On Childhood Television Crushes

As seen on Bill Leisner‘s LiveJournal:

List five fictional people — from television, movies, books, whatever — that you had a crush on as a child (or early teens). Then post this on your LiveJournal so other people can be assured that you’re as weird as they thought.

5. Vina (Susan Oliver of Star Trek: “The Cage”).
4. Zoe Harriot (Wendy Padbury of Doctor Who).
3. Lieutenant Saavik (Kirstie Alley and Robin Curtis of the Star Trek films).
2. Sarah Jane Smith (Lis Sladen of Doctor Who).
1. Batgirl/Barbara Gordon (Yvonne Craig of Batman).

Bill indicated in his list the crushes he hadn’t yet gotten over. I haven’t gotten over any of these…. 😉
