‘Anne of Green Gables’ Actor Jonathan Crombie Who Played Gilbert Blythe Dies At Age 48

The Canadian actor who played Gilbert Blythe on the PBS hit mini-series Anne of Green Gables, died Saturday morning at the age of 48 from a brain hemorrhage.

Many of us from Generation X to the older Millenials, grew up watching and adoring his character in this beloved series and he was definitely considered many of our first TV crushes. Crombie also played roles more recently in The Good Wife and 21 Jump Street.

48 is way to young, and our thoughts are with his family.
