Square Enix recently announced that actress Camilla Luddington, has been chosen to be the voice of Lara Croft in the new Tomb Raider game; due for release March 5 of next year.
Starring in hit Showtime Series Californication and HBO’s True Blood.
Darrell Gallagher, head of studio at Crystal Dynamics, had this to say about the decision:
“This has been one of the most important jobs for us to get right. 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.”
Chosen after an international talent search using scouts in Europe and the United States, English-born Luddington is said to have both the depth of emotion and youthful tone needed to complete that goal.
Luddington will also join the development team in Nerd HQ and Comic-Con panels to talk about Tomb Raider and the story behind its creation.
Recently Luddington has starred in the hit Showtime series Californication and can also be seen in the current season of HBO’s True Blood.
