But with a khaki parka slung on over her nightgown, it appears Helena Bonham Carter doesn’t share Dame Elizabeth Taylor’s sense of timeless style. Miss Bonham Carter, 46, who is known for her eccentric dress sense, was caught between scenes for forthcoming BBC drama Burton And Taylor, which charts the dying days of the late star’s turbulent relationship with Richard Burton. Between takes: Helen Bonham Carter (left) and Dominic West (right) on set of the BBC drama Burton and Taylor Miss Bonham Carter, whose big-screen credits include Les Miserables, Alice In Wonderland and The King’s Speech, was spotted with co-star Dominic West, star of crime drama The Wire, who is playing Burton.
