To a generation of fans, the Canadian-born actor was dreamy boy-next-door Gilbert Blythe. But he was, of course, so much more as well. Here, his Anne of Green Gables costar Megan Follows shares her memories of Crombie, who died on April 15 at the age of 48.
ANNE: Thank you, for giving up the school for me, Gilbert. It’s very good of you and I want you to know that I appreciate it. GILBERT: I figure you can give me help with my work, and I’ll call it a fair exchange. ANNE: Aren’t you worried? I’m liable to break another slate over your head. GILBERT: I’m more worried I might break one over yours, Carrots.
