Did you know that Joan Collins was considered for the part of Cleopatra before Elizabeth Taylor finally won the role? Here is her screentest. You see her in full costume and makeup trying out some of the lines- what do you think? Personally, she’s not a patch on Taylor, I think they made the right choice!
Apparently the final choice for the movie was between Taylor and Audrey Hepburn. I just can’t imagine Hepburn playing Cleopatra – perhaps that’s just because Taylor made the part her own. What do you think?
