'Reign's' Megan Follows: 'Francis is long for the show but not long for the world'

Zap2it: How do you like playing the "wicked" Queen Catherine of France on "Reign" -- or is she so wicked?Megan Follows: I like it. It depends on your definition of wicked. She's a great part. She's powerful, and often when women are in powerful positions, they're called "wicked." She has to do a lot of surviving and negotiating to maintain her position.Zap2it: History tells us that her son Francis (Toby Regbo) eventually assumes the throne, but as the show begins, that hasn't happened yet. How much of Catherine's future depends on having a son as king?Megan Follows:That is her only future, her relationship to being the mother of the king, because being the wife of a king has not really guaranteed her any security.Zap2it: Her husband, King Henry II, isn't exactly a model spouse, so what kind of a marriage did they have?Megan Follows: No, he's not, although they had eight children, so obviously, whatever they... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/reigns-megan-follows-francis-is-long-for-the-show-but-not-long-for-the-world.html

'Reign' star on the kiss that heats up the show's love triangle

So far on "Reign," The CW's sexy retelling of the story of Mary Queen of Scots, Mary's affections have been directed towards Prince Francis, the man to whom she's been engaged since they were children. But on Thursday's (Nov. 14) episode, "A Chill in the Air," the love triangle promised on the show's posters finally comes to fruition and her flirtation with Francis' illegitimate half brother, Bash, gets very real.

"She always knew he was the man she was going to be with so she's told herself she loves him and all these things. They actually do seem to have a connection.

'Reign': A 'slightly different' artistic fashion blend fit for royalty

What's five centuries among friends? Especially when we're talking terrific fashion.In The CW's "Reign," the young Mary Stuart (Adelaide Kane) arrives in France for an arranged marriage to Prince Francis (Toby Regbo). Their wardrobes befit young royalty, but rather than the strictures of 16th-century court wear, with stiff frills and angular silhouettes, the costumes are an artistic blend of modern and period.When costume designer Meredith Markworth-Pollack began working on the show, the idea was to create, "something slightly different to the costume dramas we had seen so far, especially because of the demographic of The CW, and bring in the element of contemporary fashion."There are a few edicts, though. No petticoats, no tights for men and no hip rolls for women. Fashionable in the Elizabethan era, hip rolls were essentially cushions worn at the hips to make the waist look smaller.Lady-in-waiting Greer (Celina Sinden) wears what Markworth-Pollack describes as "by no means exactly period.
