I don’t care whether or not she does the mocap, but I would like to see Camilla take a shot at Lara again as her VA, considering she could be very different next game.

Why? She's had 3 chances now.

Not saying she's bad btw, but I'm not sure she 'gets' Lara as a character, or the writers.

Because I would like to see what she might do as an older Lara (assuming this is a few years after Shadow) and if we have some more sass and wit next game, it could be neat to see how Camilla tackles that.

That said, Iím also not opposed to a new VA. Shelley Blond would be fantastic imo, or some other actress that can nail the Lara sound.

I'm still team Chrysti Ann for face and body, she is flawless and looks just like Lara, and has the athletic skills to match.

And I want a new voice actress altogether. Camilla is lovely, but she is far too American. It doesn't matter if she grew up in England, you will find in every interview that's not based around TR she talks with an American accent. Lara needs to sound proper British, and they need a British actress who will do her justice.

After seeing the Watchdogs 3 reveal, I kept thinking the whole time, "Why isn't Lara talking like an actual British person in her games like this?" The voices, slang, cadence, everything. The most British Lara has ever felt in the reboot series was in the first game here and there, but in ROTTR and SOTTR she may as well have been American.

I did this super quick so forgive me for the quality, but I think it really depends on how she's stylized. I think Camilla's face totally rocks as Lara. And I don't mean the way it was done in Rise or Shadow. I mean, like a more mature Camilla look. I don't know. Maybe toning down the make up a little bit, but I can totally see this, specially if it's meant to represent a more mature Reboot Lara.

To be fair, that picture looks like it was heavily touched for a magazine. Apart from some certain characteristics, that doesn't even typically look like her. Camilla has these big beautiful down turned puppy dog eyes, and in that image they look completely different.

I don't see Lara Croft in her features at all (except maybe the forehead and brows, which they DIDNT EVEN USE from her for some reason). I see a flawless woman though.

Yeah, not to **** on Camilla's looks at all because I do think Camilla is attractive, but I just don't see Lara in her face at all.

To me the ultimate "Lara face" is and always will be Angelina Jolie. Victoria Beckham also wouldn't be a bad choice, considering classic Lara's in-game models straight up looked like a cartoony Victoria to me, in the face anyway.

I said this a couple months back but I also love the idea of Lana Parrilla's face being used for Lara. Even with her slimmer lips, there's just something very Lara about her face (the expressions in particular) and especially her colouring to me. Plus I think she's just stunning.
