Just because. There’s pictures of Alison Carroll “being” Lara Croft at T3′s offices here. That’s it. Look at them.

New Lara Alison Carroll’s told GameInformer that keeping up with the launch of Tomb Raider: Underworld has been a “crazy” experience, one that’s taken her all over the world.
“It’s been crazy,” she said. “I was travelling yesterday so I came from LA and flew over to New York for today, and then today we have had interviews all over New York. I have been ferried around everywhere and it is very exciting, I am meeting lots of new people.
It doesn’t appear to be slowing down, either.
“I’ve got some more dates in the UK next week and then I think I am going of to Italy a couple of weeks after that, but the last two months have been absolutely crazy, I have been all over the globe,” she said.
“I have been all over Europe, and then I’ve been to Australia, Singapore, Dubai, all over Scandinavia, Belgium, Amsterdam, South Africa, and now I am in the States. So it has been a really crazy time.”
More through there.

Smile, love. It might never happen. PS3Life.nl’s posted up some photos of Alison Croft, nee Carroll, posing at Hamburg’s Next08 convention.
Seriously, Alison. Cheer up. With a chest that size, how could you possibly be sad?

Not pretty. Ekstra Bladet – or “The Sun of Denmark,” as Mike would have it – has put some basic archaeology questions to Lara model Alison Carroll on camera despite constant protestations. The results are a bit of a car crash.
Said the paper, translated from the Danish: “She’s beautiful to look at, but the actress behind the new Lara Croft game is not the sharpest of knifes in the draw, to put it mildly. See what happens when Ekstra Bladet asked her three question about ‘her field’.”
Eidos will be thrilled.

On PCGH. These look as though they’ve been grabbed from a promotional movie, or something. Hardly the most savoury thing to wake up to on a Sunday morning, but there we are. Help yourself.

While Eidos has been keen to play in the fact new Lara Alison Carroll was a receptionist until picked to be the new Lara model, it appears the high-kicking starlet’s rags to riches story may not be all it seems.
Alison is a registered model and is represented by MCS, the same agency behind Love Island “favourite” Alicia Douvall and 80s Page 3 icon, Linda Lusardi.
Which is a bit odd, as Eidos put out a press release today claiming, “Unlike her predecessors Alison does not come from a modelling background, but with 12 years’ experience as a professional display gymnast, she is completely at ease at the thought of appearing in front of thousands of screaming Lara Croft fans.
“She certainly had no trouble impressing the judges when she competed against hundreds of other hopefuls in the search to find the live model of the action heroine.”
MCS just told us that Alison’s been on the agency’s books since February 2007. Is 18 months a “background”? Eidos seems to think not.
Thanks to the mole.

You couldn’t make this up. New Lara model Alison Carroll reckons Lara Croft has all the things a man wants in a woman.
“She’s got everything that a woman aspires to be like and everything that a man would like to meet,” she told the BBC.
Carroll’s comments came after her faff was smeared all over the internet this morning is some fairly astonishing bury-me-in-a-y-shaped-coffin promotional shots.
Despite the ignominy, though, Alison’s up-beat about the whole affair. And why not? Before landing the Lara job she was a receptionist gymnast in Croyden. As you do.
“It’s an amazing opportunity,” she said. “Lara is strong, athletic, confident and independent so it’s a huge responsibility to take on her role.”

Carroll’s a gymnast, so doesn’t have too much of a problem with high kicks. We hope “have your freshly waxed, barely concealed genitals plastered all over the internet” was in her contract, frankly.
See for yourself.

In The Sun. Not as fit as the last one. She’s Alison Carroll, a Croydon receptionist “plucked from obscurity” to pretend to be the big-assed gaming icon.
“I’m single and having fun, I’m not looking for a long-term relationship as most men can’t keep up with me,” she said.
“But playing Lara Croft, the sexiest game heroine there is, should get me a few more dates!”
Calm down, love. Save it for the desperate daytime TV appearances in a couple of years. More through the link.
