Growing up, I almost never had a celebrity crush. I never idolized a man on TV that much anyway, even until now. But these norms didn’t apply when I saw Cole Turner, known best as the demon husband of Pheobe. He was different from any other man I have seen on TV. He was tall, handsome and powerful. He was so charming, I could totally understand why Pheobe didn’t pick on his evilness in the early stage. I would marry him even if he’s a demon.
Waiting for another week to watch him for a mere hour with twelve advertisement intervals seemed painful. While displaying his poster on my bedroom felt like the best decoration idea I had ever thought of. I cut a picture of him from a magazine (which I bought solely because he was featured in it) and carried it everywhere. Some days, especially during long winded classes, I would take it out and put him beside my pencil case, you know, to give me company. Some teachers noticed it, thought it was some sort of cheat sheet, and after examining it, they would shrug, blame it on teenage hormones, and return Julian to me. I even made a lifetime friendship with a classmate due to our mutual love towards him.
The crush has toned down ever since. I have stopped shouting out I would marry him, marry only him on various occasions, including family gathering and parent-teacher conference. But it’s not completely gone, he still holds a special place in my heart, in between Bradley Cooper and Ranbir Kapoor.
Ps. Even though I have fallen in love with him as Cole, his best performance was as Dr. Christian Troy. And if he was to ask me, what don’t I like about myself, I would say the fact that I wasn’t married to him.
