And might I say, she looks EXQUISITE!
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the gorgeous and talented Candis Cayne will play the Fairy Queen – “a magical and dangerous diety”– in the season two finale of the Syfy series The Magicians.
“I am so excited to be joining Syfy’s The Magicians as the highly-anticipated ‘Fairy Queen,'” Candis said in a statement. “It was so much fun transforming into this dark and mysterious character, and I cannot wait for fans to be immersed into her world and see how she affects Fillory!”
EW explains the episode:
You’ll recall that in last week’s episode, Margo struck a last-minute bargain with the Ambassador to the Fairies to bring magic back to the Well Spring so she could keep Eliot (Hale Appleman) alive in his duel against King Edri. Their demand? A royal child of the Whitespire–AKA Eliot and Fen’s unborn royal baby–to raise as a Fairy and teach it great knowledge and power. Margo may think she’ll be able to weasel her way out of the deal down the road, but something tells the Fairy Queen won’t be interested in any takesies backsides.
There’s still plenty of fish to fry before Margo’s big showdown with Fairy Queen, however. In next week’s all-new episode, she’ll struggle to keep her devastating trade under wraps, while Eliot attempts to win over his people. Meanwhile, Quentin (Jason Ralph) will help Julia (Stella Maeve) with her search, while Penny (Arjun Gupta) and Kady (Jade Tailor) find themselves caught between two magical factions.
Well, that all sounds VERY EXCITING. I don’t understand a lick of it, of course, but I think I might have to start watching, if for no other reason than to support Candis.
