Helena Bonham Carter will bringing her Elizabeth Taylor impersonation to the United States…
The 46-year-old part-Spanish actress stars as the late actress in the BBC biopic Burton and Taylor, which will premiere on BBC America on Wednesday, October 16 at 9 PM as part of the network’s Dramaville block.
Dominic West appears opposite Bonham Carter as Richard Burton in the biopic.
This version of the famed Hollywood couple centers on their ill-fated reunion on and off the stage for the critically reviled 1983 revival of Noel Coward’s stage play Private Lives.
Burton and Taylor aired in July on BBC 4 in the UK and averaged 1.17 million viewers.
The made-for-television movie, a BBC Drama Production co-produced with BBC America, was penned by William Ivory and directed by Richard Laxton.
