Meeting the Actress and Writer Behind Tomb Raider’s Latest Incarnation of Lara Croft

To really understand Lara Croft, you have to get under her skin. Which, considering she's a computer-generated character controllable in a hugely popular video game series, means speaking to the very real humans who bring her to life.

Camilla Luddington is so gorgeous.

And Rhianna Pratchett is an awful video games writer.

I agree, the writing for the new Tomb Raider was laughable. Still the game itself was fun enough to play, shame that the story was so laughable.

shammgod1030d ago

two fantastic observations. bubs to both

-Foxtrot1029d ago

Basically got a head in the profession because she's Terry Pratchetts daughter

She Jayden Smith'd her way ahead in life

iliimaster1029d ago

@ foxtrot lmao

" She Jayden Smith'd her way ahead in life "

thanx for that one classic

I_am_Batman1029d ago

That's sad to hear. How does the writing compares to the Tomb Raider reboot? I was hoping it would improve because the awful writing was the one thing that pretty much ruined my enjoyment of the game.

dont want to piss you off, but the invisible man is obviously behind her in the picture.

JMyers1029d ago

Watch Californication for more Camilla. Good show too

UltraNova1029d ago

Hank Moody is indeed the man. Very funny and sassy series.

That said I think I'll have a hard time convincing my self that Hank is Agent Molder again in the hunt for the truth that is...still...out there hehe..

How does that comment get 5 disagrees? Jealous ugly girls? LOL

-Foxtrot1029d ago

She's a terrible voice actress though

"Oh I hate tombs"

Still makes me cringe today

Speaking normally she's fine but screaming, shouting, in pain, grunting, angry....just sounds off. She makes Lara sound younger then what she is

DarkOcelet1029d ago

Well, Lara is young in the Reboot.

-Foxtrot1029d ago

No I mean they make her sound like a 14 year old girl at times...not a young woman

raiden111029d ago

She's a great voice actress. Specially the 2013 reboot. You actually felt the emotion of the character, when she was first captured. You could feel the story through her emotions ingame.

I wonder how would you score the voice acting of
Fallout 4?

Fallout 4 voice acting is terrible, emotionless character's.

-Foxtrot1029d ago (Edited 1029d ago )


Oh you mean the part where she cries a little that she's killed someone only to go on a murderous rampage, slaughtering a shit load of people even before her next cutscene. Yeah that's "believable" alright. Anyway what the hell has Fallout 4s voice acting got to do with this.

Thats one hell of a woman..

Tiqila1029d ago

it also explains the decrease in lara crofts breast size

DivineAssault 1029d ago (Edited 1029d ago )

Yeah.. She's kinda flat in real life and theyre slowly implementing that into the game.. She used to have an iconic look to were everyone knew who she was by looking at her but now shes just another game model.. The prequel version of Laura had a bigger bust for some reason.. I have a pretty good idea why too.. Same reason we're not getting that DOA game plus why xenoblade x, & SFV got censored

UncleJerry1028d ago (Edited 1028d ago )

well they coulda slapped some big flappin tits on there if they wanted, but i think they wanted her to be attractive without being just digital jerk-bait. i think the new lara comes off as very attractive but in a non-sleazy, respectable sort of way. lets face it, the old lara's chest was just ridiculous and especially in the current climate with gender in gaming, making her have massive eye-popping boobs bouncing with every single motion would prob just be offensive.

boodi1030d ago

she's quite very different from the ingame character of Lara

sparced1030d ago

Kyle Bosman talks a lot of sense about why Lara Croft has no depth to her character in his latest episode. I strongly agree with him.
