Default Who voiced Lara???

Heyy. I don't know if this was ever answered, but does anyone know who voiced "My name is Lara Croft, and I'm about to die" in the TRC trailer?

I love that commercial! I don't know who the voice is and I'm afraid we won't know anytime soon... maybe somebody will discover it someday by accident.

She sounds a lot like Judith, but at the same time... could it be someone else?

It doesn't sound like her at all to me...

Hmmm... IDK. The more I listen to this interview the more it seems possible.

Her voice has surely changed a little bit since TR3, and the audio quality would probably create notable differences in the sound of the voice.

Do we know when this trailer was made? Maybe the voice part was something from pre-TR4 that was never used?

Oh sorry, I read it wrong, I thought you said Jonell Elliot.

I think the voice over was done specifically for that commercial only...

Usually (always) commercials are done by contractor company. The voice was some random girl hired to do VO for the video. Probably because the original voice of Lara never had it in her contract to do voice over for the commercial or was unavailable.

Pretty much. One would probably have to go through all voice talent agencies in the UK and check if she can be found with any of them.

I always thought the voice in that trailer sounded incredibly like Jennifer Milward (Greenkey2 on this forum) the voice she provides for the Level Editor projects sounds very similar as they both sound almost like Judith Gibbons but not quite.

It almost sounds like a blend of Charlize Theron, Kate Beckinsale and Rhona Mitra.
