In new behind-the-scenes footage from the set of Liz & Dick, Lindsay Lohan opens up about playing the role of screen legend Liz Taylor.
The TV movie follows the lives of Liz and Richard Burton, who she married twice. The couple were known for their passionate but turbulent romance.
Grant Bowler has taken on the role of Richard in the film.
Liz fell in love Richard on the set of the movie Cleopatra. They were first married between 1964 and 1974, after starting an affair while both married to other people.
A year later they married again, but divorced for a second time just a year later.
Lindsay and Liz
Lindsay, who has admitted being a hug fan of Liz, speaks about the parallels between her life and Liz’s.
She explained: “I’m a huge Elizabeth Taylor fan, and I relate to her on a lot of levels — living in the public eye, dealing with the stress of what other people say, whether it’s true or not.”
The 26-year-old actress also talked about how just like Liz - who died last March aged 79 - she understands what it is like to live life constantly in the spotlight.
“I personally understand Liz, because you’re living your life for everyone to see, and people are growing with you.”
She added: “You get to a point where you become numb to it, and you just live your life the way you feel you need to live it.”
The film sees troubled star Lindsay making her big movie comeback after five years.
Grant spoke incredibly highly of Lindsay saying she was “excellent” to work with.
“She’s pretty much Elizabeth Taylor reincarnated,” Grant said.
The TV movie will air on America’s Lifetime channel 25 November.
