Scorchcake of the Week: Alice Eve

Alice Eve would’ve been awesome as Emma Frost in X-Men: First Class.

There. I said it.

Got it off my chest and now we can proceed.

Alice Sophia Eve was born February 6, 1982 in London, England. Her father, an actor, relocated the family to Los Angeles when she was young in search of success in the American film industry. They returned to England when Alice was 13. Eve completed her studies and embarked on an acting career of her own.

From She got her first film role in Starter for 10 (2006) with James McAvoy and followed that with the film Big Nothing (2006) alongside Simon Pegg. In 2006, she went to India to shoot the UK miniseries Losing Gemma (2006) (TV). Alice was introduced to American audiences in the film Crossing Over (2009). Her first high-profile role was in Sex and the City 2 (2010), where she played Charlotte’s Irish nanny.

See? She already had a good rapport with X-Men: First Class’ Professor X (McAvoy) since their roles together in 2006. Yeah, I’m still on that. She would have been a perfect Emma Frost, and seemingly could act circles around January Jones. Sadly, she dropped out of the role in pre-production.

Anyway, a lot of us first met Eve as Molly in 2010’s She’s Out of My League. She’s got a bit of a Christie Brinkley meets Rebecca Romijn thing going on, and she’s British to boot. Yep. She is set to star in 2012’s The Raven with John Cusack, and is now in talks for a lead role in the Star Trek sequel.

I’d be willing to bet that Alice will be nominated for induction into the UnderScoopFIRE Wife Pretty Hall of Fame at some point.

Today, we wish Alice Eve a Happy Birthday!
