Jonathan Crombie died suddenly of a brain hemorrhage in New York on Wednesday and the news only broke this weekend. My mom says it was big news in Canada on Sat and that doesn't surprise me. Crombie got his big break as Gilbert Blythe in the Anne movies opposite Megan Follows when they were teenagers and that pretty much sealed his fate as a Canadian icon.

His sister is quoted as saying he loved Gil so much and was so proud of the role that he would happily answer to Gil when the name was called out by fans on the street and that makes me very happy.

I love those movies (Yes, even the third one. I refuse to talk about the fourth one.) and I loved the way he and Follows gave life to Anne and Gil. Anne is probably one of the only books where I have ever had a mental image for the characters and Follows and Crombie were Anne and Gil and always will be.

Needless to say, I'll be taking a break from the unexpected SG1 rewatch to stay up too late watching Anne.
