|For a bit of silliness, I
decided that it was time for the creation of a 'girl' page i.e. a page
that would highlight the celebrity and/or fictional female characters
that I have admired (or fallen in love with) during my life.
Perhaps some insight into my inner character can be determined from
considering the 'girls' that show up on this page.
Douglas) stole my heart in the Beverly Hillbillies
TV show (1962-1971). She was cute, modest, and tough! Her
cooking skills, however, left much to be desired -- but she liked cats
(and other critters). I found out many years later that the
actress herself is a Christian!
|Mary Ann (Dawn Wells)
appeared on Gilligan's
Island (1964-1967). The best word to describe her would be
'wholesome'. Unlike Elly, she could cook -- even if it was often
coconut cream pie!
Eden) was my next crush in I
(1965-1970). She was funny, very pretty, and would do almost
to please her 'master'. Even so, she was strong-willed when she
to be (and not). I still have a black & white poster that I
was a kid.
Wagner) captivated me during my teenage years in The
Woman (1975-1978). She was beautiful and very strong,
but also very sensitive. She was my image of the perfect
Diana/Wonder Woman (Lynda
Carter) brought a comic book heroine to life
in Wonder Woman
(1976-1979). A lady of virtue and strength! The newer
League series portrays the same ideal character.
Leia Organa (Carrie
Fisher) knocked my socks off in the original Star Wars movies
(1977-1983). Here was a
girl who was smart, pretty, and could kick Empire but! I would
have rescued this damsel anytime, or she could do the same for me!
is a real person (unlike the fictious ones shown above). I fell
love with her in 1979 when I bought my first record album ("My Father's
Eyes"). Beautiful, talented, and a warm vibrant Christian!
every music concert that I have ever attended was for her when she
played in my city. Of course, her getting married killed off any
I had of marrying her myself :).
|Kara Zor-El/Supergirl (Helen Slater) turned my comic book love into a live-action movie Supergirl (1984). While the movie itself was not so great, this 'real' supergirl was amazing! Check out this link if you want to read the original 'Supergirl' comic online.|
|Anne Shirley (Megan Follows) turned my head in Anne of Green Gables (1985). She was a feisty, independent girl with a romantic imagination. My co-workers would kind enough to buy me an entire calendar full of photos of her!|
is a comic
book super-heroine that I was impressed by in the X-Men animated series
(1992-1997). This southern beauty was the Marvel equivalent of
Supergirl. The recent live-action X-Men movies present Rogue (Anna Paquin, born in my
city!) at a younger time when she hadn't yet aquired her most amazing
goddess from a Japanese animated (anime) TV series (and
movie) named Ah!
I fell in love at first sight! Here was the portrayal of a
perfect girl, girlfriend, and wife -- pure, warm, kind, devoted, and
beautiful. Although she is a 'goddess' in the mythic theology of
the series, a better comparison would probably be an 'angel' sent to
|Ahsoka Tano is the
Jedi Padawan to Anakin Skywalker in the Star Wars Clone
Wars animated TV series. Intelligent, witty, kind, moral, and
pretty -- and with a 'kick butt' attitude and ability! She is
voiced by Ashley
Eckstein, a talented Christian voice actor.
...and who will be next to steal my heart? Will my future soul mate capture the beauty, strength, virtue, intelligence, and warmth of all these women? We will see!
