Lindsay Lohan London, March 30 (IANS) Actress Lindsay Lohan’s probation has been terminated and now she is determined to remain focused on rebuilding her film career. She is looking forward to TV biopic, “Liz and Dick”, in which she plays legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor.

“It’s just been a tremendous weight that I feel has been lifted off my shoulders and I feel really grateful and just happy and ready to move forward,” she told

She regained her freedom on Thursday when Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner officially closed the case on her 2007 conviction for driving under the influence.

After successfully fulfilling the 120 hours of community service and counselling sessions, Lohan is now looking forward to working in “Liz and Dick”.

The TV biopic is about Taylor’s love affair with Richard Burton.

Production will soon begin in Toronto, Canada, and Lohan reveals she will be drawing inspiration from her own past to bring Taylor back to life on the small screen.

“I’m gonna put my all into it. I’m really honoured to be playing Elizabeth Taylor and I really love the script, it’s phenomenal,” she said.

“There’s are lot of similarities from my past that I can relate to her on some things that she’s gone through and the kind of person that she was,whether it’s relationships or just being in the public eye, so I’m gonna obviously do the best I can and hopefully people will enjoy it. I don’t want to depict her in the wrong way,” she added.
