Irrational Games announced tonight that it has selected a woman to play the real-life version of the character Elizabeth from upcoming first-person shooter BioShock Infinite.
Anna Moleva (pictured above on the right), will play the character Elizabeth (pictured above on the left) from the upcoming video game. Hailing from Moscow, Moleva, who goes by Ormeli, actually looks a whole lot like Elizabeth. Moleva will play the character in box art, key art, and an upcoming television ad. She will also make special appearances at select events.
In an interview with Irrational, she said that she was a fan of video games in her teen years and got into cosplaying because of that. She took about a month or two to put together her cosplay version of Elizabeth.
Here’s the shot that inspired the BioShock Infinite team to choose Moleva.
