Adelaide Kane Reveals Her Absolute Favorite Costumes on 'Reign' (Exclusive)

Adelaide Kane Reveals Her Absolute Favorite Costumes on 'Reign' (Exclusive)

It’s been a full week since the series finale of Reign aired and JJJ still isn’t over that — we’re still crying about it!

However, we do have all four seasons on Netflix now, which makes us feel just a little better — and so does star Adelaide Kane talking about all of Mary’s costumes she wore over the series.

“Her coronation dress was fantastic — the red and gold with the massive train,” Adelaide told us in our recent interview with her. “All of her wedding dresses and the jewelry.”

One of the major costumes that really stood out to her was everything about her wedding look to Darnley, even down to the shoes.

“The veil for that was so incredibly heavy,” Adelaide revealed. “I had to drape it over my arm and carry it around in between shots because there was so much strain on my neck from it.”

“The shoes for that were so beautiful. They were stunning, from this Italian designer who I can’t remember. But they were slingback kitten heels and there were crowns on the front of the shoes that were stitched in, with crystals and pearls.”

You might’ve noticed a shift in the costumes too, which worked perfectly with the show.

“After we moved away from the vintage and couture dresses, and started to do custom builds, there was a more cohesive thread, fashion wise throughout the show. All of her stuff was so stunning that I can’t think of any I didn’t like.”

There are some that Adelaide did like more than others though — “Anything with her leather leggings, when she was riding around I really loved. It was just a little bit more comfortable (laughs).”

Reign's Adelaide Kane Reveals What Could've Happened in Season 5, If There Was One

Reign's Adelaide Kane Reveals What Could've Happened in Season 5, If There Was One

We still haven’t come to terms with the fact that Reign is officially over.

We know we’ll still have our box sets and Netflix, but we really want a season five.

When JJJ spoke to Adelaide Kane, she echoed our wishes, dreaming up what could of been.

“I would’ve loved to seen Queen Elizabeth I ushering in the golden age,” Adelaide shared with us. “And the age of exploration with her, and maybe see how Henry and Charles situation played out. Catherine de Medici and more of her scheming.”


And what about Mary? There was a huge time jump, another marriage, and more.

“For Mary, raising her child and dodging all that political climate that she was in” she adds. “She was driven out of Scotland when her child was two years old. She abdicated and then fled to England, so we had two good years of Mary being a mother, but also her fighting the Scottish government and Protestantism, as she was a catholic in Scotland.”

Adelaide added even more storylines that could’ve possibly went into a season six, seven and eight.

“After she fled, she was captured and then incarcerated for the next 20 years of her life. There was so much more to explore with her.”

“Also, I’d get to be with a baby for more than two episodes. I love babies,” Adelaide gushed. “Every time any baby was on set, I asked them to let me know on a different unit so I could go and play and see them.”

TELL JJJ: What would’ve you liked to see happen in a season five of Reign?

The Final Frary Scene in 'Reign's Series Finale Was Shot Before Toby Regbo Left The Show

The Final Frary Scene in 'Reign's Series Finale Was Shot Before Toby Regbo Left The Show

Reign said goodbye last night with a beautiful Francis and Mary montage that made us melt into a puddle of goo.

The scene happens just after Mary is beheaded and she wakes up, lying next to Francis in her afterlife.

“When one looks back on Mary’s life it seemed so tragic, but there was so much joy in it,” showrunner Laurie McCarthy shared with TVGuide. “Historically she was said to find happiness and friendship even in her years of captivity. I wanted to celebrate where the show began, which is with a love story.”

She adds about including this moment in the final episode, “I felt that in her darkest moment that was a place her mind might go.”

“The scene was filmed before Toby Regbo left the series – we shot it and just held it not knowing when the end would come but knowing what it would be,” Laurie says.

If you missed it, be sure to read just which scene star Adelaide Kane thought was the sweetest one between the couple.

Rachel Skarsten took her final bow as Queen Elizabeth I on tonight’s series finale of Reign.

Like us all, she’s going to miss portraying Elizabeth The Great on the small screen.

In a short and sweet letter, Rachel says goodbye to Elizabeth, and the amazing Reign fans.

Read her letter below, only on JJJ:

“It has been my great pleasure and genuine honor to be a part of Reign these past seasons and to play such an iconic, powerful, complex and brilliant woman. May we continue to have shows that showcase women such as these.

To be embraced by the cast as one of their own, brought in to the CW family and most beautifully by you, the fans is of significance to me that is difficult to articulate. There really are no words sometimes for experiences as beautiful as this. Just gratitude. Thanks for loving Reign as much as I do.

Rach”

Adelaide Kane Had A Lot of Emotions While Filming the Final 'Reign' Scenes

Adelaide Kane Had A Lot of Emotions While Filming the Final 'Reign' Scenes

Are you glued to the television screen watching Reign right now like we are? Good!

There are just moments to go until the final moments and star Adelaide Kane prepped us for them.

“There were so many emotions on that day, because not only was it the last scene, but it was the last day of shooting too,” she revealed to us during our interview. “I thought it was a perfect way to wrap it up, because we actually had to. There wasn’t any real option to leave anyone sort of hanging.”


Obviously, there was much more to Mary’s story they could have told if they had had a fifth season.

“I was really sad that the show was ending, but happy and grateful that so many of the crew and cast turned up for that scene,” Adelaide adds. “We’re all such a family after four years and so grateful for all of it. I don’t know how many women get this type of experience that I had with Reign, with being a lead on the show for four seasons and it was just such a wonderful show with such amazing people.”

The cast and crew’s bond was so tight, and Adelaide really does miss it all.

“It was bittersweet. I was really going to miss everyone who was there, and I do miss everybody,” she shared. “Not so much the cast (laughs), because they’re here in LA with me and I see them all the time. But I do miss all the crew and our sets and being in Toronto and being in that world.”

“It was just a really beautiful scene and beautiful day. It was a very emotive finale that I don’t think a lot of shows actually get, or a cast gets. Like a note of closure, even though it was a bit rushed.”

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!
