Reign Will Kemp

TVLine Items: Reign Queen's New Man, James Remar Follows Path and More

Mary Queen of Scots is closing in on a new hubby.

Will Kemp (Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, 90210) will guest-star on Season 4 of Reign as Lord Darnley, the real-life English nobleman who would become Mary’s second husband, per out sister site Deadline.

As first reported by TVLine, Darnley has a blood-claim to the English throne and a “wildly ambitious mother whose love hinges entirely on his ability to secure a crown.” He hopes to become Mary’s spouse, a union which “could take down Elizabeth, giving [the couple] not just one nation, but two.”

Kemp is slated to appear in three episodes, with an option to become a series regular.

    So they are planning on making him an alcoholic as well. Considering the real Darnley was like that as well.

    Is The Path any good? I liked James Remar on SATC and Dexter.

    Well so this is the Mary’s son father. Thanks to him finally Mary will have an heir, the same that for Elizabeth I. This is ironic. Maybe Lord Darnley is a drunk, but at last he had a son and let a trace in the history. I was of Franvis until my balls. Really his story with Mary turned Reign in an horrible soap opera. Sometimes the villains are better than the bored heroes.
