Alice Eve was born on February 6th, 1982 in London, England to noted British actors Trevor Eve, and Sharon Maughn. She grew up in London, and has two younger brothers named George, and Jack. Alice Eve as some other celebrities, has heterochromia of the irises, her right eye is green and her left blue.
In her young adulthood, Alice attended Oxford University. While studying at Oxford, Alice became active in the student theater. This time spent in theater productions developed her interest in, and love of, acting. It was during this time that Alice appeared in her first major movie role; a character named Miss Frain in a film called “Stage Beauty.” Between 2004 and 2010, Eve appeared in numerous movies including “Starter for 10,” “Big Nothing,” “Crossing Over,” and “She’s Out of My League.”
In 2010, Alice Eve played Charlotte’s buxom Irish nanny, Erin, in “Sex and the City 2″. This role brought Eve front and center, and many consider her entrance to be show-stopping. The attention she garnered by playing the busty, bra-less nanny has allowed her career to blossom.
Shortly after “Sex and the City 2″, Eve was offered the lead role in a movie called “The Decoy Bride”, which is slated for release in Australia, and The United Kingdom in 2011. As Lara Tyler, Alice Eve plays a famous actress who wants nothing more than a small, private wedding ceremony with her fiance. When her wedding is crashed by paparazzi, Lara’s management team devises a plan for a fake wedding to throw the paparazzi off of Lara’s trail. The only problem is that the woman they hire to play Lara at the fake wedding causes Lara’s fiance to have second thoughts about who he really loves.
“The Raven”, starring Alice Eve as Edgar Allan Poe’s fiance, will be released in the United States in the spring of 2012. This film is a murder-mystery, and a fictional account of the final days of Edgar Allan Poe’s life. A serial killer bases several murders on the stories of Poe, which challenges Poe, himself, to attempt to solve the mystery. Edgar Allan Poe, played by John Cusack, works with a detective in this thriller to solve the murders based on his works, while also trying to save his fiance who has been kidnapped by the murderer.
After playing the damsel in distress, Eve took on a more powerful role as a young Agent O in “Men in Black III”. Little is known about the plot of this third installment of the “Men in Black” franchise, which is due to hit theaters in the summer of 2012. It is rumored that the agents will be dabbling in time travel, and Eve will play the young Agent O from the past. Further rumors speculate that Agent O, both in the past, and in the present, is working her way toward taking over as Chief of The Men in Black.
With titles like these on her resume, you should expect to see a lot more of this promising young actress in the years to come.
