Jonathan Crombie, ‘Anne of Green Gables’ Actor, Dies at 48
He was 48.
Crombie’s sister told CBC News that her brother suffered a brain hemorrhage and died in New York City on Wednesday.
The actor played love interest Gilbert Blythe in CBC’s Anne of Green Gables miniseries.
“He was funny, he was sweet,” his sister said. “He loved acting, he loved comedy and singing and dancing. As a little kid, he just loved Broadway shows and all of that kind of stuff and would sing and dance in the living room.”
Crombie, born in Canada, was also the son of ex-Toronto mayor David Crombie.
He appeared in several TV shows over the past 20 years including “The Good Wife” and “21 Jump Street.”
