reign-360x218

The “Acts of War” episode of Reign had ended with an unprecedented call from Adelaide Kane, who appealed to the victims of sexual assault and reassured them that they would be heard, they would regain their pride, that terrible things happen in life, but they must not define anyone.

The episode quickly ignited debates on whether the scene containing the sexual assault on Mary, the Queen of Scots (played by Adelaide Kane in the TV series) was appropriate. But the producers of the episode stood their ground, explaining that they did it to spread awareness about rape victim blaming.
