She could walk out of her house wearing sweatpants and an old t-shirt, and she would still look amazing.

And most of the time, it’s downright creepy—it might make you want to get rid of your smartphone!

According to Harper’s Bazaar, she says that she absolutely loves playing complex women who have an adventurous side—like her starring role in The Stolen.

She is not afraid to explore new perspectives and take creative risks in her work.
14 She Comes From A Creative Family
Alice was basically always destined to be an actress. Why is that? Well, she comes from a very creative family, and her parents raised her with a love of the arts. According to The Daily Beast, both of Alice’s parents are actors. In fact, her father Trevor Eve is quite famous in England! When she was young, she lived in America for a brief period of time as her father worked on some American films in Hollywood. However, he realized that the American market was not a great fit for him, so the family ended up going back to England.
13 She’s Popular In America And The UK
As we just mentioned, Alice’s father Trevor had a tough time finding American films where he could express himself creatively. He had much more success back home in England. But Alice has found herself with the ability to move between countries and industries, and she has found success in both America and England. According to MSN Movies, Alice began her acting career in England in the theater world, but eventually began landing small parts in television shows and drama films.

Alice is certainly no stranger to the science fiction genre! She is always open to amazing new sci-fi projects. According to Collider, Alice played Carol Marcus in Star Trek Into Darkness. The film received mainly positive reviews, and this role definitely put her on the map. However, before she began working on the film, she wasn’t too familiar with the Star Trek series! She said that she basically had to go watch old episodes and films from the Star Trek universe to study up and prepare! She says that she was happy to have the chance to appear in the film.
11 She Does Indie Movies And Feature Films

She loves to experiment and really explore her artistic side with all kinds of films and TV shows. According to IMDB, Alice has appeared in a huge variety of indie films as well as feature films. She even appears in indie films that go straight to DVD because they don’t have the budget for major screenings, like The Stolen. She really is just acting for the love of it and not trying to chase status.
10 She Does Her Own Stunts
How cool is this? Alice may not look super tough when you first see her, but she definitely is strong enough to pull her own weight on the set and perform her own stunts! According to Harper’s Bazaar, Alice likes to do her own stunts on set. She does not need to hand that responsibility over to a stunt double. We think it’s awesome that Alice does her own stunts. Many actors and actresses do not, and it just goes to show how seriously she takes her roles—she wants to go all out and do her own thing with it.
9 She Is A Strong Supporter Of Other Women
One thing that really makes an actress like Alice stand out? She is always there for her fellow women in Hollywood. You won’t catch her gossiping about anyone or trying to tear anyone down!

Honestly, we’re surprised that she hasn’t done more modeling, because she really could make anything look good! According to The Daily Beast, Alice has one feature that really makes her stand out. One of her eyes is blue, and one of her eyes is green! This is actually a condition called “heterochromia” (which just means that you have two different colored eyes). It’s pretty rare, but this unique feature just makes her look even more beautiful.
7 She’s Been Honing Her Craft Since She Was A Kid
We’ve already mentioned how Alice came from a family of actors, and it seems like she was simply destined to be an actress since day one. And there’s a reason that her talent and dedication shines through so strongly: she has been working on her craft and improving as an artist since she was a child. According to her interview with Conan O’Brien on Conan, Alice has said that she was always interested in performing, and that she always knew that she wanted to be an actor. She began acting when she was young, and she has simply never stopped!
6 She Appeared On The Hit Series Entourage
By now, you already know that Alice appeared in the TV series Black Mirror—but she also had a role on the popular series Entourage. According to Complex, Alice appeared on Entourage as the British journalist Sophia Lear. But she went from journalist to love interest for the main character of the show, Vincent Chase.

5 She’s Not Afraid Of Intense Shooting Schedules
Alice knows that hard work will take you far. She does not shy away from a project just because of an intense shooting schedule—in fact, this just encourages her to go deeper into her role and really learn how to embody the character she is playing.

In interviews with publications like IndieWire and Mandatory, Alice speaks highly of the people she has worked with, including Stanley Tucci, Matthew Broderick, and Chris Evans, among others. Seriously, we don’t think we’ve seen her say a negative word about anyone!
3 She Brings Her Own Ideas To Every Set
Sure, it’s not an actor’s job to change the script or improvise—the writers and directors have it all laid out for them, right? Well, technically it’s not their responsibility, but when an actor chooses to take that initiative, it really does bring them up to the next level. According to Collider, both Alice and her co-star Stanley Tucci have talked about how important it was for them to be able to give their input on the script for Some Velvet Morning. They described it as a collaborative process—they were adding and taking away from the script as they worked.
