Tomb Raider voice actress fan favourite for new movie

In case you hadn't heard, there's a new Tomb Raider game in the works - with the rebooted story said to take its cues from the 2013 game title from Crystal Dynamics.

That story dealt with a younger Lara Croft who is still coming into her own, going through some really (really!) tough times as she is shipwrecked on an island and is only starting to come to grips with the raiding of tombs and the not dying.

Recently, Star Wars' Daisy Ridley has been in the frame for the part, with the 23 year old British actress confirming that some talks have taken place. She's certainly a good fit for the character in terms of look and age, not to mention that accent, but there's another possible contender we should be considering and that's Camilla Luddington.

You may not know the name but you're definitely familar with her voice, as she's played the part of Lara in both 2013s Tomb Raider and last years Rise of the Tomb Raider. She's got the voice down, and actually has a good bit more screen experience than Ridley with parts in True Blood and Grey's Anatomy. And fans are apparently chatting to the actress about it all the time on Twitter.

Now at 32 she's a little older than the version of Lara we're set to see on screen, especially if the studio wants to plan ahead for multiple sequels. Most crucially though, she didn't just appear in one of the most financially successful films of all time. Ridley would be a good pick right now because she's still so new to the game, making her contract potentially quite cheap, provided the negotiations can happen around what's bound to be a packed schedule for Star Wars for the next few years.

While Luddington would be a great fit she's not that likely to appear as Lara on the big screen, here's a look at how she brought the character to life for the game.

The new Tomb Raider movie is set for release in 2017.
