Lily James transforms into bombshell Pamela Anderson for new miniseries in LA

She is taking on the lead role in the upcoming miniseries about the Baywatch star.

And Lily James looked almost unrecognisable as she sported a voluminous blonde hairdo to transform into bombshell Pamela Anderson for the new Hulu drama.

The actress, 32, wore a protective white face mask amid the coronavirus crisis as she stepped out on set in Los Angeles, California, on Monday.

Pam & Tommy is based on the model’s tumultuous three-year marriage to rock star Tommy Lee, 58 – which saw them tie the knot in 1995 and take part in their notorious sex tape.

Lily sported a voluminous halfback blonde hairdo with a fringe and a heavy face of glamorous make-up.

The actress took cautious measures amid the coronavirus crisis as she wore a protective white face mask and visor in between filming. 

Channelling the 90s icon, Lily wore a white lace mini dress with a scalloped hem and finished her look with a perfect French tip manicure.

In between filming, the actress wore a long black padded jacket and comfy Nike sliders as she prepared herself for the role. 

Sebastian Stan, who plays the Motley Crüe drummer, Tommy, was not pictured on set.

As well as exploring the couple’s marriage, which happened only 96 hours after they met, a major storyline in the Hulu show is said to be the furore around their leaked honeymoon sex tape.

The infamous video was allegedly stolen from Pamela and Tommy’s home in 1995 and ended up being shared online.

The Baywatch star sued the company that was distributing it, before entering into a confidential settlement with Internet Entertainment Group.

Insiders told Deadline that Pamela and Tommy are not involved in the Hulu project, but have been aware that it is happening since Lily was brought in to play the media personality.

In May 2020, the blonde played down the clip on Andy Cohen’s show and cheekily told him: ‘That was not a sex tape. That was a compilation of vacations that we were naked on.’

Pamela also insisted she has a ‘great’ relationship with her rocker ex, stating: ‘We don’t talk at all. It’s perfect. No, we do… my kids are happy and that’s all that matters. They have a relationship now, and that’s the best part.’

The actress and Tommy were married for three years and share sons Brandon, 24, and Dylan, 23.

Pamela has also been married to Kid Rock from 2006 to 2007 and Rick Salomon from 2007 to 2008 as well as Jon Peters for 12 days in 2020.

As well as Lily, Seth Rogen will be playing the man who ‘stole’ the sex tape and will also be producing the eight-episode TV series.

Meanwhile, Lily recently admitted there is ‘a lot to say’ about her Dominic West scandal, but insisted now is not the time to divulge.

In October, co-stars Lily and married Dominic, 51, were caught enjoying what appeared to be a racy weekend in Rome, leading to his wife Catherine FitzGerald assuring the public they were fine – but banning him from working with Lily.  

The Downton Abbey alum is now blazing the promo trail for their new series The Pursuit Of Love alone and in an interview with The Guardian, she declined to discuss the media storm – but admitted there is in fact much to discuss. 

In her interview with the paper, The Guardian asked Lily: ‘You found yourself at the centre of a media storm last autumn [due to rumours of an affair with Pursuit of Love castmate Dominic West]. What was that like?’

It was then she came over bashful and declined to discuss, saying: ‘Ach, I’m not really willing to talk about that. There is a lot to say, but not now, I’m afraid.’

The thespian is currently dating rock star Michael Shuman, who is based in California.
