My heartthrob is… How old???
OK, anyone who’s known me for five minutes knows that my (almost) lifelong actor crush is on David Selby, who played the roguish Quentin Collins on Dark Shadows. I was 12 years old when I first laid eyes on him, and his handsome, 6′ 4″ presence rocked my pre-adolescent little world.
His birthday was this past weekend. He turned 70.
No way. It can’t be. He is not 70.
Ah, but he is. (sigh)
But in my mind, in my stacks of Dark Shadows DVDs, he will always look like this:
Oh, the fantasy mileage I’ve gotten from David Selby and his alter ego. I even wrote a spanking story about traveling back in time and finding myself face to face with his character in Collinwood, 1897. But wait, there’s more! My good buddy Dave Wolfe immortalized us both, a couple of years ago:
Wolfie is so freaking talented, isn’t he? Swisssshhhhh! Heehee…
I know, I know… does it get any sillier? I’m way too damn old for crushes. But I’ve had so much fun with this one, it’s hard to let it go.
So happy belated birthday, David… I still love ya! 🙂
