The New Lara Croft

As constant as the sun shines every morning, there is always room for changes. And this is what Eidos (Game Publisher) did by bringing in a new face for the real-life iconic adventurer Lara Croft for Tomb Raider: Underworld. What Eidos had in mind was bringing a little touch of reality to the whole character making her more lithe, and flexibly graceful (like a gymnast) to match the personality of an adventuresome archeologist like the character really is.

And so there came Alison Carroll, a 23-year old an English Gymnast (flexible huh?) and model.

“Tomb Raider: Underworld depicts Lara as we have never seen her before with movements and skills reminiscent of a highly skilled gymnast. Sharing Lara’s strength and grace, Alison is an experienced competitive gymnast who has performed and competed across the globe. Her more than 12 years of gymnastics training align perfectly with the game’s enhanced movement set.” – Eidos

The “Old Lara Croft

Some might say nothing beats the half of Brangelina playing the role of Lara Croft, but hey, why not give it a try right?

3 Critical:

  1. Got More – between Angelina and Alison, I have to say Alison has more. (If you know what I mean)
  2. The Moves – a veteran gymnast to play he role would really make a lot of differences… trust me, a back flip is not the hardest thing for her to do.
  3. Old vs. New – Angelina (old) is got the sexy looks, is thinner, more famous, but older. Alison is new, full of talent, just the right body, got the looks, and is way younger. So what do you say?
