In 2010, Angie returned for First on the notable roles of his career, and that of Lara Croft was obviously one of them. She then justified her taste for action: “Like all women, I am maternal, sweet, loving, sexy and fun, but I am also a fighter. This film allowed me to exploit these different facets. Including my dark side… And that's not because I do humanitarian work I don't like action films for their wild side.”
