It seems that the Tomb Raider movie reboot is still going ahead, with a lot of top actress being linked to the lead role of Lara Croft. With suggestions that the Tomb Raider movie reboot could be a sort of origins story, it is likely that a younger actress will be cast as Lara Croft.
One actress who has put herself firmly on the radar, is up and coming star Samantha Barks, who burst onto the scene with her performance as Eponine in the hit movie Les Miserables. Samantha is working her way up the Hollywood ladder and certainly has the talent to make it to the top.
As we all know, Lara Croft is a British character and, rather than having another American actress doing a dodgy English accent, as Angelina Jolie did, it would make more sense to cast a British star. Samantha Barks is a British actress and only 23 years old, so could be ideal for the role of Lara Croft in Tomb Raider.
With that said, there are plenty more British actresses capable of taking on the role of Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider movie reboot, and it is likely that the studio would rather go for a big name, which would help to draw in the crowds.
