Bonham is set to play Elizabeth Taylor

LOS ANGELES - British actress Helena Bonham Carter will play late screen icon Elizabeth Taylor in a TV movie that will explore Taylor’s tempestuous relationship with actor Richard Burton which captivated audiences and headlines. The first photograph of Bonham Carter as Taylor and British actor Dominic West as Burton was released by BBC on Wednesday, ahead of the premiere of “Burton and Taylor” on BBC America in fall this year. The film’s central focus will be on Taylor and Burton’s appearance as co-stars in a 1983 Broadway revival of Noel Coward’s 1930 risque comedy play “Private Lives.”

In the play, which brought Taylor and Burton together seven years after their second divorce from each other, the former couple portrayed a man and woman having an affair while married to other people. Reuters
