FIRST LOOK: Helena Bonham Carter As Elizabeth Taylor

article-2313395-1970845E000005DC-239_634x909We’re still trying to scrub Lindsay Lohan’s recent desecration of late screen actress/AIDS activist Elizabeth Taylor from our brains too, but get ready for another impersonation of the violet-eyed star by Tim Burton’s favorite leading lady.

Helena Bonham Carter (snapped by U.K. paper Daily Mail walking to her trailer on set) appears opposite Dominic West in the upcoming BBC drama Burton & Taylor, which looks at the fabled duo La Liz and two-time husband Richard Burton, as they starred in a Broadway production of the Noel Coward comedy Private Lives in 1983.

While Bonham Carter is a British brunette, she isn’t exactly the first actress who comes to mind as a dead-ringer for Taylor, but the 46-year-old Oscar nominee is certain to fare better than perennial train wreck Lohan.
