Rhona Mitra

An exotic and striking British beauty with a figure buxom enough to serve as the model for "Tomb Raider's" Lara Croft, Rhona Mitra has risen from video game vixen to steam up the screen on film and TV. Of Irish, English and Indian heritage, Mitra was born in the Paddington section of London and attended R den, an all-girls school in East Sussex, but was ultimately expelled. After providing the pneumatic proportions for the original Eidos Interactive live-action Lara Croft model, the auburn haired stunner got her first break in an appearance with Clive Owen in "Croupier" (1998), followed by roles in "A Kid in Aladdin's Palace," "Monk Dawson" (both 1998) and "Beowulf" (1999) before a one-season stint in 1999 on the Fox melodrama "Party of Five" as Holly Beggins.
