Queen of hearts? We sure think so. A normal day in the life of 23-year-old Adelaide Kane means waking up, stepping into a couture ball gown, and time-traveling back to France in the year 1557. Sounds like a fairy tale, right? Not quite! The Scottish-Australian beauty, who landed the role of the infamously fiery Mary, Queen of Scots, on the new CW series Reign (think Game of Thrones meets Gossip Girl), works incredibly hard on set to do the sovereign justice.
“When I first read the script, something about the character resonated with me,” Adelaide explains. “She’s trying to make her way in a very difficult world full of politics and sexism. She’s stubborn, she’s impatient, she’s flawed—but she’s strong.” And for the actress, it’s about more than just stepping into a skin and then shedding it: “You end up giving a little piece of yourself to the character you play, and you take a piece of the character for yourself,” she says. Adelaide was cast alongside the next generation of game-changing, swoon-worthy TV stars (hello, Toby Regbo and Torrance Coombs!).
And as if playing a royal on television weren’t enough, off camera the starlet is gardening, dreaming of studying psychology, and using Rosetta Stone for French lessons. “There aren’t enough hours in the day!” she says, laughing. “I want to do it all. I want to know about everything.” Sounds ambitious, but if anyone can do it, it’s Adelaide. (Source)
