Professor X wiped out her memory of being with the X-Men. Now she’s back and will be a significant character in the prequel.
Actress Rose Byrne will return as CIA agent Moira MacTaggert, who aided the X-Men in First Class, and was Professor X’s love interest.
“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,” Simon Kinberg, the film’s producer and writer, said in an EW interview.
Kinberg wanted Moira and Charles’ relationship to develop further. “It’s certainly a rich relationship that we started to dig into in First Class, and would like to mine more in this one.”
