Remembering the legendary Elizabeth Taylor


Legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor passed away this morning at the age of 79 after a long fight with congestive heart failure. Taylor, best known for her work in ‘Cleopatra’ and ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf’, was a charitable philanthropist who gave a great deal to charities and helped to start the American Foundation for AIDS Research.

Hippodrome Theater Artistic Director Lauren Caldwell says Taylor will be remembered as a star that shone brighter than the rest during an era where many big names were made.

The star was also known for her marriages, eight of them to seven different men. Taylor received two Academy Awards for Best Actress during her career.
