The delightfully eccentric Helena Bonham Carter (featured above with her mother at a flower show) is probably the LAST person you’d imagine playing movie queenElizabeth Taylor in a film. But Helena is an accomplished actress – and happens to be blessed with a beautiful face, so she was cast to play Liz in the BBC production of “Burton and Taylor.” The script details the movie couple (Richard Burton and Elizabeth) in 1983 when they were costarring in the play “Private Lives” and probably drinking up a storm. English actor Dominic West plays Richard Burton, and it will be fun to compare this portrayal of Liz to Lindsay Lohan’s “Liz & Dick” Lifetime movie because it takes place 20 years later.
