Tomb Raider brand controller Matt Gorman said: "Karima has all the assets needed to accurately portray the world's favourite female action hero. Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend sees Lara at the very height of her powers. This makes Karima the 7th and most important Lara Croft yet."

Yes I think she has all the assets needed to portray Lara also. :D

Karima is definitely one of the better Lara models, it's funny that she went from shop assistant to modeling a world famous game character! Thanks for the biography, tlr! :wve:

I switched on my radio this morning when I got up and almost all radio stations were reporting Karima as the new face of Lara Croft. National newspapers are running the headline today.

You can't buy that kind of advertising, well.. unless you're prepared to fork out a LOT of money. If Karima earns 2 grand an appearance, the advertising and awareness as a result of that is a bargain!

Karima was born in the UK, moved to Morroco and then moved back to the UK when she was seven with her parents :)

Here's "The Scottish Sun" article on her:
