True Blood actress Camilla Luddington has been confirmed as the new voice of Lara Croft in Crystal Dynamics’ upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. The British-born star was chosen after an “international talent search using scouts in Europe and the US”. She will also shoot performance capture for the protagonist.

Studio gaffer Darrell Gallagher explained:

This Tomb Raider game is very different to any other and we are demanding far more from the voice and performance acting than ever before as we take the franchise in a new direction.

Luddington’s set to discuss her appointment at a Comic-Con panel in San Diego next month. The game itself is scheduled to release on 5th March, 2013.
