She is Alison Carroll, she’s only 23 years old and a receptionist plucked from obscurity to become the real-life Lara Croft. She will now travel the globe meeting fans of the hit computer adventures and acting out stunts from the game.

But playing Lara Croft, the sexiest game heroine there is, should get me a few more dates!” I felt so good pulling on the costume for the first time. So confident and in control. I really felt like an action heroine.”
