Jonathan Crombie died last week at the age of 48, but as Gilbert Blythe in Anne of Green Gables he gave us many memorable moments.

1. When Gilbert first met Anne and was clearly delighted.

2. And was so impressed when she and Diana beat him in a three-legged race that he GAVE HER THIS ADORABLE WINK.

3. When Anne sat near him in class and he couldn't take his eyes off her.

4. And then he GAVE HER ANOTHER WINK when she looked his way.

5. Before flirting terribly by insulting her and getting a slate broken over his head.

The moment Anne Shirley won over Gilbert Blythe and every girl ever.

6. When he immediately apologised to Anne for calling her "carrots" and asked her not to be angry "for keeps".

(She totally was and Gilbert never stopped trying to make up for it, bless).

7. When he was afraid Anne would hurt herself being a ridiculous show-off.

8. When Gilbert and Anne fiercely competed with each other at school.

9. And he still couldn't help but gaze at her lovingly.

10. But he wasn't afraid to call her on her BS either.
