Camilla Luddington has been selected as the voice behind Lara Croft in the upcoming Tomb Raider title from Crystal Dynamics. Luddington will voice the iconic character after being selected from an international pool of talent. Square Enix says that Luddington stood out among the crowd with the ability to deliver the “youthful tone” necessary for the younger version of Croft.
“This has been one of the most important jobs for us to get right,” says Darrell Gallagher of Crystal Dynamics. “We are demanding far more from the voice and performance acting than ever before as we take the franchise in a new direction.”
If you recoginize Luddington, it’s probably from her recent appearances on Californication and/or True Blood. Tomb Raider was recently pushed back to a March 5th release date for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
