Confession

It's true. I've been falling for the handsome {and sometimes unlikely} heroes of books, tv and film for a long, long time. Here are a few who've stolen my heart over the years.

One of my first fictional loves was Gilbert Blythe from Anne of Green Gables. He was lovely in the books {it always baffled me, how Anne took years to realize she was in love with him!}, and completely dreamy in the miniseries. I think all good Canadian girls had a thing for Gilbert.

Oh, Mr Darcy! So proud. So prejudiced. And played to perfection by Colin Firth.

Do you remember Northern Exposure? It was my favourite show in the early 90s. Sure, the main character was New Yorker Joel, but the man I loved in Cicely, Alaska, was radio DJ "Chris in the Morning" {played by the adorable John Corbett}.

Who knew how much I'd love Doctor Who? Alan convinced me to give the BBC sci-fi hit a go, and I quickly fell in love with David Tennant and his portrayal of the Tenth Doctor. He's just so fun, and joyous, and  clever. And he looks super-cute in his pin-striped suit and Converse sneakers. I wept when he left the show.

Finally... my Sawyer. You know how much I love him! LOST will always be my favourite show, and James "Sawyer" Ford will always be my TV boyfriend. Those dimples! That southern accent! Those abs! Sigh... Con-man, bookworm, lovable rogue, hero. He is my "constant." {and Alan is oh-so-jealous!}

Who are the fictional characters you've fallen in love with?

  1. I've never watched Doctor Who?, but other than that you and I have the same fictional loves! I have very few friends who watched Northern Exposure, but that was when I first fell in love with John Corbett. And Gil...sigh. :-)

  2. I have loved Gilbert Blythe for...most of my life. Isn't he such a stud? It just made my heart all fluttery just thinking about him! And the same for Colin Firth. I recently saw The King's Speech....and I was reminded that I will continue to love that man until the day I die. <3 <3 <3

    Now you've got me all swoony, and it's barely 7am!!

  3. For some reason when I was a kid I fell in love with Rhoda, an American sit com character of the same name. I thought she was funny.

  5. Colin Firth in everything he does. Joseph-Gordon Levitt'c character ("tom") in 500 Days of Summer, Matt Damon in The Bourne series. Sigh.

  9. Oh, there were so many. I'm definitely with you on the Doctor. I once even fell for a cartoon character, but I was young and foolish then. I've also always had a bit of a thing for Daniel Jackson from Stargate SG-1. I'm a huge dork...
