Canadian actor Jonathan Crombie, best known for playing Gilbert Blythe in the "Anne of Green Gables" movies, died Wednesday of a brain hemorrhage, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reports. He was 48.
"He was funny, he was sweet, he loved acting, he loved comedy and singing and dancing," said Crombie's sister, Carrie Crombie. "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."
