Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter (THR), during the Empire Awards, Daisy Ridley confirmed she's in talks to play Lara Croft in a Tomb Raider franchise reboot on the big screen. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens actress would be following in the footsteps of Angelina Jolie.
Ridley's Star Wars co-star John Boyega, who plays Finn in the sequel trilogy, admitted he'd already eyed Ridley for the role of Lara Croft and he's not alone.
“I played Tomb Raider the game, it’s a new take and I think the movies are going to be based on that version,” he told THR. “But I texted Daisy [and] was like, ‘this is you!’ and ‘you need to get on that because you could be Lara Croft.’ She should be."
Daisy Ridley has already proved her leading role credentials in Star Wars and would be a fitting Lara Croft. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.
