The Lifetime movie will examine the legendary love affair between Taylor and Richard Burton (True Blood‘s Grant Bowler), whom the actress married twice following a torrid romance that scandalized many of their fans.
“I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor,” Lohan said in a statement at the time her controversial casting was announced. “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.”
Liz & Dick is expected to air on the cable channel later this year.
