Elizabeth Taylor was an English actress.

BiographyEdit

Born in London, England, Taylor moved to America at a young age where she soon impressed the studios and was cast in Lassie Come Home before being offered an extended contract. At the age of 12 she became a star with National Velvet, and continued to make pictures as a young woman, finding her feet as an adult actress with Father of the Bride.

Taylor became recognised as a star despite several expensive flops (famously Cleopatra, where she played the lead), had six Academy Award nominations (with two wins) and had a tumultous romance with actor Richard Burton, who she appeared with in Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? amongst others. As she grew older, her successes grew less, and she focused her attentions more on charity work and occassional stage appearances..

Taylor passed away in 2011.

SingingEdit

Despite her extensive career, Taylor only sang a few times, the first two while she was a teenage star, including "The Melody of Love" from Cynthia, which was featured in the documentary That's Entertainment.

More notable however was her role as Desireé Armfeldt in the film adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music.
