Why is Lara Croft Australian now?

I bought the latest Tomb Raider in the Steam sale and started playing it and she sounds more Australian than British! I'm guessing they had an American do the voice of Lara! Kinda disappointing as a Britt to hear that trash come out of an "English" characters mouth! How would Americans feel if Solid Snake turned around and said "how aboot those guns aye"

British actress Camilla Luddington was the voice of the new Laura Croft. She was born and raised in Ascot, Berkshire. She went to an American school in England and spent a lot of time in America. Maybe that chnaged her accent, but they did get a British actress.

Because australians by default have a better survivability and are associated with being rugged crazy and badass.Fuck your stereotypes-that's fact.

Ok, lol, Lara Croft is still from England she just has an Aussie accent, there was no stereotyping going on, except for your stereotype about Australians being rugged, more than two thirds of Australians live in cities and have never left them so know nothing of outdoors.

well Australia was historically a prison island for England so maybe that's the logic behind it

I haven't got this game yet but I plan on getting it soon, I haven't watched any of the videos either so it's all new for me when I actually play it. I'll have to have a listen to see if I think she sounds Aussie. I think it'd be strange if she did though.

Look all I know about Australians is "That's not a knife, This is a knife!". ;-)

That's not a knife, that's a spoon.

After playing more it's weird, she only has that Aussie lilt to her voice in the Cutscenes, in the game she's as english as Fish and Chips.
