Adelaide Kane Reveals Her Favorite Frary Scene From 'Reign'

Adelaide Kane Reveals Her Favorite Frary Scene From 'Reign'

Let’s face it, Mary and Francis on Reign had a love story for the history books (if only, it was true history…).

When JJJ spoke with star Adelaide Kane, we had to find out what her favorite scenes were between the two lovebirds.

The sweetest scene for her? When Mary told Francis she was pregnant.

“[It was] just before she miscarried,” she shared. “I think that it was incredibly sweet. They had been waiting for so long and there was just so much pressure on them.”

Adelaide adds, “He had that line where he says that he didn’t want to get her pregnant because we’re married, but he wanted them to get pregnant because he loved her. Her being able to to tell him that she was pregnant with his child in that moment, was just a really sweet moment.”

Spoiler alert! There’s a Frary scene tonight for the series finale, so get ready for that!

Adelaide Kane Totally 'Creeped' On Rachel Skarsten When She Joined 'Reign'

Adelaide Kane Totally 'Creeped' On Rachel Skarsten When She Joined 'Reign'

This is one of JJJ‘s favorite friendship stories ever!

We all know that on-screen in Reign, Adelaide Kane and Rachel Skarsten are bitter enemies, but in real life they really are BFFs.

Rachel is one of my best friends now, and I remember her coming on at a time when we had lost a few of the girls [ladies in waiting],” Adelaide remembers, in our exclusive interview with her. “I was just so excited to have another women on set, because we just had so many men.”

After it was announced that Rachel would be joining the series as Elizabeth I, Adelaide was so excited.

“I had already creeped her on Twitter and Instagram and thought she looked really fun and I was really keen on develop a friendship with her,” she says. “I had reached out to her on Twitter to welcome her to the show and then she was on set and I was so nervous that she wouldn’t like me or want to be friends with me.”

It’s a fear that many of us get when we meet new people — that they won’t like us in return.

Adelaide actually felt the same way: “I was just bullied a lot in school and I get so nervous around other women. But we just ended up hitting if off and it turned into us being the best of friends.”

When we talked of fans calling the twosome Radelaide, Adelaide admits that loves it!

“It’s super cute that the fans call us that,” she said. “I also take credit for coining #Rachface. All of her random facial expressions that she insists on posting (laughs). She has such an expressive face and a big personality and i just hash tagging it. Now all the fans have just started picking it up. It’s amazing.”

'Reign's Adelaide Kane Plays Queen For A Day & This Is Her First Act

'Reign's Adelaide Kane Plays Queen For A Day & This Is Her First Act

Adelaide Kane played a Queen for four seasons long on Reign, so she knows just a little bit about running a country.

When JJJ had the opp to ask her about what her actual first act as a Queen would be, she had the more brilliant answer:

“If I was a queen back in those days, I probably would’ve had really good sanitation practices put in place.”

YES!

She adds, “Taking a nod from the Roman sewer system and there are hot springs in Scotland, too, so just move everyone to a castle there with the hot springs so everyone can bathe regularly and reduce all that illness. I think that would’ve been my life’s work to make sure everyone had proper sanitation and knew how not to get the plague and die.”

But what if Mary was a Queen in this time and had herself a Twitter?

Adelaide didn’t have to think long about what her first tweet would be.

“Oh, either ‘I love Francis’ with a heart emoji, or ‘I am the queen of Scotland and you will obey me!’,” she said.

“She had two speeds (laughs). ‘I am the rightful queen of Scotland’ or ‘I love Francis’,” Adelaide adds. “Even on Facebook, her relationship status would be set to ‘in a relationship with Francis II’.”

Adelaide Kane Learned Something New on 'Reign' in Almost Every Episode (Exclusive)

Adelaide Kane Learned Something New on 'Reign' in Almost Every Episode (Exclusive)

Adelaide Kane learned a lot from playing Mary, Queen of Scots on Reign.

She also learned a lot from the show about history in general — like where forks actually came from, and that Scotland actually does have earthquakes.

“There were a few times that certain storylines came up and I had to stop and say that that couldn’t have been true,” Adelaide told JJJ exclusively. “There was no way that those things could’ve been true. But then I would actually look it up and do the research.”

She did a lot of research when the show first started, too.

“I did a bunch of research when we first started shooting because I wanted to be informed, and then I took my cues from the script moving on. Every now and again, I’d be ‘Nah, that can’t be true. There’s no way that happened’. But they did!”

She adds, “There was a story about Scotland having an earthquake and I thought, ‘no, Scotland doesn’t have earthquakes’, but they did, and they do. I checked it out and it was 100% real. Scotland might not be on fault lines but they do have earthquakes. It’s super weird.”

One of the big things that Adelaide discovered in her research was that Catherine de Medici is responsible for forks.

