In a new behind-the-scenes video for Liz & Dick, the producers point out the similarities between Elizabeth Taylor, and the woman who is portraying her, Lindsay Lohan. Touting “her first starring role in five years,” the video proclaims that “Lindsay is back.”
“It was the start of the exploitation of celebrity,” Grant Bowler, who portrays Richard Burton, explains. He also refers to Lohan as “pretty much Elizabeth Taylor reincarnated.”
“I’m a huge Elizabeth Taylor fan, and I relate to her on a lot of levels,” Lohan added. “Living in the public eye, dealing with the stress of what other people say, whether it’s true or not.”

Liz & Dick will air on Lifetime in November.
