Benedict Cumberbatch isn’t the only mystery-person in Into Darkness; actress Alice Eve’s role in the film has also been kept mum. The fact that she’s blonde, and wearing science-officer blue, initially made me think that she was a new version of Nurse Chapel. However, there’s another blond-sciencey character in Trek lore…someone with close ties to Captain Kirk…and someone who, perhaps purely coincidentally, appeared in The Wrath of Khan. SPOILER ALERT, but maybe Alice Eve is playing this person? DOUBLE SPOILER ALERT: According to CinemaBlend, she is playing that person. But maybe that’s just what J.J. Abrams wants us to think?
