Fictional Characters I’ve Been In Love With


Happy Valentine’s Day angels!

And a very special Happy V Day to the following fictional characters that I have been in love with at one stage of my life. I tried to put them in chronological order based on how old I was at the time but those lines were quickly blurred when I realised I still have a crush on Troy Bolton. I’ve also included links to images of all the dashing men just to jog your memory (here’s looking at you, Johnny Bravo).


Nathan from Hi 5 (I mean he taught me how to spell o-p-p-o-s-i-t-e.)

Aladdin (He offered to show me the world!!!)

Johnny Bravo (Gave me very unrealistic hair expectations for future boyfriends.)

The boy with the blonde spikey hair who played the drums in School Of Rock (The first of many bad-boy-musicians-that-aren’t-bad-boys-or-musicians I’ve fallen in love with.)

Danny Zuko (John Travolta), Grease (Sure he was obnoxious with a bad reputation but he also wore a man-cardigan to show Sandy how much he loved her.)

Troy Bolton (Zac Efron), High School Musical  (In all three instalments. But particularly HSM2 when Troy did a v. emotional dance performance on a golf course).

Link Larkin (Zac Efron), Hairspray (To be fair this was just a flow-on effect from Troy Bolton.)

Tom (Ashton Kutcher), Just Married (Aaaand just realised that 99% of the movies on this list have outrageously bad plot lines.)

Oliver (Ashton Kutcher), A Lot Like Love (It took Oliver and Emily seven years to realise they should be together and took me about seven seconds.)

Seth Cohen, The O.C (Every girl wants a Seth.)

Jamie Randall (Jake Gyllenhaal), Love & Other Drugs (Well sure.)

Holden Worther (Jake Gyllenhaal), The Good Girl (The best part is that Jake Gyllenhaal later confessed to having a paralysing crush on Jennifer Anniston the entire time they were filming this movie.)

Landon Carter (Shane West), A Walk To Remember (That little curl in the corner of his mouth when he smiled?)

Graham (Jude Law), The Holiday  (Completely improbable that someone this handsome would live in such a small town but whatever.)

Uncle Jesse, Full House (He drove his motorbike inside the house and wore leather jackets in the middle of summer?)

Aidan, Sex & The City  (I was team Aidan get over it.)

Dr. Spencer Reid, Criminal Minds (Doesn’t make sense to me either.)
