“Ben’s so funny,” she says, adding with a grin, “we’ve been out three nights on the trot…” But first, Eve will appear in British cinemas next week in not one, but two new films: The Decoy Bride with David Tennant and The Raven opposite John Cusack.
Between now and June she is reporting daily to Sony’s Los Angeles studio to film J J Abrams’s next Star Trek movie, in which she has a significant role that remains shrouded in secrecy.“I’m not allowed to say anything about it,” she says, before admitting that the atmosphere on set is “like a university; everyone’s in it together, mucking in”.In new movie The Raven, a fictionalised account of the writer’s last days, John Cusack plays Poe, who must race to unmask a serial killer whose grisly methods mirror those of his own stories — or see his beloved Emily, played by Eve, become a victim herself.Eve, the 30-year-old daughter of actors Trevor Eve and Sharon Maughan, said it was a “real Romeo and Juliet story” and she understood the passions of her character — even though Emily, who falls for Poe’s wild genius against her father’s wishes, never existed but is an amalgam of his many real-life loves. The thing I love about her is she was in love with genius,” the London-born star of Starter for 10 and Sex and the City 2 told the Standard. Poe was a total wastrel, lunatic drunk who her parents were opposed to, so being in love with him was not easy.During her time at the college, she got herself involved in many theater productions. Alice made her first appearance as ‘Miss Frain’ in the movie entitled ‘Stage Beauty’.
The offer came by while she was still at the University pursuing her degree.
You can say right words for that period, but when you say them with inflection and tone of how we speak now, it just doesn’t feel right.
The story itself is quite imaginative, but not quite enough to make me really invested in it, how much I love John Cusack.
Without spoiling much of things – a mysterious person is killing people and using Poe’s poems and stories as his inspiration.
Edgar Allan Poe is best known for his macabre tales, but for actress Alice Eve, it was romance not Gothic horror that drew her to her latest role as the author’s fiancée.
She has four major films awaiting release, one of which, Men in Black III, looks set to be one of the biggest blockbusters of this summer.
