Who is the best voice for Lara Croft?

Tomb Raider 1: Shelley Blond
Tomb Raider 2 & 3: Judith Gibbins
Tomb Raider 4, 5, & 6: Jonell Elliot
Tomb Raider 7, Anniversary, & Underworld: Keeley Hawes

I personally think Judith Gibbins. Who do you think is the best voice for Lara?

I'm personally a Shelley fan but Jonell is a close second

Shelley, although I have a big bias for Minnie Driver.

All of Lara's voice actresses have very beautiful voices, but dear God, they can't act to save their lives. I guess my favourite ones are Judith and Keeley. Shelley is also lovely, but she doesn't speak much.

^

But if I'd have to choose between those I'd say Elliot.

But honestly none of them even compare to the new voice actress. I don't see how it can be topped. It's just perfect.

Judith and Keeley. I can't pick one, they're both so amazing. As I recently stated in my Lost Artifact review, I actually make it my goal to hear every one of Lara's comments in the gym JUST because Judith Gibbons is such an amazing voice actress! :D And Keeley Hawes is also just amazing, she can portray tons of emotion and her voice always comes through so clear and concise. :tmb:

Shelley is alright, but she doesn't speak enough to be really significant. And Jonell is definitely the worst. Not bad, but her voice has a tendency to sound like a child, instead of a full-grown woman. :rolleyes:

this. I can't fathom how anyone can stand to listen to that modulated baby voice. it's so affected and incongruous for a tough, strong adult woman :whi:

^ at least she was good enough to give you some sexual tension. the new one sounds like a kid -.-'

She's 21. . and I think you obviously just want Lara to be a sex object.

For me it has to be in order:
Keeley Hawes (Legend, Anniversary, Underworld and Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light)
The new voice Actress (Tomb Raider)
Jonell Elliot (TR4, Chronicles and Angel of Darkness)
And I like Judith Gibbins and Shelly Bond the same.

So she's the same age i am.

Yes, so she's not going to sound the age of someone like Keeley.

Judith Gibbins is Lara Croft, to me.

...But I did like Keeley a lot.

I think the lunch lady from Billy Madison should do Lara's voice:

I have to say that I would place: Jonell Elliot and Shelley Blond on a shared first place... Just love there voices.
Also Judith Gibbins has a lovely voice, although I thought personally to "lady"like for Lara...
Keeley, I can't really say, I love it when she got angry, but her Lara was boring overall, she didn't have much to do with her voice:(

Tomb Raider 2 & 3: Judith Gibbins


This, so much! Judith was by far the best voice for Lara Croft, very British & by far the most original voice in the Tomb Raider series for her! :tmb:

Keeley Hawes, without a doubt.

Judith Gibbins, without a doubt. Refined yet full of dry wit that screams British (well, more softly purrs ;))

Jonell Eliot for me. Broccoli Coconut Hot dog FTW. And her 'no' is a standart for me.
But I like all of them actually. We never heard too much from Shelley but her voice was nice.
I'll always remember Judith and Jonell as the classic Lara Croft.The badass sexy and sly lady. I think Judith said in a report that they were friends too. :O
Keeley had a calm soft voice, which fit perfectly for LAU but it'd have failed miserably if it was a classic game.
And the new voice is amazing. I replayed the trailer several times just to hear her voice, she'll fit perfectly for the new Lara. :cln:

So maybe
Judith ~ Jonell > Reboot Lara's voice > Keeley ~ Shelley
