    Angela Lansbury to be voice of Lara?

    tombraidercentral.net is reporting that Toby Gard has said that Angela Landsbury will be the new voice of Lara Croft.


    Ben, do you have a link to the source of this news? Unless you interviewed Toby Gard yourself, of course....

    Who's that? I've never heard of her. Well let's just hope that she can do a great Lara Croft impression!

    If the game is all a flashback of an older Lara, she'd be good as the narrator. But otherwise, buttery though it is, her voice is surely too mature.

    I've heard of it before but I don't think I've ever watched it.

    Hey, this thread is stealing my joke!!!!


    (oh well, imitation is the sincerist form of flattery, I guess.)

    EDIT-- Ah, jeez... I see somebody took my joke and posted it as an actual rumor on tombraidercenter.net. And to think, I almost pretended that Danny Devito would be the voice. I wonder if they would have believed that, too?

    What a lovely lady. I love her old b/w movies.

    As I said, I think that if the game is all a flashback of an older Lara, she'd be good as the narrator. Julie Andrews would also do, she was great as the Mom in Shrek2, hehehe

    Angela is one of our best exports. She lives in the U.S. now, but I remember her in The Company Of Wolves and Murder She Wrote.

    Thats's totally insane. I like the actot but she is just simply to old to voice Lara Croft.

    It's Just mad.

    Thumbs Up

    I liked a lot of her work, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Miss Marple, The Manchurian Candidate, but I can't remember the names of all the b/w movies she made that I enjoyed seeing her in on Saturday mornings.

    Ok, I have to clear up this joke. I made up that interview as a joke in another thread in which we were discussing possible voice actors. Toby never said anything about Angela Lansbury being Lara's voice. I never expected anyone to actually believe it!!

    I knew it was a cruel joke ......

    .... but on a side note. If anyone IS interseted in Angela Lansbury movies I'd HIGHLY recommend 'GASLIGHT.'

    And you will see she was and still is (for 80ish years of age) a beautiful woman.

    I don't see how anyone who knew who Angela is could have believed it for a second, at least not as a young Lara as we have seen in Legend so far.

    Yes, knightgames, I really enjoyed it, but it has been too long since I have seen it!

    I know the whole thought of Angela voicing Lara was ridiculous, but Mangar The Dark had me fooled for a second.
