Elizabeth Taylor as "Maggie Politt" in Richard Brooks' CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF (1958) and "Martha" in Mike Nichol's WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF (1966) Elizabeth Taylor was born to American parents in London in 1932. After moving to Los Angeles, Taylor received attention from movie scouts and at the age of ten made her screen debut in There's One Born Every Minute. Signed by MGM the following year, the child star continued in the film world to become a legitimate actress, with films like Father of the Bride, Butterfield 8, for which she won an academy award, Raintree County, Cat on a Tin Roof, and Suddenly Last Summer. Her performance in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf won her a second Academy Award. Until her death on March 23, 2011, she was working with AIDS charities.
