Lindsay Lohan’s ‘Liz & Dick’ Being Probed By Two Labor Organizations



Lindsay Lohan’s comeback role is now under investigation by two labor organizations.

The Elizabeth Taylor biopic, ‘Liz & Dick,’ set to air on Lifetime on November 3 is being looked into by two acting labor groups after the actress collapsed with exhaustion last Friday.

Paramedics were called to the set last week when Lohan was reportedly found passed out in her trailer and unresponsive. The actress later explained she was simply exhausted after “working 85 hours in 4 days” and that everything was okay.

It’s also being reported that two other crew members allegedly left the production due to exhaustion, leading bosses at International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) and SAG-AFTRA to launch the investigation.

In a statement rom Mike Miller, division director at IATSE, he says, “The IATSE is on top of the situation on the set of Lifetime’s Liz and Dick. We have had union representatives on the set since last Friday and will continue to monitor the hours and working conditions there.

“We take very seriously the safety and wellbeing of our crews, and are dedicated to seeing that they are protected from hazardous working conditions.”

A spokesperson from SAG-AFTRA spokeswoman has also spoke with, saying; “We have thoroughly investigated this matter and our business representatives have visited, and will continue to visit, the set of Liz & Dick. We have spoken with representatives from the company and they are fully aware of their contractual obligations. We will ensure that all applicable penalties will be paid.”

Exhaustion and dehydration is a common¬†occurrence¬†among Hollywood actors and actress when health scares happen, but if it’s happening to crew members as well, maybe it’s something to look into!
