To some, red heads are considered evil. Probably because they're stealing souls with their good looks. Check out TV's hottest red heads now!

From Jensen Ackles to Jayma Mays, take a look at this list of gorgeous gingers!

1. Jayma Mays

Jayma Mays
Jayma Mays played lovable, quirky Emma Pillsbury on Glee for five seasons. As the show's sole red head, her hair helped her stand out in the huge ensemble.

2. Darby Stanchfield

Darby Stanchfield
Darby Stanchfield gives life to Abby Whelan, Scandal's firey friend and colleague of Olivia Pope.

3. Jensen Ackles

Jensen Ackles
Allegedly, Jensen Ackles' beard is red. It's not a look Dean Winchester rocks often, so you'll have to take our word for it.

4. Seth Green

Seth Green
We all fell in love with Seth Green when he played Oz on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. We haven't fallen out of love with him in the years since.

5. Mariska Hargitay

Mariska Hargitay
Mariksa Hargitay's short, red look on Law & Order: SVU helped define the character of Olivia Benson.

6. Anna Torv

Anna Torv
So Anna Torv may not be an a real ginger, but she spent time playing one in the Alternate Universe on Fringe and proved that she looks good in red.

7. Christina Hendricks

Christina Hendricks
On both Mad Men and Body of Proof, Christina Hendricks has been heating up our screens since 1999.

8. Michael C. Hall

Michael C. Hall
Michael C. Hall, like Jensen Ackles, isn't a total ginger, but when that beard is in? Yep. It's red for sure. Fans of Dexter caught glimpses in the scruff his character sported throughout the series, but that final shot of our favorite SKILF appeared, there was no hiding the hue.

9. Debra Messing

Debra Messing
From Will & Grace to The Starter Wife to Smash to The Mysteries of Laura, Debra Messing and her amazing red hair have proven they're both in this television thing for the long haul.

10. Kate Walsh

Kate Walsh
Kate Walsh and her auburn locks gained notoriety as Dr. Addison Montgomery on Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice before she brought Judge Rebecca Wright to life on Bad Judge.

11. Isla Fisher

Isla Fisher
Isla Fisher, so beautiful she might not actually be human, played Rebel Alley on Arrested Development when Netflix revived the canceled series in 2013.

12. Laura Prepon

Laura Prepon
Laura Prepon is sporting a darker look these days, but fans remember her trademark long red hair on That 70's Show.

13. Conan O'Brien

Conan O'Brien
He got the shaft when it came to landing his dream talk show gig, but we're not giving him the same treatment here. Conan O'Brien is a redhead AND he's funny, and funny is totally sexy.

14. Damien Lewis

Damien Lewis
Nicholas Brody's allegiances were uncertain for a while on Homeland, but Damien Lewis' hotness was never in question.

15. Elena Satine

Elena Satine
Elena Satine hit the Revenge Season 4 scene as Louise Ellis, a woman who became obsessed with Victoria during their joint stay in a mental institution. We don't covet her crazy, but we do covet her hair.

16. Marcia Cross

Marcia Cross
Since Desperate Housewives went off the air, we haven't seen nearly as much of redhead Marcia Cross as we'd like.

17. Alyson Hannigan

Alyson Hannigan
While reports state that Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) is a natural brunette, she's most well-known for sporting red locks. She can certainly pull off the look!
