tahmoh penikett reign guest star the cw 'Reign' adds 'Battlestar Galactica' alum Tahmoh Penikett as sexy noblemanAs the first season of The CW’s “Reign” draws to a close, you’ll see a familiar face among the royals: “Battlestar Galactica’s” Tahmoh Penikett, who will guest star as a nobleman visiting French Court.

According to E! Online, the “Star-Crossed” veteran’s character, John, is more than meets the eye — he “also happens to be a mercenary for hire.”

“Reign” star Adelaide Kane tells Zap2it that the final episodes of Season 1 — culminating in an epic May 15 finale — will be bananas. “There’s so much going on in the upcoming episodes,” she says. “We have battles and returning heroes and death and destruction, and the Darkness still hasn’t been dealt with yet. We have so much going on in this show.”

You can watch a promo for the drama facing the French royals throughout the rest of the season at the E! link above. “Reign” airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
