Guys, I'm sad.
Gilbert Blythe has died.
Well. Jonathan Crombie, the man who played him, has died. (You can read about it here.)
Anne of Green Gables is one of my favorite movies. I watched it all the time as a kid. It always put a smile on my face.
When girls were flipping out over the pale, sparkling Edward Cullen, I'd be like, "No. Gilbert Blythe is the one I want."
Yes, I watched all the Anne movies. I was glad when Anne and Gilbert finally got together. Of course I knew they would: I read all the books. But watching it unfold on screen was wonderful. I'm so glad Anne forgave him.
I still watch the movies to this day. I hope one day my daughter will love them just as much as I do.
Thank you, Jonathan, for bringing the character of Gilbert alive. You played him so well. You made my heart swoon.
You will be missed.
