Lindsay Lohan’s attempt at portraying Elizabeth Taylor didn’t go over so well during her role in Lifetime’s original movie Liz & Dick, but this time Helena Bonham Carter is taking a stab.

Carter will play Taylor in BBC America’s Burton and Taylor with The Wire’s Dominic West who will play Taylor’s fifth and sixth husband, Richard Burton.

According to Us Magazine, Carter underwent a major makeover to prepare for her role. The actress whose unconventional fashion sense has been described as “shabby chic,” has been transformed into the signature glamorous Taylor look.

The 90-minute film will focus on the couple’s revival of Noel Coward’s stage play, Private Lives in 1983. Burton and Taylor premieres this fall on BBC America.
