English actress Alice Eve played the role of Carol in the movie Star Trek Into Darkness and, while most people were too distracted by the Alice Eve underwear scene, some were curious about the decision to give Carol an English accent. Alice has now opened up about the decision, revealing that there was a scene cut from the movie that explained everything.
Talking of her character, Eve explained, "I liked how determined and independent she is. At first you don't know what she is doing. She is determined and tenacious. Her father is the admiral of the Star Fleet and she knows something is awry on the Enterprise and manages to sneak her way on."
She then spoke about the English accent, adding, "There was actually a scene in the movie that was cut out. In it I explain to Kirk how I was raised in England by my mother and my father was American. She is a scientist and there is a stereotype that English are smarter than Americans, so we played that up!"
Star Trek Into Darkness is out now on DVD and Blu-ray. Meanwhile, Star Trek 3 has brought back Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci to pen the screenplay for the movie. J.J. Abrams will not direct Star Trek 3 and rumours suggest that Rupert Wyatt could be brought in.
