The Last Kingdom season four arrived on Netflix in 2020 as fans said goodbye to some of the main characters. Actor Toby Regbo played the antagonistic lord Aethelred in the historical drama, and he was killed off in a dramatic scene. The star has just been cast in a new role and Express.co.uk has all you need to know about where he is now.

Where is Toby Regbo now?

The Last Kingdom is a popular Anglo-Saxon drama series inspired by real figures from that renowned time period.

Aethelred of Mercia was married to Aethelflaed (Millie Brady), the daughter of King Alfred (David Dawson), in the series.

He treated her appallingly and even plotted to have her killed, but she was able to fight back against him.

In the fourth season, Aethelred was injured in battle and his wife had to take over as leader.

On his deathbed, he realised all the pain he had caused his wife and made amends with her.

Sadly he was killed by his commander Eardwulf (Jamie Blackley), who had been plotting to overthrow him.

Although fans despised the character, they were gutted to see Regbo leave the historical drama.

Thankfully, they have been able to watch him in his other ventures and he has just landed a role in a popular fantasy series.

News has just been released confirming he has been cast as the character Jack in the Sky and Prime Video series, A Discovery of Witches.

The 29-year-old star said he was excited to be joining such a fantastic cast, and work will start on the new season soon.

He had joined the cast of The Last Kingdom in 2017 and played Aethelred in a total of 15 episodes.

Aethelred may have only been a recurring role, but he was one of the most memorable of the series.

In 2019, Regbo went on to star in the historical drama Medici: Masters of Florence.

He also played a young Albus Dumbledore in the 2018 film, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

A Discovery of Witches will be his next venture, but a release date has not yet been announced.

In September 2020, Regbo spoke to The Screen Chronicles about what it was like leaving The Last Kingdom.

He said he enjoyed being a part of the huge battle scene, seeing as his character had spent so much time “sitting on a throne”.

Following his injury in battle, Aethelred started to come to terms with his demons and Regbo said he was a “scared child” who did not want to die.

He said: “It was really nice to end on that quiet note, especially as when you are leaving a show it is kind of a death.

“It’s the end of something you have worked on for quite a long time, I love everyone who works on that show.

“Getting to say goodbye in that way, I was really grateful for that. If I was to die in that ditch, I wouldn’t have been able to say ‘bye everybody’.”

He admitted his character would have been “terrified” in his final moments, which is partly why he reconciled with Aethelflaed.

One fan had commented: “This guy is an outstanding actor. His death scenes in The Last Kingdom is the best death acting I’ve ever seen in Movies. I’m sure Toby will have a long career. All his scenes in The Last Kingdom as the King of Mercia were fantastic.”

Since the coronavirus lockdown, the star has taken up a passion for art and has been showcasing his drawings on social media.

He studied art at school but did not put his skills into practice until recently.

Commenting on his creativity, one fan said: “You certainly are a Renaissance Man. You are able to master it all.”

He has been keeping fans up to date with his other work projects and has posted plenty of behind the scenes shots from The Last Kingdom.

The actor was also due to star in the Game of Thrones prequel series, but the pilot was never picked up.

Needless to say, fans are excited to see him in his upcoming role as the adopted son of Diana (Teresa Palmer) and Matthew (Matthew Goode) in A Discovery of Witches.
