Camilla Luddington is a British actress best known for portraying Lara Croft in the recent revamp of the popular Tomb Raider video game series. She's also appeared on such popular series as Californication, True Blood, and Grey's Anatomy.
Camilla Anne Luddington was born in Ascot, Berkshire, England on December 15, 1983. As a child she attended an all girls school there before eventually moving on to the American School in England, one of five American schools near London. Camilla is known for having an accent that is part British, and part American. This is due to all the American television she watched as a child, as well as living in Texas for a year as a small child, then Pennsylvania, New York, and Los Angeles in the past 11 years.
At age 19, Camilla went to a university in Pennsylvania. After this, she moved to New York, then eventually Los Angeles to pursue acting. It wasn't long after the move that she began landing small roles on shows such as CSI and Big Time Rush. In 2011, she played arguably her most iconic role in the Lifetime movie William & Kate, portraying the royal wedding as now Duchess Kate Middleton.

Then again, it's a toss up to say which is more iconic: Kate Middleton or Lara Croft from the immensely popular video game series Tomb Raider. In either case, it was announced in 2012 that Camilla had been cast as the voice of the adventurer for the 2013 reboot of the series. She also did the motion capture for the game, which took a period of three years to complete.
Just when you thought she had hit the peak for such a young actress, 2012 continued to work in Camilla's favor. She was cast in three major television series to top off perhaps one of the best years in a television actors life. The first was Californication, where she played a sexy nanny hoping to become a Hollywood star. Then came True Blood, where she played a fairy in the show's fifth season. Finally, she's had a recurring role on Grey's Anatomy that has run all the way into 2013.
