    Ep 76: Madelyn Cline

    Ep 76: Madelyn Cline

    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. We first caught up after the debut season of Outer Banks aired on Netflix, and SO much has happened since then!

    Madelyn has recently starred in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, and with the third season of Outer Banks around the corner, I wanted to chat to her about where life has taken her over the last two years.

    We chat about that ‘overnight’ fame she found during the pandemic, and how that has translated into real life in 2023. We talk about self-care, learning to forgive ourselves, saying NO to things that don’t fulfil us, and dealing with change. Which is something I have always found hard to deal with - you?

    There’s so much in this episode, and it’s definitely made me think about putting myself first more often!

    So I hope you enjoy it, and as always if you want to get in touch I’m @JoshSmithHosts on socials - I love to chat to you! And don’t forget you can catch some of the video highlights from this episode over on my YouTube channel, just search Reign with Josh Smith.

    Ep 75: Joy Sunday

    Ep 75: Joy Sunday

    Today you are invited to the Reign holiday party because this is the final episode of the year! So get your drink of choice poured and prepare to listen to Joy Sunday who is starring in the biggest show on the planet right now, Netflix’s reboot of The Addams Family, ‘Wednesday’.

    If you haven’t watched Wednesday yet, the show follows the infamous Wednesday Addams (Jenna Ortega) as she joins Nevermore, an eerie institute for society’s outsiders and meets her new nemesis the Queen Bee Bianca, played by Joy. What ensues is a show dripping in drama, mystery and rivalry so it’s no surprise ‘Wednesday’ has amassed over a billion watch hours in the first three weeks of its release and has become the second most watched english speaking show on Netflix - EVER!

    Joining us fresh from the show’s unprecedented success and on her podcast debut (we are honoured!) Joy tells me about how the show arrived at a tough point in her career, the intense filming process in Romania, and how playing Bianca empowered her in real life, too. Don’t worry Joy also spills the tea on *that* iconic fencing scene, the season finale AND those contact lenses too…

    Joy also talks about her self love journey, how journaling has influenced her life, how the ‘Wednesday’ cast have come together to form anoffscreen family, and how she has always found the strength to keep going and never give up on her dreams. Plus there is a great rule to live by, dug from the depths of Joy’s teen journal which I absolutely love and know you will too.

    I loved talking to Joy so I hope you love this episode! And as this is the final episode of the year I just wanted to say THANK YOU for listening to Reign, whether this is your first episode or one of many you have listened to, it’s so great to have you in the Reign family. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season and just remember in the new year and beyond, you have the power to reign over your life and don't forget it!

    Ep 74: Kate Hudson

    Ep 74: Kate Hudson

    SCREAMS! Today we are joined by a true queen of Hollywood, Kate Hudson.

    Kate has such an iconic back catalogue of movies from her rom-com era, ‘How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days’ alongside Mathew McConaughey (one of the best onscreen duos of all time - AM I RIGHT OR AM I RIGHT?!?) to ‘Bride Wars’ with fellow queen, Anne Hathaway. But it was for her scene stealing turn in ‘Almost Famous’ that Kate won a Golden Globe and was nominated for an Oscar.
    Now Kate is BACK with the ‘Knives Out’ sequel, ‘Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery’ which is landing on Netflix on 23rd December. Daniel Craig returns as the super sleuth, Benoit Blanc to investigate a murder which occurs after a tech billionaire invites his friends to his private Greek island. It’s got twists, it’s got turns and Kate stars as the tone deaf, model turned questionable entrepreneur, Birdie alongside former Reign guest, Madelyn Cline, Ed Norton and Janelle Monáe.

    Sitting down with one of my idols was even better than I could have imagined. In this episode Kate gets very honest and tells me about the time she had to truly face herself and do that tricky self-work.

    Kate also shares some wise lessons that she has learnt from one of the great teachers in her life, her mother Goldie Hawn. It’s stuff that I think we all need to hear! Kate also talks to be about the changing representation of women on screen and how much further we need to go.

    If you have missed any of the episodes of Reign Season six go check them out now - we’ve been joined by some truly inspiring people from Chloe Grace Moretz to Billie Piper. I hope you keep on listening and finding the power to Reign in your own lives. If you love this episode, please get in touch (follow me across social media @joshsmithhosts), I love hearing from you.

    Ep 73: Billie Piper

    Ep 73: Billie Piper

    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 Day & Night. How her hit, Honey 2 The Bee wasn’t ever a number one is still an injustice that haunts me until this day. But here we are…

    Billie then turned to acting with the comeback of Doctor Who starring as the Doctor’s assistant, Rose Tyler opposite Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant and The Secret Diary of A Call Girl. Billie even continued to set records with her new career path by winning all six of the possible best stage actress awards, including an Olivier award, for her stage debut in Yerma.

