^ But that happened more than 10 years ago, I doubt Angelina has any interest on the series now, even considering she's more dedicated to direct rather than act. I know what you say, I LOVE Angelina as Lara, I think she was born for the role since they share too much of each other, but I'm also eager for younger audiences to catch up with my favourite series. Now I feel what my father probably felt when Star Wars: Episode 1 was released

Just like the new reboot I have not played it. Probably won't. Gaming isn't what it used to be. If angelina is not in the new movie I just won't spend money on tickets. If she is casted I will seriously wet myself. It's annoying though because Crystal wants all the movies, comics, and games to be canon with each other. Back in the core days this was all seperate and open. I liked that better.

Years ago I thought Rhona Mitra should have been chosen instead of Angelina, since the former was the model for Lara and actually has a British accent. The general consensus is that Angelina's accent was pretty bad.

Rhona would have been perfect.

But how's Rhona's acting? Besides the accent, I thought Angelina herself did Lara justice.

This is what wiki says:

Quote:
After completing her stint as Lara Croft, she concentrated on acting and is best known for her roles as Holly Marie Begins on the sixth season of Party of Five (1999–2000); as Tara Wilson on the final season of The Practice (2003–2004) and the first and second seasons of Boston Legal (2004–2005); as Detective Kit McGraw on the third season of Nip/Tuck (2005); as Sonja in Underworld: Rise of the Lycans (2009); and as Major Rachel Dalton on Strike Back (2012–September 6, 2013 her final episode). She has a lead role in the upcoming series The Last Ship (2014).
All-in-all Rhona is a pretty decent actress, I think she could've done fine job portraying the 1990's version of Lara.

I wouldn't have minded Rhona. I liked Angelina as well.

Rhona would have been a better choice than Angelina to play Lara, but idk, AJ kinda made Lara more relevant.

Equal trade. Lara Croft kinda made Angelina relevant too.

I think the Oscar she won a few years before TR was released made Angie relevant.
