Tomb Raider
MCM 2013: Camilla Luddington Lifts the Lid on Lara
Written By

When Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics decided to go back to the beginning with the latest Tomb Raider, they needed someone to redefine the voice of video games' most iconic heroine. Camilla Luddington was that very voice, bringing a more human, fragile side to Ms. Croft, while lending her a hard edge as she undergoes a transformation to become a born survivor.

We've got the lovely Miss Luddington up on the main games stage to talk us through her role as Lara Croft, revealing how she breathed new life into such a renowned character after more than 15 years of Tomb Raider adventures.

Stay tuned for some revelations and perhaps even a few lost treasures. Or something. Look, it'll be really interesting and insightful, okay? Just watch the live stream! Oh, and Tomb Raider is out now, in case you've been living under a rock for the past few months.

Was it just me, or when they gave her the handheld mic, was it turned off?

Not only was the volume so low in the video that I had to max it out on my laptop but the only time the mic worked was near the end when they were doing a bunch of BS.

Whoever "miked" her was an idiot! The mic she was wearing actually worked, but who was the moron who couldn't (or didn't want to) spend more time with her to make sure the mic was secured?

I would have my hands all over her - if that's what it took - to make certain the mic was secured!!
