I wouldn't mind Keeley being brought back for unified Lara. If she portrays Lara more like TRU Lara than TRL/TRA I think she could feel like an evolution of reboot Lara. TRU Lara wasn't as OTT..

Oh my excitement would be through the roof if they bring back Keeley for unified Lara! I think it would be a logical thing to do however something tells me we ain't getting rid of Camilla so easily.

Keeley would make the most sense for unified Lara. If I could choose between Camilla and Keeley I'd choose Keeley hands down.

I don't mind Camilla but I wish they didn't make her says "I've got to..." so much. Oh and the constant panting I guess...

That's Camilla's main problem. I assume she's just following those awful directions. In Shadow she toned down the panting dramatically...and how marvelous that was!

I like Camilla in 2013 and Shadow, but Keeley is just brilliant as Lara Croft.

I'm surprised she'd agree to reprise her role in Reloaded. Where did Mikky obtain this information from? It was in the game's update? If so, I hope they upload footage :')

The update still hasn't come out for me...

Is there any footage of this intro bit available anywhere?

I just listened to the TR Reloaded theme for the first time. It's nice how it has the original tune in there. Pretty nostalgic.

The problem I've had with her is the inverse of the problem people have with Camilla, in that I found Keeley too composed, her delivery too measured.

Showing your pedigree is one thing - but Shelley, Judith and Jonell pulled that off without making Lara sound like a stiff-upper-lip stereotype.

I will readily blame CD for this, because I think they, as an American studio, might only have a boilerplate idea of what a British person is supposed to sound like, and directed her accordingly...

(vs. Core being a British studio - and I believe Ed, who's doing the writing and directing for Reloaded, is from the UK as well)

This little snippet of a monologue sounds much more natural than anything in the LAU trilogy or LC games, at any rate. It's great.

wow it's great to hear her voice again. Lara finally sounds like a woman again. I assume she was chosen because of the GOL/TOO notebook opening style? I do like the dialogue though, mimicking TR1.

Perhaps you can choose out of the 4 original actresses to do the voice? Or I guess Shelley, Juddith & Jonell will have another part each. Different stages of the story perhaps.

Just a shame this is for a mobile game I won't play. This notebook opening style would have been great for remakes/remasters to flesh out the story a bit more.
