I had read that Daisy Ridley had been first choice to play Croft in the reboot for the series so it is quite surprising that Alicia Vikander has been cast. After her Oscar win this year (supporting actress for the Danish Girl) and after seeing her inEx MachinaI think she will be a brilliant Lara Croft (even if another Tomb Raider film is a tad unnecessary). but I am more excited to see her in The Light Between Oceans.