“I thought that forks had been around forever, but they were actually introduced by Catherine de Medici into the French culture. She was a huge influence in arts and culture, and brought a lot of things over from Italy. It was all like a ‘huh, what do ya know?’ moment. I was wrong and I know nothing (laughs).”

Adelaide Kane Added This Trait To Mary on 'Reign' & We Bet You Never Noticed

Adelaide Kane Added This Trait To Mary on 'Reign' & We Bet You Never Noticed

As fans of Reign, we think that we know pretty much everything about the series and our favorite monarch, Mary, Queen of Scots.

But after talking with star Adelaide Kane, JJJ realizes we actually didn’t.

After dishing to us that she would’ve gotten rid of the rape storyline in season two (“That was hellacious, so I would’ve taken that out,” she says), Adelaide revealed that she gave Mary a little trait that we didn’t pick up on.

“After [that], I consciously decided to give Mary a nervous tick. It’s whenever she’s really, really nervous about keeping it together or when her emotions are running high or when she felt threatened, she would rub her insignia ring. It’s almost like a post traumatic stress reflex.”

She adds, “I would rub my rings and I established that in season two. Any times in really high stress, that’s what I would do as a nervous tick. It was more a subtle thing that I would do for me as a subconscious kind of marker.”

“I don’t know if the fans picked up on that or not, or even if I was as consistent with it as I wanted to be. But it’s just a little thing and choice I made for her,” Adelaide shares. “That kind of experience sticks with you for your entire life and I didn’t want to just leave it by the wayside when we wrapped that up. That’s something that will be a part of her forever and I wanted to keep it and did it for the remainder of the show.”

That storyline was a very ripping one and to just let it go wouldn’t be right, and Adelaide agrees.

“It was just really important for me to honor that storyline and the importance of it in the show as a whole. I wouldn’t be surprised if nobody noticed it.”

The Reign series finale airs TOMORROW @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

Reign's Adelaide Kane Reveals The Inspiring Things She Learned From Playing Mary, Queen of Scots

Reign's Adelaide Kane Reveals The Inspiring Things She Learned From Playing Mary, Queen of Scots

There are a lot of lessons to be learned in Reign – so so many, and the one star Adelaide Kane took away from the series was such a good one.

JJJ spoke to Adelaide ahead of the series finale of the show, and she revealed just what she learned from playing the Queen of Scots and how she applies it in her everyday life.

“How to take care of myself, so that I could show up to work happy and healthy every day,” she shared as the number one thing she learned. “Just managing a schedule and learning how to balance my eating habits, and working out, and socializing on top of work without burning myself out.”

Adelaide admits it didn’t come easy: “It took me a couple of years to get a handle on it, but just learning to take time for myself when I needed it and prioritizing sleep above everything is the most important thing. It’s no one’s business if i’m not being social – it’s my own. If i need to go home straight after work and do my work for the next day and have a cup of tea and go to bed, then that’s what I need to do and there’s no shame in that.”

Mary had a lot on her plate when ruling an entire country, not unlike Adelaide when she’s balancing everything in her career, social life and more.

“Just learning to schedule everything, and giving myself a break,” she adds. “I don’t have to be everything all the time. If I’m too tired to work out on my day off, I probably should for my health, but it’s okay if I don’t. Just being a more lenient with myself.”

“There’s just so much pressure on women to just be everything,” she shared. “You have to be hardworking and good at your job and then you also have to be really social and maintain a relationship and look after your body and eat right and to be beautiful, and smart, and talented — there’s so much pressure and you don’t have to be all those things.”

The biggest lesson of all? “It’s okay to not be all those things.”

TELL JJJ: What are the lessons you learned from Mary while watching Reign?

Reign's Adelaide Kane Isn't Actually Related To Mary, Queen of Scots (Exclusive)

Reign's Adelaide Kane Isn't Actually Related To Mary, Queen of Scots (Exclusive)

One of the big things we knew about Adelaide Kane when Reign first started is that she was somehow related to the actual Mary, Queen of Scots.

However, she actually isn’t.

Adelaide cleared up all of that when JJJ spoke to her yesterday.

While she had thought the tartan on her mother’s side was Royal Stuart, it’s actually Stuart of Bute, instead. The tartans are actually quite similar, so we can definitely see if one got confused (see below).

“I was misinformed years ago when I said the tartan was Royal Stuart, but it’s actually the Stewart of Bute tartan,” Adelaide shared with us. “They’re related, but they’re not the same line. It was an error on my part.”

She adds, laughing about it, “The way I see it is that since they are related, I wasn’t entire full of it, but I was…because I didn’t do the proper research behind it.”

Adelaide also told us about researching her family tree with her uncle and finding out all sorts of things.

“It’s interesting because I have a friend who’s descended from an old King of Scots, Robert the Bruce; it’s crazy. All these royal blood lines just pop up in the most interesting places. That’s just what happens as the world expands and people colonize. It’s remarkable that we can track that genealogy and trace it back to hundreds of years.”

Stay tuned for more from our interview with Adelaide!
