(Actually, way, way back, didn't Orci or someone say Eve's character was new to canon? Maybe not.)
Nope OK, I want to try and get something out of you that is actually new about the movie. Kind of like you did on the radio show but I will name a guest actor in the sequel and you will say if they are playing a new character you created or one from the original Star Trek canon.
Roberto Orci: OK, I’ll play. OK let’s start with Alice Eve. Canon or new?
Roberto Orci: Canon Noel Clarke?
Roberto Orci: New I assume that also goes for Nanzeen Contractor, who plays his wife?
Roberto Orci: Yes, new. Peter Weller
Roberto Orci: New. Joseph Gatt
Roberto Orci: New. OK and the big one, Benedict Cumberbatch.
Roberto Orci: Canon.

In the prime universe, Carol Marcus is a brilliant molecular biologist dedicated to improving and even creating life. In the post-Nero universe, she's a weapons specialist. Leads me to believe that Starfleet and/or the Federation may have had a type of U.S. post-Sputnik campaign to get the best and brightest to go into the defense and security fields in the post-Nero world.
We don't know that much about Marcus' earlier life in the Prime universe. She could have started a weapons specialist there too, saw things she didn't like in Starfleet and changed her path in life.
