Connie Britton wanted her character, Rayna Jaymes, to be killed off on Nashville.

Fans were heartbroken when Connie's character died, but when she was asked if she actually wanted to leave the show, she said yes.

"It was something that had been percolating over time, and there were lots of different reasons behind it. But my priority was really making sure that the timing was right. My priority has always been Nashville. So when the show was moved to CMT and we got these great new showrunners, I was [confident] the show would be in a good place. . . I feel like Nashville can go on indefinitely," she said.
