VIDEO: New TV Spot for Lifetime's LIZ & DICK
In this official TV Spot for Lifetime's LIZ & DICK, viewers get a peek at some more of the violence in Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton's relationship. The real life story of actress Elizabeth Taylor's romantic relationship with fellow superstar Richard Burton stars Lindsay Lohan (Elizabeth Taylor) and Grant Bowler (Richard Burton). Check out the new TV spot below!
For nearly a quarter of a century, Taylor and Burton were Hollywood royalty and their fiery romance -- often called "the marriage of the century" -- was the most notorious, publicized and celebrated love affair of its day. Swarmed by paparazzi, Taylor and Burton's love affair was played out entirely in front of the global press from the time they met on the set of the major motion picture Cleopatra, left their respective spouses, married and divorced, only to remarry and divorce once again. Despite their roller coaster romance for the public eye to see, Taylor and Burton shared an undeniable love greater than most people could have ever dreamed.
Regarding the official casting announcement, Lohan said, "I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor. She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well. I am very honored to have been asked to play this role."
"We are thrilled Lindsay will portray beloved Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor," added Sharenow. "She is one of the rare actresses who possesses the talent, beauty and intrigue to capture the spirit of such a provocative icon."
Liz & Dick will be produced by Larry A. Thompson Productions, Inc. Larry A. Thompson (Amish Grace, Lucy & Desi) will serve as executive producer, with Christopher Monger (Temple Grandin) writing.
