Kaya Scodelario has been promoting her latest film 'Emanuel and the Truth about Fishes', and she was actually asked about the casting rumors concerning her taking over the titular role in the rumored Tomb Raider reboot.
When asked about her thoughts on being linked to the film, Kaya explained, "I know – I don’t know where the fuck that’s come from! Imagine having to take over from Angelina Jolie – you just couldn’t, could you? My auntie rang me up and was like, ‘Kaya, I’ve just seen on Google that...’ I’d literally not heard a whisper about that, at all."
She adds, "Would I be tempted? A little bit. That would be quite fun. Give me a couple of years to get my fitness up first, and then maybe I’ll tackle that one, but I’ve no idea where that’s come from at all.”
Many fans have called Kaya 'perfect' for the role, and it's certainly true. She has the looks necessary, but she's also right that it's difficult for anyone to follow Angelina Jolie. If the Tomb Raider reboot were to come to fruition, would you guys be interested in seeing Kaya Scodelario play Lara Croft? Let us know in the comments.
