Like father, like bastard son!
Though she's entered into a pretty scandalous (and steamy!) affair with King Henry (Alan Van Sprang) on the CW's new hit drama Reign, lady-in-waiting Kenna (Caitlin Stasey) will actually be spending quality time with his son Bash (Torrance Coombs), also a ladies' man at the castle, in tomorrow night's all-new episode.
In our exclusive sneak peek from "Kissed," Bash and Kenna come together at a lavish event to commiserate about his father's womanizing ways and mindg ames. So is Bash ready to put his feelings for Mary (Adelaide Kane), who is engaged to his half-bother Prince Francis (Toby Regbo), behind him?
"Hard to image a more uncomfortable conversation about one's father." Truer words, Bash. Truer words! "He's playing you, he likes to play and he likes to win," Bash tells Kenna, who is complaining about Henry ignoring her. "But know this about him: a victory without effort is worse than defeat."
So is there something brewing between Bash and Kenna? Not quite! Of their pair's first exchange, director Brad Silberling says, "It's like college, late night conversations where everyone lets their hair down...You have these great, interesting characters who don't always get to sit and have a moment of intersection. That's the thing I loved about that. But no, it wasn't essentially made to stoke that fire."
And executive producer Laurie McCarthy adds, "I liked that notion of two brothers who live in the same home and with a father who is a player. They're all vying for the same women really, because the king can do anything he wants, he can get anything he wants."
Reign airs tomorrow at 9 p.m. on the CW.
