TVLine has an exclusive clip from a feature on Reign‘s Season 1 DVD — on sale Sept. 23 — documenting “The Making of a Queen,” in which executive producer Laurie McCarthy and star Adelaide Kane explain how they brought the historical icon to life.

“I did a bunch of research just to get a vague sense of what kind of woman she was, and she was really quite remarkable,” Kane says in the clip. “She spoke many languages, she played instruments, she was a sportswoman, she hunted and rode — and played golf, which is kind of cool.”
