Simply put, Camilla Luddington has been, currently is and ALWAYS will be the BEST Lara Croft. I mean, look at Lara! Her character model in "Rise of the Tomb Raider" IS Camilla! She has been the voice Lara in the last 2 video games, which have some of the BEST DAMN VOICE ACTING bar none and has literally resurrected the " Tomb Raider " video game series! Lara has NEVER looked or sounded better. Because of Camilla 's performance, an old generation of fans has been brought back, as well as created an all new generation of fans. I have always been a fan of the "Tomb Raider" series, however, not like this. Lara is a now, undoubtedly, a BONIFIED BADASS. Lara was always a great female role model and antagonist for gamers, especially females, however, it always seemed like there were 2 different Lara Crofts. There was Lara the video game character who never said much and Lara the movie character. Lara in the movies was who Lara in the video games wished she was. I always felt they were different, until now. Now, FINALLY, there is 1 Lara Croft. Lara has an original story and personality. She is completely believable and not to mention, HOT AS HELL. She the kind of woman men today would fight for, die for, actually be able to bring as back up to fight along side and love for life. So, in short, Camilla has the look, voice, body, sex appeal and she has completely nailed what I believe Lara's personality and soul to be. It would be a HUGE MISTAKE for anyone else to be cast as Lara Croft.
