Nathalie appeared as Lara in The Mirror, a British newspaper in 1997.
Vanessa wasn't an official model, but she spoke at length about wanting to portray
Lara in 1997 in VSD Passion Plays, where she was featured dressed as Lara.
She thought it wasn't likely though as she was French, and Eidos agreed
it would be hard for an non-British (or American) actress to take the role.
