Square Enix has confirmed that English-born actress Camilla Luddington has been chosen to be the voice and performance actress of Lara Croft in their upcoming Tomb Raider game.
After an international talent search using scouts in Europe and the US, Luddington ‘stood out’ as delivering both a depth of emotion and the youthful tone needed for Lara Croft in the upcoming reimagining of the franchise.
‘This has been one of the most important jobs for us to get right,’ said Darrell Gallagher, head of studio at Crystal Dynamics. ‘This Tomb Raider game is very different to any other and we are demanding far more from the voice and performance acting than ever before as we take the franchise in a new direction.’
This July Luddington will also participate in the Nerd HQ and Comic-Con panels in San Diego, where she will join the development team as they talk about Tomb Raider and the story behind its creation.
Whether she’s also due to don the signature short shorts and tank top of the iconic heroine (for promotional reasons of course) remains unconfirmed.
Tomb Raider is slated for release on March 5th 2013 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
