To the millions of readers who have read Anne Of Green Gables and watched the miniseries based on the books, Jonathan will always be remembered as Gilbert Blythe.
Gilbert starts out as Anne’s tormentor. He goads her and gets her in trouble. He will soon realize that he is in love with Anne, but Anne takes a little bit of time to return Gilbert’s affections. For many young female bookworms Gilbert Blythe was our first literary crush.
My thoughts and prayers are with those who knew him best. RIP.
