Elizabeth Taylor was bornon 27 February 1932 in Hampstead, British, American. The phrase ‘talented beauty’ best depicts Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor and her life. While it was her stunningly beautiful face and magnetic appeal that drew her to the world of showbiz, her prolific career that spanned over six decades was due to her great performance, exceptional talent and inherent creativity. A performer by birth, acting was an intrinsic part of the personality of this beautiful actress. She took on the robes of an actress even before she had hit the double digit of her age and rest as they say is history. By the time she entered teenage, she was a star in her own right with the biggest hit of the year, ‘National Velvet’ in her kitty. While journalists adorned her with the title of ‘precious jewel of Hollywood’, directors and fellow actors referred to her as ‘One-Shot Liz’ for her ability to shoot a scene in one take. What is interesting to note in her career graph is that unlike other artists, the transition from a child actor to an adolescent star and from an adolescent star to a mainstream actress was a smooth and seamless one. She left an indelible mark in all the three phases of her career with movies, which have gained a cult status and are deemed as ‘classics’ today.
