I’m back with another incredible guest for this episode of Reign, and I can’t lie, I think she is one of the coolest people in the world, it’s Tessa Thompson!
I caught up with Tessa IRL in London to talk about the third installment of the Creed movies, where she plays Bianca opposite Michael B. Jordan’s Adonis. Michael, or Mike as she calls him, directed Creed III, too!
You will have seen Tessa before if you’ve ever seen Westworld, the Thor movies, or Men In Black: International. Her back...
Hello my babes, and welcome back to another STUNNING episode of Reign.
In this episode, I chat to Kathryn Newton, who you might remember from her roles in Big Little Lies, The Society, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri - but you’ve probably seen her in tonnes of other things because she has been working as an actor since the age of FOUR!
I was lucky enough to sit down with Kathryn ahead of the premiere of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, while she was in London. Fun fact: she...

It’s the second birthday of the Reign podcast - Happy Birthday to us! Thanks for being here! So, to celebrate I wanted to welcome back one of the podcast’s very first guests, Madelyn Cline.

Now Kate is BACK with the ‘Knives Out’ sequel,...
I am BEYOND EXCITED that we are joined by my OG Idol, Billie Piper, who made the first album I ever bought - fun fact!
Believe it or not, Billie first burst into our lives 25 years ago - so this is technically the Silver Jubilee of Queen Billie, which should be a national holiday, right? As a 15 year old popstar, Billie became the youngest person ever to go straight to number one with the eternal bop, Because We Want To before going on to land two more number one singles with Girlfriend and...
Today we are joined by Chloë Grace Moretz and this episode is all about setting personal boundaries, stopping people pleasing, letting go of people who no longer serve YOU and saying “f**k it!” Now that’s the spirit!
Believe it or not but Chloë has been acting since the age of 5, and now at 25 years old has already got 50 acting credits on her CV (talk about booked and busy!) including the epic ‘Kick-Ass’ movies, the chilling ‘Carrie’, the comedy hit, ‘Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising’ and the...

This special episode is a reminder, in the face of so much hateful rhetoric from government officials, that refugees need our allyship, not our prejudice.
Today we are joined by one of the most inspirational people I have ever met, Yusra Mardini who has overcome what are unimaginable obstacles for most of us, but which are daily obstacles for so many fleeing prejudice and war the world over.
In March 2011 when civil war broke out in Syria, Yusra - trained by her father - had dreams of...
Today we are joined by Ophelia Lovibond! This chat has everything - from a discussion of prosthetic penises to her Mum’s love for a willy montage, to tackling a very serious and meaningful topic: the need for bystanders to safely step in during moments of sexual harrassment - both verbally and physically - after Ophelia stepped in to prevent another woman being upskirted on the tube.
The conversation was prompted when we discussed the sexist media treatment of Carrie Johnson, who Ophelia...
Today we are joined by the self-made pop sensation, Madison Beer!
(TW: this episode references suicide and suicidal thoughts)
Madison has amassed a jaw dropping 4.2 billion streams across her catalogue globally since she was discovered by Justin Beiber at the age of 13, when he posted a clip of her singing Etta James on his Instagram.

But that never stopped Madison,...

I have LOVED Lena Dunham since her break-out show, Girls, so I am so excited we are joined by her today!
In case you haven’t watched it, Girls - which was written by and starring Lena - followed four best pals as they navigated boys, friendships, sexuality and their careers. Lena won multiple Golden Globes, a BAFTA, and received a tonne of Emmy nominations for her work, which became a game-changing representation of women on screen.

Abigail Cowen, the star of Netflix's ‘Fate: The Winx Saga’ joins us for the latest episode of Reign and excuse me whilst I geek out about one of my favourite shows.

The incredible Zoey Deutch is my guest on this episode of Reign!
I caught up with Zoey fresh from the success of her latest movie, Not Okay. The movie follows Zoey’s character, Danni Sanders who in desperate attempt to impress a guy (played by Teen Wolf’s Dylan O’Brien) and find fame, fakes being part of a terrorist attack. The satirical black comedy is a MUST see - so go straight to Disney+ after listening to this episode and watch it if you haven’t already.
Zoey’s career started when...
