Adebibe was born in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets located in England. Adebibe is of Moroccan, Irish and Greek descent.
Formerly a secretary, she was selected on 14 February 2006 (both her birthday and that of Lara Croft) to be the seventh model for Lara Croft in the popular video game series Tomb Raider. The role involved promoting the game series "in-character" on television and radio, so Adebibe underwent training in Lara Croft's trademark skills, from martial arts to elocution. Adebibe was featured in "The HOT List" in a March 2006 issue of Zoo.
She had previously had a small role as a sacrificial maiden in the 2004 film Alien vs. Predator.
