London, Apr 24 (ANI): Lindsay Lohan's comeback role as Elizabeth Taylor has officially been confirmed.
Lifetime network boss Rob Sharenow has confirmed that the 25-year-old actress will portray screen legend Taylor in the movie 'Liz 'n' Dick', based on the true story of Taylor's passionate romance with actor Richard Burton.
"We are thrilled Lindsay will portray beloved Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor. She is one of the rare actresses who possesses the talent, beauty and intrigue to capture the spirit of such a provocative icon," Sharenow said in a statement.
"I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor," Sky News quoted Lohan as saying.
"She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well," she said.
Taylor met Burton on the set of the 1963 film Cleopatra and began a passionate and tumultuous romance that made headlines worldwide as they married and divorced twice over the years.
The troubled actress had talked about her role in the TV movie last month in an interview, and she posted a picture of herself dressed as Taylor as her Twitter profile.
But there had been no official confirmation from the network until now.
The Mean Girls actress has been striving to turn around her bad girl image in recent months after being in and out of jail, rehab and court since 2007. (ANI)
