For months, Adelaide Kane’s Mary, Queen of Scots has had to fend off threats against her life coming courtesy of her potential mother-in-law, Catherine de’ Medici (Megan Follows). And, in Thursday’s mid-season finale of “Reign”, Mary is going to find out why Catherine’s been so deadly determined to keep the pair apart. Nostradamus’ (Rossif Sutherland) prophecy — that Mary will cause the death of Catherine’s son, Prince Francis (Toby Regbo) — is something the young Queen will learn just as her wedding to her life-long fiance seems poised to take place. The Queen herself — Adelaide — addressed the upcoming reveal and how it will shake Mary, when AccessHollywood.com spoke to actress during a break from filming earlier this week.
AccessHollywood.com: We know that this week, Mary learns about the prophecy. How is she going to take the news?
She’s skeptical at first, but certain events take place in our mid-season finale that slowly bring her around to believing in Nostradamus’ powers of prophecy and visionary powers and I think she has a dawning horror that he might be right. … So I guess we’re gonna see her slowly come around to the fact that there might be a supernatural element, this element of prophecies… and you see her start to maybe question what she always thought she knew is true. I think it’s horrifying for her.
