Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton
I am actually quite looking forward to it. I really like Helena Bonham Carter. She is a talented actress. The ‘Private Lives’ period really intrigues me and the BBC tend to do a good job with their productions. Helena has also said that she will not be attempting to ‘channel’ or morph into Elizabeth, -‘I look nothing like her for a start but it’s about capturing the essence of them at a particular time. She was and continues to be a fascinating woman and she was a huge star. There’s no one comparable around now’ I can’t really comment on Dominic West, I don’t really know much about him as an actor, All in all though, I am very interested to see how this works out. It’s got to be better than Liz and Dick right?
I am so pleased that Richard is finally getting a star next to Elizabeth’s on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The ceremony takes place on March 1st and will be attended by Richard’s daughters Kate and Maria Burton. About bloody time too! Coincidently, March 1st is St David’s Day - the patron saint of Wales. Very fitting.
