Re: Your first "TV crush"


...well okay I'll be honest. It was Chekov. It's embarrassing but I was what, five? Far too young to comprehend the vast difference between Chekov and Spock.

Once upon a time, I also thought Luke was cuter than Han.

God, this is embarrassing. Shaun Cassidy from "The Hardy Boys Mysteries."
I'm not sure that's worse than my Chekov confession, but it's close.

Dirk Benedict on the original "Battlestar Galactica." I must have been in 3rd or 4th grade at the time.

I've been a lifelong fan ever since.

I'm not sure. It was either Lee Majors as the Six Million Dollar Man, Doug McClure as Trampas on the Virginian or the Shat as you know who. They were the first in a very long line of tv boyfriends.
Wow! So many like-minded folks here... Shaun Cassidy, Dirk Benedict, James Darren, Doug McClure... all were my TV crushes at some point.

But my earliest TV crushes weren't even human: Casey on "Mr. Dressup" and Kimba the White Lion!

I was also really fond of Jughead and Marine Boy...

Mary Tamm as Romana on Doctor Who. As a result, I have a thing for posh brunette ice queens to this day. Annoyingly, of all the many types of women who are not interested in me, they're probably the least interested.

Lalla Ward's Romana, though... nah. Did nothing for me. Richard Dawkins can have her.

Oooh! I also have to add Dana Plato from Diff'rent Strokes to that list. She was on TV at about that time too.

Inspired by what someone posted in another thread, who was your very first crush of an actor or actress you saw on television?

For me, I want to say Erin Gray in Buck Rogers, but I watched it during weekday reruns long after it had been canceled. And it was probably during Silver Spoons, so I don't remember where I saw her first. But she looked a lot better on Buck Rogers.
She was one of my first, but I recall being extremely impressed by Maren Jensen (Athena) on Battlestar Galactica.

Maren Jensen would probably be a close 2nd.
If no one comes from the future to stop you from doing it, then how bad of a decision can it really be?

Yeah, i had a crush on Shaun Cassidy too!

But that was my younger self. My hugest(is that a word?)was Tom Selleck in Magnum P. I. I think the car helped too, though

Jonathan Frid as Barnabas Collins on Dark Shadows tied with David Selby as Quentin Collins on the same show. I wanted to grow up to be Angelique.

Julie Newmar as Catwoman in Batman.
Excellent! She was oh so poured into that outfit!

Then again, there was one other that was just as much a crush for me:

Ginger Grant.

Such a choice!
