Dracula (Lucas Evans)

Fourteen-hour days playing Vlad Tepes, a 13th century warrior who morphs into the king of vampires, left Evans feeling—for lack of a better word—dead. But he rose from the grave to make his workouts. “My trainer couldn’t expect me to be in the gym for an hour and a half,” Evans told Men’s Fitness UK. Thanks to a regimen based around supersetting—performing two exercises back-to-back for a muscle group— Evans was out of the gym (and back in his coffin) in 45 minutes. More frightening than the severity of his workouts, however, was his diet. “No sauces, no creams, no breads, no pastas,” he said. “Incredibly boring. But you know you need to do that when you’re attaining a certain look. It was about keeping the body fat low.”
