Tom Lionetti-Maguire, CEO & Founder of Little Lion Entertainment Limited said: “It’s not long until we officially open our doors to guests and they get to experience Tomb Raider: The LIVE Experience! Having Alicia embody Lara in the experience just made sense, as we wanted someone who understands the adventurous and resilient Lara Croft.”

Over 3,000 people applied to be live-action actors in the attraction. Just 33 made the final cut and appear from 9th May to guide guests through their adventure and help bring the story to life.
