Lily James has revealed the hard work that went into her incredible transformation into Pamela Anderson.
The 32-year-old actress will play the former Baywatch bombshell alongside Sebastian Stan (Tommy Lee) in upcoming Disney+ mini-series Pam & Tommy, and she admitted it took a lot of research to perfect the role.
‘I’ve never worked so hard. I’ve read all the books [Anderson] has written, I read her poetry, I can parrot along to all her interviews,’ she told PORTER magazine.
‘And then, of course, there was the physical transformation. Slowly, our incredible team found a balance where I resembled Pamela but also felt like I could act through it.’
The Cinderella star explained how the role is the first time she’s undergone such a huge physical transformation, and she admitted turning herself into Pamela was ‘freeing and liberating’.
She added: ‘I’ve never done anything where I look very different from myself before.
