News – Lara Croft is getting a new voice

Crystal Dynamics are apparently searching for a new voice actor for Lara Croft to be featured in the Tomb Raider reboot. Keeley Hawes was of course the previous person to lend her voice to the character, and did a great job over four games.

Crystal Dynamics Global Brand Director Karl Stewart revealed that Keeley Hawes would not be reprising the role on Twitter. Perhaps they’re searching for someone with a younger voice to fit the more youthful Lara.

Let’s just hope that Lara Croft is not another character to be turned American overnight. I can already imagine the amount of backlash that Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix would receive.
