By
Alice Eve has spoken about the experience of filming Star Trek Into Darkness.

Talking to Digital Spy this week, Eve discussed her first impressions of the script, and returning director JJ Abrams's approach.

"The legacy aside, the reality of the experience was a great pleasure," Eve said. "It was special in every way, because the people who make the movie and are in the movie are all so impressive.

"The whole script is immaculately written - I read it in one sitting, and I just had the film in my head. It's that articulate and specific and imaginative."

On Abrams, she enthused: "He's a very intelligent, talented and determined man. Being around him is inspiring, and he engages you - you want to do your best for him, and tell his story in the way that he wants it told."

The first trailer for Abrams's sequel to his 2009 Star Trek was released yesterday, and offered the first glimpse of Eve in the mysterious role of a new Enterprise crew member.

The trailer focused heavily on Eve's Starter For Ten co-star Benedict Cumberbatch, in the role of an unnamed villain described as "a one-man weapon of mass destruction".

"On Starter For Ten, the scenes I had with Benedict, I was really incapable of keeping a straight face," Eve admitted. "He was just so funny, so it was a different experience working with him again. Less comedic!"

Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, John Cho, Anton Yelchin and Simon Pegg all reprise their roles from the first film, while Damon Lindelof joins original scripters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.

Star Trek Into Darkness will be released on May 17, 2013.
