Sadly, acting sensation Elizabeth Taylor has passed away in Los Angeles at the age of 79. She was an inspiration to many over her career spanning from 1942 to 2011; a staggering 69 years. She had always had problems with health through most of her life and it was in 2004 she announced she was suffering from congestive heart failure. Also, during her lifetime she had both hips replaced; beat skin cancer; had a brain tumour, diabetes, seizures and a stroke. It is estimated she has suffered from 70 illnesses and has had 100 operations, 20 of them major surgery.
Through her career she starred in many films. She is best remembered for starring as Cleopatra which was released in 1963. Apart from acting she has had a colourful life; she has been married 8 times, to a US senator, John Warner and twice to Richard Burton. She was awarded 2 Oscars for her roles in Butterfield 8 which was released in 1960 and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf ? which was released in 1966?
For me, I personally think she will be remembered for years to come as the great actress who starred on our screens for almost 7 glorious decades.
She will be sorely missed.
