Rose Byrne Reveals More Details About Moira McTaggert
Interview with The Playlist:
On Whether The Production Of The Movie Was Too Rushed:
"No, on the contrary, [shooting] films [you] have so much time. I come from TV-land, I come from ‘Damages’ where you have no time. You have no preparation. You just get the scene the night before and you hope and pray you do a good job. To me, ‘X-Men’ felt luxurious."
On Whether She Was Familiar With The Comic Books Beforehand:
"I pretty much had to dive in. I knew a little bit, but not much. It’s not my world really. I’m not a comic [fan], I never read comics, I’ve never been hugely into comic book films. It was a whole new genre to discover."
On Moira McTaggert's Role In X-Men: First Class:
"She’s kind of a collaborator. She’s James McAvoy‘s love interest in the film. She’s a doctor in the comics and she’s a CIA agent [in the film]. She’s a real pioneer. It’s in the ‘60s and it’s a time when women did not work in the CIA. She’s very smart, very ambitious, very forthright and really truly believes that humans and mutants can co-exist and in fact help one another."
