The latest stills from BBC4's new drama portray the glamorous Hollywood couple starring in the Broadway run of Noel Coward's Private Lives

Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West look picture perfect in these new photos of upcoming BBC4 drama Burton and Taylor. 


The pair portray the twice-married and twice-divorced couple back in September 1983 when they starred together on Broadway in a run of Noel Coward’s Private Lives. Due to air on Monday 22 July, the feature-length drama looks to be full of glamour, following the legendary Hollywood couple’s famously explosive relationship both on and off stage. 

The British actors both wore blue contact lenses to help transform into their roles, with Bonham Carter also admitting to visiting an astrologer as part of her research in an interview in the new issue of Radio Times.
