Torrance Coombs is leaving Bash behind…
The 32-year-old actor, who plays the role on CW’s Reign, is leaving the show to join ABC’s Still Star-Crossed, THR reports.
Torrance joins Wade Briggs on the upcoming Shonda Rhimes show, and he’ll take on the role of Count Paris. The Count of Mantua, he is betrothed to marry Juliet — whom he’s never met — and is saddened when she dies. The character is rumored to be the show’s central villain.
Based on the book by Melinda Taub, the period drama picks up where Romeo and Juliet left off, charting the treachery, palace intrigue and ill-fated romances of the Montagues and Capulets in the wake of the young lovers’ tragic fate.
