First Look at Dominic West and Helena Bonham Carter in BBC America's 'Burton and Taylor'


The Richard Laxton-directed TV movie will focus on the divorced pair's onstage reunion in a 1983 Broadway revival of Noel Coward's play 'Private Lives'.

After Lindsay Lohan, now Helena Bonham Carter brings to life the late Elizabeth Taylor in another TV movie. A first look at the "Les Miserables" actress as the legendary silver-screen star in BBC America's "Burton and Taylor" has made its way out, also unveiling a look at Dominic West as Richard Burton.

The upcoming pic will depict Hollywood's volatile on-again and off-again lovers, whose romance was increasingly strained during their appearance on a 1983 revival of Noel Coward's stage play "Private Lives". Despite the high anticipation, the production just ran for 63 performances on Broadway.

"Burton and Taylor" will premiere sometime this fall on BBC America. Richard Laxton directs the TV movie, which is executive produced by Jessica Pope with Lachlan McKinnon as producer.

BBC America's take on the love story of the famous couple comes months after the much-talked-about "Liz & Dick" starring Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler debuted on Lifetime. It received generally negative reviews, with some critics pointing out Lohan's "bad" performance as Liz.
