Alice Eve may not have Peggy Carter on her resume, but she has added several impressive titles to her body of work over the years. The actor has been in movies like “She’s Out of My League,” “Men in Black 3,” and “Bombshell.” Her time on the small screen includes shows like “Black Mirror,” “Entourage,” and “Belgravia.” She even eventually received a Marvel role as Mary Walker in the series “Iron Fist.” But a strong contender for one of her biggest claims to fame is her role as Carol Marcus in “Star Trek: Into Darkness,” which happens to feature a particular scene she was in that has not aged well by some fans’ standards.
The part occurs in the film when Captain James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) walks in on Carol in a state of undress, leaving little to the imagination. The revealing affair received backlash from fans to the point where writer and producer Damon Lindelof offered an apology. But Eve doesn’t understand people’s problems with her barely-clothed close encounter with Kirk, and she is proud of her work on “Star Trek: Into Darkness.” “There are many things in the world that are confusing,” the actor said. “I put it down to one of those anomalies. I’m proud of that scene, and all the work I did.”
Eve clearly doesn’t regret her steamy “Star Trek” scene and has made it clear that she isn’t going to be ashamed of doing her job, even if it makes people focusing on one NSFW moment a little uncomfortable. The dedication she has been known to showcase for her craft arguably makes a strong case that if the rumors are true, she was a solid candidate for Peggy Carter.
