Thoughts on the Death of Jonathan Crombie (Gilbert Blythe, Anne of Green Gables)



Very sorry to learn that Jonathan Crombie has passed away. Anne of Green Gables was one of my favorite series as a child (first the books, then the films) and Anne’s innate goodness, willful spirit, wild imagination, limitless passion and her struggles for recognition as a writer are traits that I relate to. Gilbert was Anne’s rock and nobody could rile Anne’s irascible nature like the boy who called her ‘Carrots’. I think we all fell in love with his boyish smile when he rescued Anne, and cried happy tears when that bridge came full circle again. Good-bye, Gil. Thank you for believing in my favorite redhead (and all us ‘Annes’ at heart). Spelled with an ‘e’.
