It has been announced that actress Rose Byrne will return to reprise her role of Moira MacTaggert in the upcoming X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Byrne first played MacTaggert in the 2011 film X-MEN: FIRST CLASS. APOCALYPSE writer Simon Kinberg said the following: “(she’s) a significant character in the movie. We ended First Class with Charles having wiped portions of her memory of her experience with the X-Men. They are, essentially, strangers to her when she meets them. It’s certainly a rich relationship that we started to dig into in First Class, and would like to mine more in this one.”

Rose Byrne played the handmaiden Dormé in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones. She was discovered by Robin Gurland, the casting director for Attack of the Clones, while she was performing with Leeanna Walsman (Zam Wesell) in the play La Dispute for the Sydney Theatre Company. “What really helped me get into the character of Dormé was definitely her costume. It was so regal that it made me walk and behave very differently than a twenty-two-year-old Sydney girl. Her entire role really is to support Amidala, and her safety is Dormé’s top priority. That helped give me focus.” – Rose Byrne.

Bryrne told MTV that Moira will have several “cool looks” in X-Men: Apocalypse, and also commented on her overall interest in ‘80s fashion. Said Byrne: I like the ‘80s.’ There’s the high pant. I’ve got a bit of a great high pant thing happening. I like a strong shoulder. I’m not a fan of the weird negligee under the blouse look.

Spy: Rose Byrne Exclusive Interview

She is insecure about her acting. Byrne revealed in a post-award interview that, prior to winning the Venice Film Festival award, she was surprised by her own performance and found it confronting watching the film because her acting was “too depressing”. Byrne admitted that “watching myself is confronting because I’m convinced I can’t act and I want to get out, that’s how insecure I am.”
