If you ever watched Anne of Green Gables (AoGG) when you were young, you probably had the biggest crush on Gilbert Blythe — Anne’s nemesis (and then lover, later on in the series).

Sadly, news broke just this past weekend that Jonathan Crombie, who played the iconic role, died suddenly of a brain hemorrhage on April 15 in New York City.

The Canadian actor’s boy-next-door charm on CBC’s TV drama adaptation of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s AoGG and left hearts all over this country swooning are now mourning his loss.

RIP Jonathan Crombie, you’ll always be Gil in our hearts.
