Lily James looks so much like Pamela Anderson in Hulu’s Pam & Tommy that she’s nearly unrecognisable. The first three episodes of the Hulu original miniseries, which follows the relationship between Pamela Anderson (Lily James) and Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee (Sebastian Stan) in the 1990s and the leak of their private sex tape, dropped on Wednesday, February 2, and we honestly can’t get enough of Lily James as Pamela Anderson in her Baywatch costume. You know, the iconic bright red one-piece bathing suit.
The transformation from Lily James—who is known for Cinderella (2014) and Mamma Mia Here We Go Again (2018)—into Pamela Anderson was not easy. Per Entertainment Weekly, the process took four hours and included hair, makeup, prosthetics, and wardrobe. “I was in the makeup chair at 3:30 a.m., and there would be this four-hour process to get me into the Pamela look,” Lily told E.W. Lily also said that she could not have pulled off the performance without the team that was behind the look.
“I have to give all the credit to David Williams on the makeup side, and Barry Lee Moe from hair, and the prosthetic team, and my day-to-day makeup artist Abby [Lyle] and Mo [Meinhart], who are the greatest people ever and just so dedicated, so full of love and attention to detail,” Lily James told E.W. “And Kami [Lennox], our costume designer, is out of this world.”
Lily also noted that there were not as many prosthetics used as you might think based on the transformation. The transforming part was, of course, the boobs. “The breast piece was amazing,” Lily told E.W. “You would never, never know it wasn’t me. It was shocking.”
