In 2006, when she was just 19, Lohan posed as Taylor for Interview magazine in photos taken by Karl Lagerfeld – including a cover shot.
The shots are remarkably powerful, with Lohan managing to capture much of Taylor’s beauty and vulnerability – traits she’ll have to channel for the Lifetime film, too.
It has not been revealed who will star opposite Lohan as Richard Burton in Liz & Dick. Russell Crowe and Clive Owen are running neck and neck in a PEOPLE poll from earlier this week.
