Dame Elizabeth Rosemond "Liz" Taylor, DBE was a British-American actress.

From her early years as a child star with MGM, she became one of the great screen actresses of Hollywood's Golden Age.

As one of the world's most famous film stars, Taylor was recognized for her acting ability and for her glamorous lifestyle, beauty, and distinctive dark blue eyes, which famously appeared to be violet.

National Velvet was Taylor's first success, and she starred in Father of the Bride, A Place in the Sun, Giant, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and Suddenly, Last Summer.

She won the Academy Award for Best Actress for BUtterfield 8, played the title role in Cleopatra, and married her co-star Richard Burton.

They appeared together in 11 films, including Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, for which Taylor won a second Academy Award.

From the mid-1970s, she appeared less frequently in film, and made occasional appearances in television and theatre.

Her much-publicized personal life included eight marriages and several life-threatening illnesses.
