In a new interview with EW Hayley Atwell has let slip her thoughts on Steve Rogers not actually being Peggy’s first love.
During Tuesday’s episode, viewers will discover that Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) was not Peggy’s (Hayley Atwell) first real love. In fact, our favorite SSR operative was previously engaged. “I initially thought that Captain America: The First Avenger was the beginning of Peggy’s story and The Winter Soldier was the end of Peggy’s story — the bookends of her life,” Atwell tells EW. “Of course, what we haven’t touched upon until we get to episode 4 is what made her, what created this character and where she gets her tenacity, her discipline, her purpose and what drives her. That very much stems from her personal experiences in childhood within her family.”
