Camilla Luddington portrays Lara Croft in new Tomb Raider game

Lends both voice and body in a first for the series.

British actress Camilla Luddington has been named as the voice and motion-captured body of Lara Croft for the new Tomb Raider game.

That's her.

Luddington, 29, will star in the fifth season of telly series True Blood, as Claudette, and has appeared beside David "Fox Mulder" Duchovny in Californication, as Lizzie.

She also portrayed princess Kate Middleton in telly film William & Kate. Must have missed that one somehow.

Luddington will be the first actress to do full motion-capture work for Lara Croft. Actresses Keeley Hawes and Minnie Driver only lent Croft their voices.

The new Tomb Raider game is billed as a gritty reboot of the series. The game follows the escapades of a 21-year-old Lara Croft, as she embarks on a life of adventure.

It's made headlines for its rape controversy, and is questioned for its violence. But those are distractions - at its heart, it looks to be a very good game, as Tom Bramwell's very recent Tomb Raider preview attests.
