Star Wars lead Daisy Ridley is in consideration for the role of Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider movie reboot. Jeez, Daisy, leave some action heroines for everyone else!

The movie series is being rebooted after the 2013 relaunch of the video game series, featuring Lara Croft as a young (and much less bust-centric) archaeology student. The game series has been a hit, and it opens new possibilities for the movie franchise. Ridley, who’s 23, has already proven that she can handle action-movie badassery, and, for that matter, follow through on the high expectations that come with a popular franchise.

Ridley is currently filming Star Wars: Episode VIII, which, by the way, had to go through rewrites in order to accommodate fan interest in Ridley’s character, Rey.
