Fictional crush challenge – day 3

10 days, 10 fictional crushes
Post an image of a fictional character who has been or still is your crush. No names or explanations needed. TV, movie, book, comic, cartoon characters are valid.

Atticus Finch (Gregory Peck) in To Kill a Mockingbird. I will never forget when I first read the book in the summer of 1985 when I was 15 and we were on holiday in Ireland. I found it in a Dublin bookstore and bought it and read it because as a Gregory Peck fan I knew that he had won an Oscar for the movie adaptation. I hadn’t seen the movie yet, so only had very rudimentary information about the story (this was in the days before the internet after all). It’s the only book I can recall reading instantly again. When I say instantly I really do mean instantly. I read the last sentence and then immediately turned to the first page and started reading it all over again. It’s been an absolute favourite book of mine ever since and I completely love the character of Atticus Finch, in a daddy crush kind of way. I didn’t see the movie itself until a few years later and yes, Peck was indeed the perfect embodiment of Atticus.
