Jesus no not Judith. She was the worst Lara to me. No offense to her but she always sounded a bit older than what I expected Lara to be and a bit deeper too. I like someone who has a softer edge to their voice for Lara as they can convey the hard edge to her and the softer side too. Judith always sounded like a mum scolding her child who forgot to tidy their room.

I'll never understand how they went from Shelley to Judith to Jonelle. They're so completely different in their sound. Shelley to Jonelle works well as they're similar in tone etc but having Judith in the middle is really jarring.

If we were to bring back a past VA it would have to be Elliot for me, she was/is my Lara (Although Blonde will always have a special place in my nostalgic heart).

Fair enough, we all like and dislike different things. Maybe I like her voice so much because of nostalgia? TR2 was the first TR game I played, so...

Although I insist I suggest that if they decide to make an older Lara, like, a Lara that has never been done before, maybe in her late 30s, early 40s. Maybe have this older Lara as a storyteller and the game revolving around the story she is telling.

I actually think Konnie Huq would make a great Lara voice.

Hmm, that's different and unexpected, although I wouldn't be upset at that. She has that kind of voice that's classy but still relaxed and not trying too hard.

Keeley or someone new. Big no to first three VA’s. We’re trying to move the series forward, not going back to bad 90’s video game voice acting.

They could hold auditions and call the original VAs. The original games had few scenes and it's too little to judge how good they were. Plus, they might've improved with time.

I'd vote Judith.

My concern with the older actresses, and especially Judith given her voice already sounded mature in the 90s, is that their voices are probably going to sound significantly older now. Your voice does change slightly with age and there is such thing as "sounding old". It could give quite a strange effect on a late 20s/early 30s Lara to have a voice belonging to a middle aged or older woman.

If they can fake sounding much younger convincingly then hey, I'm all for it. Hell Camilla manages it...

It would give each of them a fair chance at being Lara, instead of just handing it to someone, so sure, why not.

I think Shelley would be an excellent pick, given how her natural voice sounds so Lara-like and warm. Judith would be nice too, though I’m concerned she would sound too old now.
