Amanda's age

hey all,

how are we? I was thinking. (yes, it can be hazardous [hehe] ) anyway, Lara's about 30, 35 tops.
how old would we say Amanda is? I'm guessing eithe the same or maybe a couple of years younger.
any thoughts? :sun:

Well, she was a mate of Lara at university, wasn't she?
So I think, she's gone be about the same age.
A bit confusing is her grey hair, but this doesn't need to be the consequence of her age... :chin
But I think it's harder to say how old Lara is, because sometimes she looks like a teen (Legend) and sometimes like an older women (Underworld)...
and on one site, she's so clever and skilled, that she have to made experience for years, on the other site she's still tought and fast etc... :flare

Amanda is two years younger than Lara--it was said on her official biography. I think it can be found in either the Legend strategy guide or on the main website. I've seen it before.

And Amanda's hair isn't grey--it was originally blonde until she bleached it.

That's interesting, so as a conclusion I read that her age is now changed by Crystal. It's around 28-34 as of Legend, so you can sum up Amanda's age :P

If you look on the bio on TRG, Lara's in her 40's. Scary thought, that.

But going on the ages in TRU, I'd have said she [Amanda now, not Lara] was maybe 30, or at least somewhere very close to it.

Yeah, Lara's proper age is 39 years old, but I read in an article by Eric Lindstrom (I'll have to find it) that said in the games and movies, she stays 30. That's good.

Amanda's age

hey, Cat, :wave2:

according to Wikipedia, she is born February 14, 1968. that makes her proper age 41. so Amanda was born
sometime in 1970, so that makes her my age, 39. of course, 41 isn't really old anyway. but Eric say's Lara is
eternally 30 in the game, fine. that's the beauty of fantasy. you can be whatever age the creator(s) decide
for you. (I find it ironic Lara is born on Valentine's Day, yet her love life totally sucks [hehe] :grins )
Good luck in your new bed. Enjoy your nightmare, son, while you're resting your head.--

Yeah, but don't forget that Lara's actual age (despite technicalities) is 30, making Amanda to be in her late twenties. And no, I don't recall an actual date.

Amanda's age

hey,

true. of course, I imagine Wikipedia's info is based on if Lara was a real person and if the timeline of the games
was in "real life time". but as Lara is 30 or so (thus her birthdate is 1978, meaning Amanda was born sometime
in 1980), that works for me just fine. I find it interesting that Larson is only a year older than Lara. (I thought
he was maybe early-mid 40s). what surprises me the most is that von Croy was only about 60 when he died in
AOD. I thought he was much older. at least 70s or so.
Good luck in your new bed. Enjoy your nightmare, son, while you're resting your head.--

I always thought Von Croy was, like, mid 70's? He looks way old :D
