I have always been a massive fan of the Tomb Raider series, but mostly the original release. After a worldwide search, they decided it had to be the model and sales assistant from London:
An unknown sales assistant and model has become the new face of action hero Lara Croft. Karima Adebibe, 20, from Bethnal Green, east London, was chosen after a worldwide search. The Top Shop worker will be the latest in a line of stunners to portray the video game character.
Adebibe’s new job will involve travelling round the world for the next two years, posing as the fictional tomb raider. She will take crash courses in SAS survival, firing guns and archaeology, as well as elocution and etiquette lessons, to portray the 11th generation countess.
It is a shame the films of the game were pretty awful!
