Star Trek newcomer Alice Eve spoke recently about how long it takes to get ready for her filming day on Star Trek 2.
“I’m a healthy amount of time in the makeup chair, though not as long as Spock,” she said.
Like everyone else involved with the production, Eve is careful about what she reveals about her work on the Abrams sequel. “We were filming until very late last night, and I know that’s all I can say,” she said. “It’s a top-secret operation; it’s like a war.”
But “a few things” will surprise Star Trek fans about her performance, said Eve. And she’s having a good time working on Star Trek 2. “I’m having a lot of fun, and it’s a very special experience to be on J.J.’s movies,” she said. “He’s a real good leader.”
