Just Jared: Congratulations on the renewal for a second season of Reign! Did you celebrate?
Adelaide Kane: Oh yeah, definitely! The rest of the cast all went out that night. What’s funny is that I booked a flight to come out to LA, so I didn’t get to celebrate with the rest of the cast. But they told me on set before they told anyone else because they wanted me to tweet simultaneously with the leads of some of the other CW shows. It was all I could do not to tell everyone, and they let me announce it to the whole crew. So exciting!
JJ: How far into shooting are you?
AK: We’re still on season one. We’re currently shooting 119. Oh my gosh, three more episodes and then season one is done. I can’t believe it. It’s really gone by exceptionally quickly. It’s crazy. [JJ Note: Interview was completed on March 8]
JJ: What are you going to do during your hiatus?
AK: Who knows! I’m trying to get some work, trying to keep hustlin’. (laughs) If I get too much time off, I’m going to get bored, so I’m just auditioning, seeing if I can get a feature for the break. Other than that, I want to go to Thailand. I might visit my family. My cousin’s having a baby, so it’s very exciting. And I was thinking of going to New York or London and spending a couple of weeks there exploring the cities.
JJ: What’s your favorite thing to do in Toronto?
AK: Honestly, eat. Toronto has a really good food game. I have my favorite places that I go. They’ve got a bunch of really cool, hip bars. I live in a really kind of hipster area.
JJ: Do you have a favorite restaurant?
AK: I do, Gusto. Gusto 101 is my favorite restaurant in Toronto.
JJ: Do you have a favorite prop from set?
AK: I love when I get to write things because they gave me a calligraphy set. That’s super fun. I like my quill, my ink quill. It’s beautiful.
JJ: Did you know calligraphy beforehand? Did you just learn it on the spot?
AK: They gave me a big sketch pad and a bunch of modern quills and ink, and a bunch of different alphabets so I could pick out which one I like best. Just to practice with while I’m at home. They give me advanced notice if they want me to write anything important. I’ve got quite good at it actually!
We know we should be very concerned that, in this week’s fall finale of Reign, Mary finally learns about Nostradamus’ chilling prophecy. And we are.
But there’s just a little bit of bump-’n’-grind business left over from last episode, and happens to be overshadowing even the mystic’s ominous forecast of death in the palace: Did Mary and Francis actually have sex? As fans of the CW period drama know, there’s no such thing as a causal roll in the hay for the teen queen. While her betrothed is able to do as he pleases, her much touted “virtue” is the key to their countries’ alliance and a measure of her worth as a suitable wife. Could Francis’ gallantry in ending the castle’s siege have trumped it all? Read on for star Adelaide Kane‘s thoughts on the matter, as well as for a preview of how Thursday’s hour (9/8c) will unfold.
TVLINE | In the last episode, at the very end, Mary climbed into bed with Francis?! I was shocked.
[Laughs] I think a lot of people were. On Tumblr, on Twitter, all of the sites, fans had really mixed reactions… With something like that, that’s so important… you want to share that with somebody special and you want to be with someone who loves just you .You want it to be meaningful. [After the end of the siege,] in the heat of the moment, she went to him and thought, “If I can have this one thing, I would want to give it to you out of anybody else.” But it still remains debatable if they… They were mackin’, but you never know.
TVLINE | Will we find out in this next episode, what happened?
Yes, you will. Remember, they’ve been intimate before without crossing that final boundary.
TVLINE | In this episode, Mary finds out about Nostradamus’ prediction of death in the castle. How does she react?
It slowly dawns on her that perhaps Nostradamus’ predictions are correct. And then it’s a question of: Does she take what she wants and marry the man that she loves? Or does she continue to seek desperately for another option to spare him his life? It’s an incredibly hard decision.
TVLINE | Mary is always put in these positions with impossible outcomes.
Rock and a hard place. [Laughs] She’s just treading water all the time. Just when she thinks she’s in the clear, something else comes out of the blue, and she’s just managing the best that she can. She’s not a political creature, so she’s definitely learning as she goes.
