottest moments from the past five seasons of “TVD.” You’re welcome.

There was that time his fellow hybrids tried to rebel against his leadership, and he proved he was the alpha of their pack and made them all submit to him to save his girlfriend from being tortured:

Caroline was once again being tortured — this time by her own dad, of all people — and Tyler came in to save the day once again. What a hero:

Three words: Werewolf/vampire sex. Sorry not sorry:

And then there was that time he and Caroline were interrupted from telling each other “I love you” by a hunter with a grudge:

And remember when Klaus possessed Tyler’s body? There was something about the way Trevino portrayed the big bad villain that was just plain awesome:

And when Tyler finally stood up to Klaus, he really let the Original have it:

Honorable mention goes to whenever Tyler suited up to play football, but we had to subtract points for his sire bond-induced jerk attitude and do rag:

So happy birthday, Trevino! Here’s hoping we’ll get many more hot moments from you on “The Vampire Diaries” now that you’re back.

“The Vampire Diaries” airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
