Get to Know 'The Wilds' Star Reign Edwards with These 10 Fun Facts! (Exclusive)

The second season of The Wilds is now streaming on Prime Video and we caught up with one of the show’s stars, Reign Edwards, to learn more about her.

If you haven’t seen the first season yet, we don’t want to spoil you by revealing the season two synopsis. So here’s a quick overview of season one: “A group of teen girls from different backgrounds must fight for survival after a plane crash strands them on a deserted island. The castaways both clash and bond as they learn more about each other, the secrets they keep, and the traumas they’ve all endured. There’s just one twist to this thrilling drama… these girls did not end up on this island by accident.”

Reign plays competitive diver Rachel Reid, who is one of the plane crash survivors.

You might also recognize Reign from her role as Nicole Avant on The Bold and the Beautiful and for playing Leanna Martin in the MacGyver series.

Here are 10 Fun Facts about Reign:

  1. I have been nominated for four daytime Emmy’s. Three times for Outstanding Younger Actress and one time for Outstanding Original Song in A Drama Series.
  2. My favorite show of all time is A Different World.
  3. I’m really sensitive to smell… while others may make a slight scowl due to a foul smell I, on the other hand, will more than likely be dry heaving. I’m serious. Because of it I am guilty 100% of requesting lavender and/or eucalyptus spray on set lmao!
  4. Science was my best subject in school.
  5. When I was 11 years old, I played Zonia Loomis in August Wilson’s Joe Turner’s Come and Gone at Center Stage Theatre in Baltimore, Maryland. The last person to play that role before me in that theatre was Jada Pinkett Smith.

  2. I am the middle child. I know. We’re awesome.
  3. I used to DREAM of the day I could finally drive but once I finally got my permit and started driving, I was too scared to get my license. Don’t worry, my Aunt made me get it.
  4. I graduated high school early at 16 so I could work on set as legal 18.
