Who was your crush?

I clearly have too much time on my hands at the moment. While moseying (is that spelled right? I have baby brain, big time) I came across a group devoted to former Twin Peaks actor Dana Ashbrook - who despite the girliness of his name is very much a man.
He was the delectable Bobby Briggs in the series and when I was a teenager (many, many moons ago) I was mildly obsessed with him. I watched Twin Peaks on repeat and saw many a dodgy movie (Ghost Dad with Bill Cosby, anyone?) just because he was in it.
I was mad about him. Seriously. Posters of him even replaced those of Matt and Luke Goss on my walls.
I'd love to know what he is up to now (Considering that was about 15/16 years ago) and what he looks like.
Who was your teenage crush? And here's the big question - would you still, as you fantasised at the age of 16, still run away with them if you asked?

Ooh, would I still run away with Starsky (of ...and Hutch fame)? Now there's a poser - if he still has all his hair and still walks like a monkey and has that gorgeous grin -maybe not -but if I could I'd have def. pasted a pic of hubby on my wall if I'd known him back then!

Mmmmm I was in love with Matt Goss too. I really would not now but sooo would have then! I was also in love with George Michael. And I still would now. But I don't think he would. Not now. :(

Hope you are feeling not so grouchy. Love your blog.

Hmmm. I'm with Gherkin. I think I'd still give George a go, if he was willing.

(I loved Twin Peaks too, but I never liked Bobby.)

I loved Twin Peaks! Remember during uni, you let me borrow one of your rare TP books, Claire?
Definitely the best series ever - and Bob still spooks me!
