Jonah Maiava (Early Baylon) and Zip (Allen Maldonado) will do voice over as well.
That's unexpected but exciting. Glad they went with Alicia and not... that other woman.

I’d hate to be as bitter as some of y’all here it’s sad, Camilla was the first VA to actually be the face of Lara Croft, and whether or not you liked her or not. Sis made history and will go down in history as being Lara Croft. If she does come back, I can’t wait to see some of you seethe with hatred lol. But I still love you guys though. A majority of y’all want Lara to sound like an upper echelon, posh, rich old lady which is weird lol. But in other words, this is just for the TR experience we still don’t know anything about the game except it’s in development, we don’t know who will play actual in game Lara yet. But I can’t wait to see what Alicia does during this, I love her voice honestly.

Not only voice, video recording too apparently.

Alicia Vikander will appear as Lara Croft, in a special video message and in voiceover, to help lead you through the #TombRaiderLIVE Experience.

You'll not be able to see this anywhere else. Book now: https://tombraiderlive.co.uk #TombRaider

Unpopular opinion, but voice wise, I don't think Alicia is that much of a better fit than Camilla for the role of Lara. I'd much rather have Hayley Atwell and get a preview of what she'll bring to the role in the Netflix series.

Jonell Elliott was the first to motion cap Lara. So she’s the first VA to actually be Lara.

^ Anne Le Chartier mo capped AoD Lara. Even Keeley didn't. Camilla was the first to mo cap.

What does that even mean, lol?

The most divisive LC, which isn't something to be proud of.

I don't. *shrugs*

I'm not that big on Alicia's voice, I actually kinda dislike it, lol, but I'll take it over Camilla. (With Alicia since she's onscreen her on camera presence is more important. God knows Angelina had the blandest and most generic voice ever, like Keeley, but Angelina's screen presence is what mattered.)

Well she Mocapped and voiced as Lara for E3 in front of an live audience so I would consider her the first VA to be the face of Lara if we’re excluding modes

I fully agree with this. It seems strange to me they wouldn't start a new chapter of TR (to properly tie in with the anime) by having Atwell instead of Vikander.

I don't think anyone said anything about "old." And it's not weird to want her to sound like an upper echelon, posh, rich lady because that's who she is (with an added streak of rebellion).

By that logic, it's weird to want her to sound like an out-of-breath American-trying-to-be-British bartender working at the "9-Bells" while she shares a flat in London with her fat friend, recovering from PTSD.
