Is Mary finally ready to move on from Francis? It certainly looks that way. 

EW has confirmed that Will Kemp has been cast on Reign as Lord Darnley, who’s based on the real-life English nobleman who “sought to become the second husband of Mary Queen of Scots,” according to his official character description. Danley is also described as: “Breezily confident, charming and warm, he was born with a blood-claim of his own to the English throne and a wildly ambitious mother whose love hinges entirely on his ability to secure a crown.”

Kemp is currently set to appear in three episodes.

Reign airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
