Carroll was born on 21 May 1985, in Croydon, London. She trained at the Urdang Academy in Musical Theatre and graduated in 2007 with a distinction. Carroll has represented the United Kingdom as a professional display gymnast. She is also a teenagers’ gymnastics coach, choreographing the winning junior team at the British National Championships.
Since 2007, Carroll has been a registered actress. In August 2008, when working as a receptionist at a golf club, Carroll was announced as the new Lara Croft model for the latest video game featuring the heroine, Tomb Raider: Underworld. Carroll replaced previous Lara model Karima McAdams, who retired from the role earlier in the year. Carroll held the position until 2010, and is the final official Lara Croft model, as the use of models has been discontinued for future Tomb Raider games.
