MSN Movies: What’s it like to step into this fully realized world that’s newly recreated by J.J. Abrams? Did you feel like you had to get up to speed a little bit?
Alice Eve: One hundred percent, and (I had to) keep up. J.J. moves at warp speed, so keeping up with him is not easy.
The other great thing about these films is their sort of retro-futuristic look that hearkens back to the original series but speaks of a future of space-faring adventure. Did you find that getting into that, with bob haircut and the high-tech retro outfit … is that part of the fun of doing the film?
Well observed! You know J.J. and I had conversations about what hair I would do and whether people in space have hair, whether they wash their hair, whether their hair was like, you know, you take a pill and it stays exactly how you want it to be. So what we decided was that we’d throw in the Vidal Sassoon like ’60s bob, which goes from short to long, and we shaved the back of my head. Then we kind of went with the fact that Carol would have hair that moved.
So you didn’t want to have it lacquered up like you’re in a little space helmet?
Yeah, I didn’t want a helmet.
Saying “I like Star Trek” these days is kind of as broad as saying, “I like wine.” There’s the different shows and different films. What flavor of Star Trek prior to this was your favorite?
I think the Bordeaux of Star Trek is definitely J.J.’s 2009 movie.
Yes, the very new stuff.
And then the Opus One is “Star Trek Into Darkness.”
And then the table wine is all the other movies that J.J. didn’t make.
Wow, so you’re drawing a clear line in quality between the pre-Abrams and post-Abrams era. What was your favorite day on set? What was your favorite bit of shooting?
The days that I really enjoyed were when we were down like on the marina. They built a set where we would shoot the planetoid sequence. And that was pretty cool because we had like a big torpedo model, and we were working with the IMAX camera, and we were outside, and it was a huge scope, and I walked up a hill and took picture, and it was like looking at the future, with cranes and everything for this big set. It was a time that you got a sense of the scale of the production ’cause a lot of the time you were in the studio and then it’s more intimate.

Step aside, Princess Leia — there’s a new scantily-clad bombshell in the scifi universe
Meet Dr. Carol Marcus, brought back to life by Alice Eve in J.J. Abram’s much-anticipated sequel Star Trek Into Darkness. In earlier installments from the famed franchise, Carol, a stunning weapons specialist with a PhD, is involved with Captain James T. Kirk’s (Chris Pine), even bearing his one-and-only child.
Though that relationship has yet to flourish in the upcoming rebooted film, Kirk does glean a glimpse at the beauty-and-brains scientist in her skivvies, a scene that is sure to set pulses racing for fanboys everywhere. And even Eve herself would be honored if that movie moment becomes as iconic as Star Wars’ Princess Leia in a gold bikini.
“I love the Friends episode where Jennifer Aniston dresses up as Princess Leia in the gold bikini,” Eve told Celebuzz’s Cory Lopez. “I mean, I loved Friends. So if Jennifer Aniston ever dresses up as me, I think I would be one of the happiest girls around. [It would be] pretty damn cool.” (Hear that, Jen? Cough, Halloween costume, cough.)
With signs that a third Trek installment is in the works, Eve would be more than happy to team up with Pine for an on-screen romance. “Boldly go where no woman has gone before,” she said with a sly smile. “Chris is…great to work with and he’s got those baby blues that you can just kind of sink into so I’m sure Carol wouldn’t find it hard.”
