Alice Eve had to put up with a lot of effort and training for the role that she is performing in her new movie "Criminal", but she seems that this was not that much of a problem for her. The “Star Trek Into Darkness” actress said that it wasn’t easy to build her character, especially from the physical point of view because it implies a lot of exercise and a lot of dexterity in manoeuvring weapons. "It is action, there's CIA in it. I had to learn how to work guns, and shoot and dodge and throw myself down. That was an experience", explained the star.
Even though she might not like the weather there, the actress is presently working on the movie's set in the UK, co-starring with well-known names as Ryan Reynolds, Michael Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones, Gary Oldman and Kevin Costner. "I am filming that around London at the moment, with a really good director who I really enjoy working with, so I look forward to seeing it", added Eve about “The Iceman” director, Ariel Vromen.
The movie "Criminal" follows the story of a deceased CIA agent whose memories and skills have been implanted into the brain of a dangerous convict. The film is currently in production and it doesn't have an official release date yet.
Asked in regard with her past two Star Trek projects and her absence from the third one, which is currently in production, Eve refused to confirm or deny whether she has even visited the set of the new Star Trek movie. “Those guys they have heavy pistols! And if I even say anything in their direction I will be put in Bad Robot jail. I'm sure they're going to nail it, but I'm not going to be the one to tell you how", joked the star who worked in the past with the “Star Trek” movies’ director, JJ Abrams.
Recently, the actress joined director Dexter Fletcher as BAFTA jurors for the EE Rising Star Award's 10th Anniversary, to decide the five nominees for the 2015 EE British Academy Film Awards. For that, they are teaming up with an expert jury including film critic James King, The King’s Speech casting director Nina Gold and Les Misérables producer Debra Hayward.
