Lindsay Lohan's on-screen love interest, Grant Bowler, had some pretty big compliments for his "Liz & Dick" co-star.

"Lindsay is excellent to work with," Bowler said in a promotional video from Lifetime's website (below). "She's pretty much Elizabeth Taylor - reincarnated."

Lohan, 26, stars in the 2012 Lifetime film that chronicles the life of Elizabeth Taylor and her tumultuous relationship with actor Richard Burton (Bowler). It also puts on display the late actress' struggles with fame, high-profile scandals and the paparazzi.

While Lohan is merely playing the late diamond-bearing actress in the film set for release in November, she explained how she can relate to Taylor's life in the spotlight - for a number of reasons.

"I personally understand Liz, because you're living your life for everyone else to see, and people are growing with you," Lohan said in the promotional video. "You get to a point where you become numb to it, and you just live your life the way that you feel you need to live it."

"The film arches over their entire lives, and how they had to go through life living in the public eye, and how that can tear people apart," she continued. "I'm a huge Elizabeth Taylor fan, and I relate to her on a lot of levels. Living in the public eye, dealing with the stress of what people say, whether it's true or not."

Lohan dyed her hair dark brown to portray the Hollywood legend in "Liz & Dick," and was also photographed wearing many different wigs on the set of the film.

Bowler, who is best known for his role as a werewolf on "True Blood," has also appeared on ABC's "Ugly Betty" as Vanessa Williams' love interest and also had a stint on ABC's recently canceled series, "GCB."

The 44-year-old actor is from New Zealand and is 17 years older than Lohan. Burton and Taylor were seven years apart in age.
