Alice Eve Career Milestones
Alice Eve has shown her talent in all three mediums of film, television and theater. Last year, she starred in romantic comedy She’s Out of My League, which tells the story of an ordinary guy (played by Jay Baruchel) who gets to date his dream girl (Eve) but allows his fears and insecurities to threaten their relationship. Also in 2010, Eve appeared in Sex and the City 2.
Previously, Eve was seen in Crossing Over, which followed immigrants of different nationalities struggling to achieve legal status in Los Angeles. A member of a gifted cast including Harrison Ford, Ashley Judd and Ray Liotta, Eve played a young Australian girl who recently moved to the city.
Eve is the daughter of actors Trevor Eve and Sharon Maughn. She went to school in London before going on to study English at Oxford University. There, Eve took part in many theater productions and soon developed a love of acting. Her first film role came while she was still at university as she played mischievous Miss Frain in the art-house hit Stage Beauty, opposite Rupert Everett, Clare Danes and Ben Chaplin.
In 2006, Eve starred in Starter for Ten, opposite James McAvoy and Rebecca Hall. Based on the bestseller by David Nicholls, the film was produced by Tom Hanks and follows a group of students negotiating their way through university life in 1980s Bristol. That same year, Eve was seen in the hard-edged comedy Big Nothing, opposite David Schwimmer and Simon Pegg.
In 2008, Eve turned heads on Broadway and in London’s West End for her work in the critically acclaimed play “Rock ‘n’ Roll.” Written by Tom Stoppard and directed by Trevor Nunn, she starred alongside Rufus Sewell, Brian Cox and Sinead Cusack.
On the small screen, Eve’s television credits include the hit U.K. series “The Rotter’s Club,” a starring role in the ITV1 movie “Losing Gemma” and the BBC drama “Hawking.” The actress currently resides in London.
