    Well

    Well, I guess she looks hot to be Lara Croft. If she can do the stunts, then she can be a tombraider anytime.

    She's a gymnast, so she actually probably can do a fairly decent amount of "cool" tricks.

    Judging by that video, she certainly does seem very "bendy".

    Wow, she's beautiful...stop me if I'm wrong, but isn't her accent considered more "low class" (pardon the expression)? Not that that would stop me, of course. :)

    I haven't listened to the video (at work), but she's from Croydon, so probably :eek: :p

    Croydon is what tipped me off, but listening to the video confirmed it. Again, I wouldn't mind "good morning, honey" in that accent for the rest of my life. ;)

    Well, when you look that good you don't have to work hard to make a living.

    The one thing I like about watching the video is that even if I stare at her body and never meet her eyes, she's not offended. *thumbs up*

    I don't think she sounds too bad, there was a hint of South London-ish in her voice but I thought she spoke fairly "proper".


    I like her. :D

    Don't forget that she also has to wave her, ahem, 'guns' about.

    (Sorry. :eek: )

    Fair enough. So South London is the "low class" accent then?

    Hard not to. :)

    Stereotypically maybe, you can often find a bit more of that urban slang BS talk from around there but that can be found everywhere and there's plenty of people from south london who don't speak like that.
    I think thick Essex accents sound a lot worse anyway.

    I'm definitely no expert but she didn't sound too 'improper' to me.

    That may be because Croydon is in South London, or at least in the "Greater London" area.

    I'm not at all familiar with accents or every county, but I guessed even more south than that. Would have just said "Sussex", although I realize it's a pretty big area.

    The accent doesn't sound bad to me at all, but that may be a sign of my social status more than anything else. ;)

    Yeah, that's what I was getting at. :p There was a hint of that stereotypically croydon/south londony accent but nothing obscene.


    wait, why are we talking about her accent? :D

    All this talk about what she sounds like...I think you're missing the point. We're talking about a walking talking Lara Croft damn it! :p
