Camilla Luddington Returns to Lara Croft Role For Rise of the Tomb Raider (VIDEO)

Camilla Luddington (Jo Wilson) has been hiding a very specific light under a bushel: She's going to be a video game star again!

In case you don't know a joystick from a directional pad, the Grey's Anatomy beauty first provided the voice and the motion capture for the character of Lara Croft in the 2013 reboot Tomb Raider, a sort of "origin" game for the franchise.

The game was a critical and commercial smash hit, selling more than 5 million copies, winning 15 major video game awards, and earning Camilla a VGX 2013 nomination for Best Voice Actress.

And just today (June 9), Crystal Dynamics announced a sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider, coming in 2015… and Camilla is back in action!

In fact, as the 30-year-old Brit tells her Twitter followers, you can already see her work in the game's teaser trailer.

"I am excited to finally confirm that I have already started work on … #RiseOfTheTombRaider," she writes. "Yes, I [did motion capture for] and voiced that trailer."

"Everything is as always very top secret, but I am beyond excited for this game!" she continues. "And, of course, to once again step back into Lara Croft's boots."

Camilla may very well be one of the hardest-working people in Hollywood, since she's working throughout her Grey's hiatus. "No summer vacation," she reveals on Twitter. "Lara's been busy…"

Check out the trailer below for a glimpse of her video game alter-ego, and then give us your reaction below!

Grey's Anatomy Season 11 airs this fall.
