After a slew of new cast additions, Rose Byrne has been confirmed to reprise her role in X-Men: Apocalypse. The Australian actress first played CIA agent Moira MacTaggert in 2011's X-Men: First Class. The new installment is sent about twenty years later, and MacTaggert, who was a love interest for Professor Xavier (James MacAvoy​).

“She’s a significant character in the movie,” screenwriter Simon Kinberg said. “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 [with Charles Xavier] that we started to dig into in First Class, and would like to mine more in this one."

X-Men: Apocalypse is only in pre-production right now, but it's expected to hit theaters May 27, 2016.
