At the age of three Elizabeth Taylor danced in front of the Queen, at eight she played her first film role, at twelve she had her first film contract with MGM in her pocket. At 17 she was married for the first time. In one of her most famous roles as Maggie ‘The Cat’, her husband Brick asks her what the success of a cat walking on a hot tin roof could be. Her answer: ‘If she stays on the roof as long as she can’. After a life of great success, deep falls, disease and addiction, it was this perseverance that made Liz Taylor stand out in her long career. She died on 23 March 2011 in Los Angeles at the age of 79 due to heart failure.
