Alice Sophia Eve (born 6 February 1982) is an English actress. She is known for her role as Carol Marcus in Star Trek Into Darkness.
Eve was born in London, the daughter of actors Trevor Eve and Sharon Maughan. She is of Irish and Welsh descent. She went to Bedales School, and More House School, and then took her A-levels at Westminster School in London.
During her gap year, she studied at the Beverly Hills Playhouse and then read English at St Catherine's College, Oxford. While at Oxford, she appeared in student productions of The Importance of Being Earnest, Animal Crackers (which toured to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe) and Scenes from an Execution.
In an interview with Team Coco, she states that she used to get into a lot of trouble in school before an abusive maths teacher said that she should get out of school if she would not start taking schoolwork more seriously. This motivated Eve.
