Jonathan Crombie brought Gilbert Blythe to life for me and I don’t know how or why he passed away but as Anne would say “I am in the depths of despair.”
This and all of the Outlander (which I love) hype brought up my love for fictional men. I read Anne of Green Gables in 6th grade so I guess it started then…..don’t get me started on the Outsiders (7th grade)….that could be a whole other post. This started me thinking about how much I like fictional men, compared to the real ones. Granted my personal track record of really bad choices had its part as well.
Eric from the Sookie Stackhouse books was also a great book boyfriend, True Blood let me down with that casting. Alexander Skarsgard was tall and blonde but he was not the Viking god like man that was described, he was too skinny and they tried to make him clean cut…… HBO ruined those books for me on a whole. I didn’t even finish watching the series. Kristin Bauer Van Straten as Pam was the best casting choice that they made on that show. Oh wait Alcide….I forgot about him. I didn’t care for him in the book but on the screen…oh yeah.
I wasn’t really sure where I was going with this post…I never do….maybe I should rename it eye candy…I guess I got a little carried away…..Zia
