I attended a casting session with a number of other models.
Did you know anything about Lara and Tomb Raider before?
Yes, I had actually played the game a little before the casting. I had also seen Lara Croft on the front covers of lots of magazines.
How do you feel about representing a digital character?
Very excited! Lara Croft is such a tough, sexy character - why wouldn't I want to
be her? She's larger than life and I'm proud to think that I've been chosen to
play her part.
Do you think you have much in common with Lara?
Yes. I'm very independent and I love sports – running, boxing etc. I have an
athletic build like Lara and I've also got a rather large chest... though not quite
as big as Lara's!!! I also love a challenge.
Do you think Lara is a positive role model to today's young women? If so, why?
Yes, I do think Lara is a positive model - it's great to see a woman so powerful,
independent and tough, yet still sexy. I really think that Lara gives women
inspiration to go out and get what they want. She's a real no-nonsense
