It’s been less than a month since Reign ended its run on The CW, but series star Adelaide Kane, who played Queen Mary of Scotland has already lined up some upcoming roles.
When Reign began, Queen Mary of Scotland (Adelaide Kane) returned to French Court. She was betrothed to Prince Francis (Toby Regbo). The two had met as children and were promised to each other in marriage. Francis’ mother Queen Catherine (Megan Follows) worried about the match after her trusted adviser Nostradamus predicted that a marriage between Mary and Francis would lead to Francis’ death. The couple did eventually wed. But the union was short lived as Francis suffered from an illness before he was killed trying to protect Mary. Since Francis’ death, Mary has contended with treachery from those wanting to overthrow her. After the death of her close friend Lola at the hands of Mary’s cousin Queen Elizabeth (Rachel Skarsten) of England, who ordered Lola’s execution, Mary vowed that she’d rule over England as well as Scotland.
But with everything going on in her life (including the recent birth of her son), Queen Mary was gracious enough to take time from her schedule to speak with me. Read below to find out what Queen Mary had to say about her reign and what it means to be a queen. She is an intelligent woman of grace and beauty.
