Reign Francis Death

Reign's Toby Regbo Says Goodbye to Fans: 'It's Been an Absolute Pleasure'

Still have a tickle in your throat after Friday’s Reign? Perhaps a few words from (former) star Toby Regbo will help to mend your broken heart.

“So, after a [few] good innings, Francis finally bit the bullet,” Regbo posted to Twitter on Sunday night, just two days after his royal character’s death aired on The CW. “A rare ear infection/assassin combo.”

(In case you missed Francis’ untimely passing, feel free to watch the nightmare here.)

“I just wanted to say it’s been an absolute pleasure,” he continued. “I want to say a massive thank you to you, the fans, who make it so worthwhile. … It’s been a blast being the king.”

Regboners, or so I’m led to believe Regbo calls his fans, have you come to terms with Francis’ death? Read the actor’s full statement below, then drop a comment with your thoughts on his character’s passing.
