Shop attendant Karima Adebibe becomes new Lara Croft

Posted at February 15, 2006 10:23 AM

Replacing Angelina Jolie, a shop attendant from London is chosen to become the new flesh and blood of Lara Croft from the Tomb Raider games and films.

from www.fastcar.co.uk:

New Lara Croft Announced!

Angelina Jolie has been replaced as the in-the-flesh variant of Tomb Raider-legend Lara Croft. The new name to note is Karima Adebibe.

Karima who? Well, we can't blame you. Most of the world has never heard of her, but after a series of unlikely twists of fate, she is about to launch from obscurity into stardom: Computer game house Eidos have chosen Karima Adebibe from Bethnal Green as the new flesh and blood representation of Lara Croft.

Replacing the gorgeous Angelina Jolie, Karima will have to attend boot-camp and get clued up on the job as the job as every geek-boy's wet dream pretty damn quick. Up until recently, Karima was a sales assistant at Top Shop in London. She also worked as a model.

Now she has to fill the boots (and other garmets, if you catch our drift) of the world's favourite female action archaeologist.
