The CW's breakout hit historical drama Reign has cast Mary, Queen of Scots's mother! Amy Brenneman, who you may recognize from Private Practice, has booked the role.
"Yep,it's true," confirmed Amy on Twitter, "Off to a wardrobe fitting to play the badass, Marie de Guise, on [Reign]. Watch out, [Adelaide Kane], mama's coming!" It sounds like Amy's well equipped to play one of history's biggest bossladies.
In real life, Marie de Guise served as Mary's Queen Regent (a concept Game of Thrones fans will be very familiar with) until her death in 1560, ruling Scotland until Mary came of age. Given this, and given Marie's confirmed badassery, we're sure she'll be a force to be reckoned with in the French court!
