To kick off our very first Man Crush Monday I decided to go with a Canadian actor who stars on (in my opinion) the best new drama on TV, Reign. That’s right, our #MCM is Torrance Coombs who plays Prince Francis’ half-brother Sebastian on the show, which chronicles the rise to power of Mary Queen of Scots (think Gossip Girl meets Game of Thrones).
It just so happens I bumped into Torrance on a flight home from Las Vegas last week and not only was he so kind (even after I bugged him to take a selfie with me), he is just as striking in person as he is on TV. After sharing the pic of us together on social media, dozens of his fans began tweeting me asking about the encounter and I realized then how huge of a star he has become in such a short time since the show first aired in October. Thus, he has rightfully earned this week’s spot.
