Mary doesn’t look all too pleased with Francis in this new still from tonight’s all-new Reign.
In “Drawn & Quartered”, in the aftermath of the plague, a powerful lord (Craig Parker) discovers that Mary (Adelaide Kane) was responsible for the death of his son and demands vengeance, testing the loyalties of Mary, Francis (Toby Regbo) and Catherine (Megan Follows). Francis returns to the castle with Lola (Anna Popplewell) and their newborn son, creating tension with Mary.
Adelaide Kane and her ladies in waiting try to keep warm while playing in the snow in this new still from Reign.
In “Toy Soldiers”, when Mary’s (Kane) uncle, the Duke of Guise (Gil Darnell), arrives in France with devastating news about her mother, Mary and Francis (Toby Regbo) realize they are torn between putting their own countries first or saving their marriage. With the English throne in jeopardy, King Henry (Alan Van Sprang) hatches an elaborate plan that will end in disaster.
In “Kissed”, When England’s armies threaten Scotland’s borders, Mary (Kane) asks King Henry (Alan Van Sprang) for help, but he refuses. Tomas (Manolo Cardona), the son of the King of Portugal, proposes marriage to Mary, promising her aid against England if she’ll abandon Francis and turn to Tomas instead.
“I’ve actually been sitting in the British Library in London,” Anna recently told Glamour mag about studying up on 16th century France. “I have my research process down to a science: I read a chapter of a history book, then I watch an episode of Gossip Girl on my iPad!”

Adelaide on the costumes: “Spanx are a piece of cake compared to a corset! I actually had to spread out my lunch into three small meals because if I ate too much at once, my stomach would hurt. On the plus side, you almost don’t need to act. The corset helps you carry yourself and walk in a different way all on its own.”
Anna on filming on location: “Celina and I are from England, Adelaide and Caitlin are from Australia, and Jenessa is from Canada. So we were all far from home and went on amazing touristy adventures in Dublin, including a visit to the Guinness factory. I like Guinness, but it’s too filling!”
Jenessa on royal dreams: “I wasn’t really the princess type—I actually wanted to be Aladdin, not Jasmine. I always used to look up to the male characters in movies because they were the ones in on all the action. But these days, I think there are stronger female heroes on-screen.”
Caitlin on her favorite royal: “Cleopatra. She was such a powerful woman.”
The 21-year-old actor plays Prince Francis in the CW pilot, who is thoughtful and very nervous about inheriting his throne. He doesn’t know if an arranged marriage is what is best for him, and is having an affair.
“I’m dressed like the medieval matrix,” Toby wrote on Twitter.
