  • Very nice. I can’t even off the top of my head think of who might have made a better casting, so great.

    I’m especially looking forward to Amy’s Marie putting Catherine in her place.

  • I’ve loved Amy since Judging Amy. Not a fan of Reign, but I hope her new show gets picked up. Also wish they’d release Judging Amy on DVD.

  • Well, I’ll be the first….I think it’s terrible casting. She looks far too old too play the role. Also, her performances on PP always seemed false and very forced to me. I actually love Reign, and I’m sad they didn’t cast someone else.

  • She definitely looks the part, but I’m curious to see how well she sells the costume drama vibe.
    It’s all too easy to come across as a modern actor in a fancy outfit (this is my main issue with the Kenna character).

  • This show is surprisingly good, I didn’t expect it but I’m hooked. I think Amy will be a good addition.
