Lily James has made her name from films like Cinderella and Yesterday, but photos from the set of Hulu’s upcoming series Pam And Tommy renders her unrecognizable. Check it out.
For those unaware, James is playing Pamela Anderson, star of the hit series Baywatch, in Hulu’s new series following the tumultuous relationship between Anderson and Motley Crue frontman Tommy Lee Bass, played here by The Falcon and Winter Soldier star Sebastian Stan.
Here’s a pic of Anderson for comparisons’ sake:
In real life, their union lasted 3 years from 1995-1998 and dominated news headlines. While little is known about the series at this point, it’s believed the show will be a comedic exploration of the ups and downs of their much-publicized union. While my familiarity with the Baywatch brand lies solely with the 2017 Dwayne Johnson/Zac Efron adaptation, I can say the makeup/costuming team have done a fabulous job transforming her into Pamela Anderson for the show.

Cruella director Craig Gillespie will helm the series, with Megan Ellison, James Franco, Dave Franco, Evan Goldberg, Sue Naegle, Seth Rogen, and Dylan Sellers serving as executive producers. The cast includes Lily James, Sebastian Stan, Seth Rogen, Taylor Schilling, and Nick Offerman.
