Lara Croft to Raid London Comic Con

Lara Croft is coming to MCM London Comic Con. Camilla Luddington, who plays the iconic action heroine in the new Tomb Raider game, released in March, will be meeting fans and talking about her role as the intrepid Lara on the Saturday and Sunday of Europe's biggest comic con.

British-born Camilla is both the voice and performance actress for Lara in the critically-acclaimed Tomb Raider reboot. Published by Square Enix, the new Tomb Raider explores the gritty origin story of Lara Croft and her ascent from a frightened young woman to a hardened survivor as she explores a mysterious island inhabited by a sinister cult.


Camilla was cast last year, after an international talent search using scouts in Europe and the US. The game makers felt she  stood out as delivering both a depth of emotion and the youthful tone needed for Lara Croft in the reimagining.

“This has been one of the most important jobs for us to get right,” said Darrell Gallagher at the time, head of studio at Crystal Dynamics. “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.”

Luddington's other credits include Jo Wilson in Grey's Anatomy, Claudette Crane in HBO vampire drama True Blood and Lizzie in the fifth season of Californication.

Camilla Luddington joins a host of special guests at May's MCM London Comic Con, including the stars of Once Upon a Time, cast and crew from Steven Spielberg's Fallen Skies, famed anime director Shinichiro Watanabe and Mass Effect star Mark Meer.

Meanwhile, games publishers already confirmed for the show include Capcom, Nintendo, Square Enix, Rising Star, Tecmo Koei and Koch Media.
