New Voice Of Lara Croft Revealed

For immediate release

Eidos Interactive, one of the world's leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, can today confirm that the new voice of Lara Croft is leading British actress Keeley Hawes.

Keeley, best known for her role of three years as Zoë Reynolds in BBC's flagship drama 'Spooks' and recently seen in Michael Winterbottom's feature Cock and Bull Story, took to the part of Lady Lara Croft, 11th generation Countess, effortlessly, "Lara Croft is such a strong and powerful character, but she also has an edge to her, which was great to portray vocally. Lara is getting up to all sorts of trouble in Legend, I am sure the fans won't be disappointed!"

"Keeley is perfect for the voice of Lara" said Matt Gorman, Brand Controller for the Tomb Raider series, "she had the right balance of aristocracy and attitude to really bring to life Miss Croft in all her glory."

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend is the seventh title to be released in the Tomb RaiderTM series, which originally launched in 1996, and is still one of the best selling videogame franchises of all time with over 28 million copies sold. Lara CroftTM has transcended games in a way no other character has, including action figures, comic books and two major motion pictures starring Angelina Jolie.
