Yeah, about 12 years ago, perhaps.

Gemma Atkinson would be a good choice. She's 5'9" and very fit. Soap actress, fitness model, currently doing radio. Don't think she can do posh accents well enough - though Lara with a northern english accent could be a giggle, "Eey up. There's treasure downt pit."

Nope. No thank you.

Alicia Vikander, I think she played Lara Croft better than Angelina Jolie.

She was great in the role. Both did a great job.

Let me agree to disagree with you Aimless Thunder. I still don't think that Angelina Jolie was right for the part since she basically played the part the way she wanted to instead of playing the part closer to the actual character of Lara Croft. It still pisses me off to this day.

I loved Jolie at the time (even though I hated all the black/white clothes) and I still appreciate the fun of her performance but man I will never forgive that first movie for forever cursing Lara with DADDY ISSUES. I always wonder how the games would have went if they hadn't done that...now 6 games and 23 years later we're still dealing with I miss my mommy and daddy.

It was the first Tomb Raider comics the mask of medusa that introduced this to the TR franchise

Sure, the comics involved her parents in a story but those Top Cow comics probably didn't influence the movie. As for the games, it is known that Legend was heavily influenced by the movies. I remember someone from CD mentioning how they brought stuff from the movies to the games because the general public was more familiar with the movies or something along those lines.
