New Lara Croft Alison Carroll

Alison as Lara



So, the makers of the Tomb Raider game have announced a new Lara Croft. Well, of course, she isn't really a new Lara Croft; she is a girl who dresses up as Lara Croft to advertise new versions of the game. Lara Croft does not actually, of course, exist. Not that this stopped the UK government a few years ago who made her an export ambassador. Those chaps in Victoria really do need to get out more.



The new girl, 23 year old Alison Carroll, is a former receptionist from Croydon and, how can we put it, is not exactly built like some of the previous incarnations. She does seem to have a good wonderbra, though.



Crikey!



However, she does appear to be as flexible as you would expect given that she is a former UK international gymnast. She certainly looked impressively mobile on the video clip we watched yesterday, doing all sorts of somersaults and tumbles. Very useful if you are pretending to avoid a CGI dinosaur, or some such


Karima!


Agent Triple P's favourite Lara Croft impersonator, however, remains sultry Moroccan model Karima Adebibe. She really did look like Lara Croft should do.

None of them sound like her, of course, (except Angelina Jolie, ironically). Alison does sound very Saff London.


Angelina. Posh


Triple P is not really a computer games player and indeed has only really played two games, the original Tomb Raider and a Lord of the Rings game. He finds that such games take up an inordinate amount of time which could be beter spent blogging, eating out or spending time with exotic foreign women in exotic foreign places. Nevertheless we have a soft spot for Ms Croft and wish her new flexible avatar well.
