Californication Actress Camilla Luddington Becomes Lara Croft

These days, video games require good actors and actresses, especially because more and more games use the body as well as the voice.

In the case of the Tomb Raider reboot, developer Crystal Dynamics has chosen English actress Camilla Luddington and as expected, her work will extend beyond the voiceover performance. They'll also be using motion-capture techniques so Luddington will actually be, for all intents and purposes, in the game.

If you're not familiar, Luddington has starred in the Showtime series "Californication" and was also in the TV movie, "William & Kate," in which she played Kate Middleton. According to publisher Square Enix, it was the pretty girl's "youthful tone" and "depth of emotion" that made her a good fit for the young Lara Croft. Remember, Tomb Raider is a prequel so Lara is definitely younger than we've ever seen her before.

If you plan to attend Comic-Con 2012, you might see Luddington there; she'll be on hand to discuss her new role. Tomb Raider is scheduled to launch on March 5, 2013.

lol, I agree, I loved her "accent"....

Good for her though, I hope she does well with this role.

After being with Runkle, being taken advantage of by a mercenary in the jungle might be considered a step up? :P

Well, that's kind of a relief. I didn't know that the voice in the demo we saw was only a placeholder. Good to know. Not familiar with the show, but it sounds like she'll be a good choice... at least for the accent.

Does this mean we will eventually get a rated R Tomb Raider involving the assault portions everyone has been complaining about?

Haven't heard of the show, but I sure did listen to the Red Hot Chili Pepper song a lot.

It's about Mulder as a writer who has tons of sex.

It's a documentary series about having lots and lots of sex without catching something.

Oh man I'm not gonna lie there were fantasies running through my head about this woman while watching Californication. She would fit perfect for the role as there were fantasies running through my head about Lara Croft's pixelated boobies during my adolescence.
