Its so refreshing to know she'll never come back ever again. With this new voice actress, it'll like another reboot with more fresh and organic ideas and a more evolved Lara. Started to recently play Rise, and I can't bring myself to play these reboot games anymore. They are all so equally, dreadfully bad. Its been over a decade since I've played LAU so I think I'm just going to buy a PS3 to play those games. Gameplay wise, they aren't close to the original TR. But LAU Lara is so much more tolerable and fun than Survivor LC.

Lara's best voice actress?

Hell, even when I watch cutscenes of TRs she's not in, the dialogue plays in my mind beforehand as if she was the actress...and then I listen to the actual VA of that game and I'm disappointed.

Keeley >>>>> Jonell > Juddith > Camilla in TR2013 and Shadow > Shelley >>>>>>>>>> Camilla in Rise

I'd never say that even about my least favorite Lara (Jonell)

Most problems that you can have when it comes to a voice actor is usually rooted in the writing or in the voice direction. They are probably capable of being exactly what you wanted them to be, that's just not what they were instructed to do for whatever reason.

I 100% believe that Camilla is capable of delivering perfect classic steely Lara, they've just never asked her to try.

It could be possible, but she'd have to spend a lot of time working on her accent and changing her tone. A lot more effort than it's worth when they could just hire someone that can already do the job.

Voice actors usually get hired for the voice they already bring to the table.

The fact she cannot do a consistent British accent and uses Americanisms disproves that notion. Of everything about the new era of TR a new voice and characterisation, hopefully one that actually sounds British, is what I'm looking forward to most.

Yeah this could be true. Maybe it's just the whole character of the LAU era which I dislike and obviously keeley reminds me of her. I never liked the character design or the character in LAU. Legend had some good moments but the rest was pretty abysmal, especially storywise.

I'm not sure if Camilla would have been able to pull it off, even with proper direction. There are definitely some good moments regarding her acting during the reboot era, but the accent will forever be forced and has never sounded natural. I liked her voice during the more calm moments tho.

I'm not sure what her name is, but the actress for the netflix series sounds really good. I just wish we had more than 2 games with Judith in it, she was by far the best one

This amazing fan film as been shooted in Uzbekistan and I must admit I was hooked from the beggining until the end.
Reboot Lara fit so well with her more agressive fight style. ^^

At the begginning I thought it was Camilla's voice

That was fun. I liked the use of Game Lara's noises.
