After an international talent search using scouts in Europe and the US, Luddington stood out as delivering both a depth of emotion and the youthful tone needed for Lara Croft in the upcoming reimagining of the Tomb Raider franchise, due for release on March 5, 2013.
According to Darrell Gallagher, head of studio at Crystal, "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."
In addition to providing the voice, motion capture, and facial animation for the in-game character, Luddington will also participate in press events, including the Nerd HQ and Comic-Con panels in San Diego next month. There she will join the development team as they talk about Tomb Raider and the story behind its creation. She will not, however, be making personal appearances dressed as Lara, as previous live-action models have done.
