Rose Byrne Will Reprise Her Role As Moira MacTaggert in X-Men: Apocalypse

Rose Byrne, who made a brief appearance in X-Men: First Class as CIA agent and Professor Xavier’s (James McAvoy’s) love interest Moira MacTaggert, will return to reprise her role in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. “She’s a significant character in the movie,” Apocalypse writer Simon Kinberg told Entertainment Weekly. MacTaggert will be joining a new cast playing the younger selves of Storm, Jean Grey, and Cyclops, but the main arc of the movie will focus on Professor X, Magneto, Mystique, and Beast. Another thing that is certain is that the movie will be heavy on ‘80s nostalgia. “That’s the era that I grew up in,” Kinberg said. “The music, the fashion, the video games: We really want to integrate all of that in the movie, and have it infuse the movie with a different vibe.” Rad!
