Tomb Raider voice actress confirmed, Camilla Luddington is Lara Croft

Previously seen in terrible Kate Middleton film


Camilla Luddington revealed as new Lara Croft voice actress.

Camilla Luddington is the voice behind the new incarnation of Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider reboot, Square Enix confirms.

The 29-year-old English-born actress was discovered after an international talent search across Europe and the US.

"This has been one of the most important jobs for us to get right," says 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 she will participate alongside the development team in the Nerd HQ and Comic-Con panels in San Diego.

Luddington's previous work can be seen in Showcase television series Californication alongside David Duchovny, the current season of HBO's True Blood, and recently in the role of Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton in the made-for-TV movie Will & Kate.

She now joins the ranks of previous Tomb Raider alumni Angelina Jolie, Minnie Driver and Keeley Hawes.

Tomb Raider is scheduled to release March 5th, 2013 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
