Daisy Ridley Being Considered for Lara Croft Role in 'Tomb Raider'!

Daisy Ridley is reportedly one of several actresses up for the role of Lara Croft in the new Tomb Raider re-boot from Warner Bros and MGM.

The 23-year-old starlet is among a number of young stars in contention for the role, Deadline reports, adding that conversations have taken place but it is still early in the process.

Angelina Jolie famously played the role of the English archaeologist who is involved in adventure scenarios in the vein of Indiana Jones.

Daisy is currently filming Star Wars: Episode VIII, and has no acting projects lined up apart from the Star Wars franchise.

    What is it with that girl? She’s not a horrible actress, but she also isn’t extremely talented, nor is she amazingly looking. I just don’t get it.

    I don’t think she is a bad actress( Adam Driver was the worst actor in TFA) but she is nothing special either. She just lucked out on the role. The entire movie was rubbish.
    Besides, Disney now owns SW so I highly doubt they will let her do Tomb Raider.

    She’s got this tomboy appeal. I like her. I hope she gets the role. She’d be better than AJ, who pouted and posed and tried a bit too hard with the bad a$$ thing.
