|IN HER OWN WORDS... LARA
Croft is back and the freelance
adventuress is taking no prisoners as she
reveals all in an exclusive tete-a-tete
with GameSpot UK, where the star of the
Tomb Raider series talks about movies,
games and her recent adventures in the
land of the Pharaohs.
So what have you
been up to since Tomb Raider III?
Well there's not been much time for a
rest, but I've undergone some remodelling
and my joints are now feeling more supple
that ever. As for the more interesting
side of things, I'm currently spending
most of my time in Egypt...
favourite drink these days?
No time for champagne - I really need to
keep a clear head considering the nature
of the task in hand... Luke-warm bottled
water's not up to much but it's the only
thing available. Food and drink is the
last thing on my mind right now, but
Lucozade should definitely tap the
Egyptian market if only for the sake of
the camels - they could certainly use a
Where are you
living at the moment?
I'm based in various Egyptian locations -
fortunately I haven't had to waste any
time globetrotting. Jet lag was almost
becoming a way of life so it's a
refreshing change being able to stay in a
single country and explore it properly.
Any plans to
settle down and start a family?
That kind of future seems pretty remote
at the moment
What's the best
thing to happen to you this year?
I managed to take time out to appear in
the Lucozade commercial - which was great
fun. Those dogs were real you know, but
nothing compared to my Auntie's Corgi,
savage little beast that it is! My recent
Egyptian experiences are the best thing
so far in terms of adventure... but I
have a lot more to do here yet.
How do you think
fans are going to react to the new game?
'New' is certainly the right word for it
- Core has made some really dramatic
changes this time and the gameplay's
accessible to both loyal fans and
beginners alike. I think that The Last
Revelation is going to be a very
rewarding experience for everyone who is
willing to take up its challenge. The
changes definitely reflect my own
experiences in Egypt so far. I hope I get
the chance to play it myself...
What do you
think of you're newest look-a-like Lara
From what I've heard she's doing a great
job and coping very well with all the
attention. She seems to be an adventurous
soul, so no doubt she'll take it all in
Any news on your
I haven't heard any more news on that
recently. I believe it's still due to be
released next summer, but that the
actress hasn't been cast yet. I guess
it's a tough job since flesh and blood
isn't quite as versatile or durable as
Our Fashion fans
want to know what are you wearing this
season? Are brown shorts still in?
Very much so - I won't need much of a
costume change since the weather's pretty
consistent out here - and there are far
more important things to be thinking
about than fashion...
Will you be in
any more Lucozade ads?
No plans - and I definitely can't take
any time out right now, much as I'd like
a little light relief.
