Hayley Atwell to Voice Lara Croft in Netflix’s Tomb Raider Anime Series
Twenty-five years after the release of the fan-favorite video game, Tomb Raider gets an anime series. And Netflix has finally cast the leading voice on the project, Hayley Atwell. After portraying Peggy Carter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the British actress adds another strong female character to her résumé. The Captain America: The First Avenger and Marvel’s Agent Carter vet will dub the most-famous fictional English archaeologist in the world, Lara Croft. Atwell also lent her voice to the animated version of her Agent Carter in Marvel’s recent What If…? show.
