EVOLUTION OF LARA CROFT

LARA CROFT MODELS - NELL MCANDREW

According to Nell McAndrew, "Dressing up like Lara Croft was my job between 1996 and 1997. Being the real life version of the character took me all over the world to promote Tomb Raider 3. My favourite place was Nashville, Tennessee. It was there I met Elvis himself, or so I thought, until I came across another Elvis at the same place. Sydney was a close second, where we stayed at the Ritz in Double Bay."

"I loved visiting our Armed Forces and have been named the 'Forces Sweetheart'. My visits have included the HMS Ark Royal, several bases in Northern Ireland, Germany and all over the UK. I made two visits in May and December 2003 to boost morale for our troops. On both occasions I personally met around 3000 people. It was an emotional experience and I am really glad I did it. I just wish I could bring them all back home with me."

The model from Leeds lent her body to Eidos in 1996 and travelled the globe promoting Tomb Raider 3: Adventures of Lara Croft. She is still considered by many as the most successful and popular model to fill the boots of Lara Croft.
