The Actress Also Spoke About Wanting Lara To Become a Mother
Camilla Luddington, the voice actress for Lara Croft in the reboot Tomb Raider games, said during an interview that she might not return to the series after Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
“That’s a hard question,” Luddington said after being asked by Variety about her future with the series. “There is a part of me that, with the way the trilogy ends, can imagine sitting back and being so proud, and I could feel my work is done with her.”
However, earlier in the interview, Luddington also spoke about her interest in seeing Lara become a mother to a daughter. “I would love to jump ahead and see Lara with a daughter tomb raiding together,” Luddington said. “I want to know what her relationship would be with her daughter, see her having that experience.”
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is said to be the final game in reboot’s origin trilogy and Luddington has been voicing Lara Croft ever since the first reboot game, Tomb Raider, came out back in 2013.
Luddington added that she wouldn’t want the daughter to simply be a character for Lara to chase after or rescue and suggested that Lara’s daughter should be the new protagonist of the series.
Darryl Purdy, the performance director for Shadow of the Tomb Raider, agreed with Luddington. “The thing my mother used to say is that you can’t understand what it’s like unless you have kids,” Purdy explained to Variety. “I find myself thinking it would be a very interested thing for her to explore.”
Shadow of the Tomb Raider was recently shown at E3 2018 during Square Enix’s conference and we posted an article about the demo that was presented if you’re curious about the upcoming game.
