London native Alice Eve, who played Dr. Carol Marcus in Star Trek Into Darkness, was born in 1982 to actor parents Trevor Eve and Sharon Maughan, who played those same roles again in Eve's breakthrough role in the 2010 American hit, She’s Out of My League. Americans also know her as Sophia -- Eve's real-life middle name -- from the eighth season of HBO’s Entourage, and as Erin, Charlotte’s Irish nanny in Sex and the City 2.
Eve, before crossing the pond, built up an impressive stage and film career in her native land, including an episode of Agatha Christie’s Poirot and the film Big Nothing, opposite Star Trek co-star Simon Pegg. She also played an Australian illegal immigrant in the 2009 indie project Crossing Over. More recent credits include The Raven, Men in Black III, Decoding Annie Parker, Some Velvet Morning, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb and Before We Go. Upcoming projects include Criminal and Beyond Deceit.
The actress married financier Alex Cowper-Smith in December 2014.
