Lindsay Lohan will play Elizabeth Taylor in a movie about the late movie star's life.
Both actresses have a soap connection. Elizabeth Taylor was the original Helena Cassadine on General Hospital (read then Headwriter Thom Racina's recollections on how that came to be, here).
Lindsay Lohan played Allie Fowler, Amanda's daughter and Rachel's granddaughter on Another World in 1996-1997 (she left the show to star in The Parent Trap).
