Lifetime's Elizabeth Taylor biopic Liz & Dick marks Lindsay Lohan's first starring role in five years, and if you ask her costar, Grant Bowler, Lohan couldn't have done a better job portraying the late actress.
"Lindsay is great to work with. She's pretty much Elizabeth Taylor reincarnated," Bowler, who appears as Taylor's fifth husband and arguably her greatest love, Richard Burton, enthuses of his costar in a new behind-the-scenes video. (Taylor and Burton were first married between 1964 to 1974, after they began an affair while both married to other people. They married again in 1975, but their second union lasted only a year.)
Working with Bowler, 44, on Liz & Dick was just one of the highlights for Lohan, 26, who calls herself a major Taylor aficionado.
"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 troubled starlet admits in the video above of Taylor, who died in March 2011 at age 79. "I personally understand Liz because you're living your life for everyone to see."
Watch a preview of Liz & Dick — and see Lohan and Bowler pack on the PDA — in the clip above before the Lifetime made-for-TV movie airs in November.