    Now Billie is back with the second season of the BAFTA nominated TV show, I Hate Suzie, which she co-created with Succession writer, Lucy Prebble. If you haven’t watched the first season of the show, it follows the former child star, Suzie Pickles as her life implodes when private images of her leak online. And let me tell you RIGHT NOW, the second season is just as good as the first with more twists and turns for our anti-hero, Suzie. I Hate Suzie Too is available on Sky Atlantic and streaming service NOW from 20 December.

    Today Billie joins us to talk about being a horny dancer (same here!) - tis the season, after all - and how exploring anxiety and mental health on I Hate Suzie has impacted her own well being.

    Billie also opens up about how seeing her 14 year old son grow up has made her reflect further on her own teenage stardom and the advice she wishes she could go back and give her popstar self. She also shares some great words about balance and pressure which I think we all need to hear and will relate to, and about finding a new level of confidence turning 40 this year.

    Billie Piper is still THE coolest person on the planet in my mind, so I hope you love this chat just as much as me as it really shows just how this icon has managed to stay relevant for a quarter of a century across so many disciplines.

    If you have missed any of the episodes of Reign Season six go check them out now - we’ve been joined by some truly inspiring people from Chloe Grace Moretz to Lena Dunham. I hope you keep on listening and finding the power to Reign in your own lives. If you love this episode, please get in touch (follow me across social media @joshsmithhosts), I love hearing from you.

    Ep 72: Chloë Grace Moretz

    Ep 72: Chloë Grace Moretz

    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 epic LGBTQIA+ movie, ‘The Miseducation of Cameron Post’.

    Now she is starring in the blockbuster new Amazon Prime Video TV show, ‘The Peripheral’. Adapted for the screen from William Gibson’s sci-fi novel, the show follows Chloë’s character Flynne, as she unearths through gaming, a connection to an alternative reality with a dark future. The drama is brilliant but you might get a headache trying to figure out WTAF is going on - if you are anything like me!

    I have also always admired Chloë’s advocacy for LGBTQIA+ rights and encouraging people to get out there and vote but I wasn’t quite prepared for how much I was going to love talking to Chloë. Buckle up for a lot of laughter and some great life lessons in this episode!

    Today Chloë talks about growing up in the entertainment industry and the amount of reverse ageism and sexism she has faced in her career to date. Now, firmly in her own power and voice, Chloë also shares some amazing words on building boundaries and letting go of ‘people pleasing,' and relationships that no longer serve you. That is something I have ALWAYS struggled with so this turned into quite the therapy session for me, so I hope it helps you too!

    We also talk about the sheer power of Miley Cryus’s song ‘The Climb’ - it’s one of the great underrated classics of our time, let’s be honest - and Chloë shares how she is a certified gamer in real life too, who loves to, ‘f**k s**t up!’ Watch out Super Mario!

    I love Chloë’s new ‘f**k it,’ ethos for life so I hope it also inspires you to let go, and do what is right for YOU in every given situation.

    If you have missed any of the episodes of Reign Season six go check them out now - we’ve been joined by Stranger Things star, Natalia Dyer, Young Royals stars Edvin Ryding and Omar Rudberg, Lena Dunham and many more inspirational people. I hope you keep on listening and finding the power to Reign in your own lives. If you love this episode, please get in touch (follow me across social media @joshsmithhosts), I love hearing from you.

    Ep 71: Omar Rudberg

    Ep 71: Omar Rudberg

    You wait for one ‘Young Royals’ star to come on the podcast and TWO come on the podcast back to back! So get your crowns ready because today, we are joined by Simon himself, Omar Rudberg!

    In case you are new to the ‘Young Royals’ hype (lucky YOU, you have two epic seasons to binge for the very first time) the Swedish Netflix TV show follows Prince Wilhelm, played by Edvin Ryding, as he meets a new love interest, Simon when he is sent to boarding school. It is the LGBTQIA+ show we have long needed on our screens and it’s no wonder so many people have fallen in love with the show - myself included!

    Now, fresh from THAT season two cliffhanger, Omar joins us to talk about how the show’s intimate scenes have pushed him out of his comfort zone and made him find a whole new level of self love within himself and with his own body image. Isn’t that wonderful to hear?

    Omar also shares some powerful words about breaking down masculine stereotypes and how his amazing relationship with Edvin Ryding onscreen has empowered him off-screen too. It’s empowered him so much that Omar is not afraid to call out coffee breath when he smells it during kissing scenes. I couldn’t agree more!

    If you love ‘Young Royals’ and missed our last episode with Omar’s co-star, Edvin Ryding then run to the last episode to listen now! And if you love a LGBTQIA+ inclusive TV show and are ‘Heartstopper’ fans as well, last season we were joined by the show’s Joe Locke and Kit Connor, so check those podcast episodes too!

    As someone who has always had a very up and down relationship with my own body image I really love what Omar has to say on the topic, so I hope you find this episode just as comforting as I do. I also hope you keep on listening and finding the power to Reign in your own lives. And if you love this episode, please get in touch (follow me across social media @joshsmithhosts), I love hearing from you. Love, Josh xxx
