Lily James has turned into a blonde bombshell in the first photos from the set of her new Hulu series, Pam & Tommy. The actress is set to star as Pamela Anderson in the miniseries. It is said to revolve around the love life of Pamela and Tommy Lee.
The former couple was married on the beach in Mexico in 1995 after only knowing each other for 96 hours. This also brought on their sex tape scandal. In the picture, Lily was seen with platinum blonde hair. It was teased in an updo and she also donned fringe bangs which Pamela was known to sport back in the 90s.
Lily’s makeup was covered by a face shield and her outfit was hidden underneath a vibrant coral and pink robe paired with flip-flops. The actress has made no mention of being a part of the project. However, Marvel’s star Sebastian Stan confirmed his role as Tommy Lee on his social media handle.
Rob Siegel (The Wrestler) will script the eight-episode series, to be directed by I, Tonya‘s Craig Gillespie which is sure to be filled with much more ’90s fashion, and all things Baywatch and Mötley Crüe than we got a glimpse of in this first photo.
Lily James and Sebastian Stan are going to be seen together on-screen in an upcoming Hulu series. Lily will be portraying the role of Pamela Anderson as Sebastian will be seen playing Tommy Lee.
Pamela & Tommy’s Story
Sebastian is best known for playing Bucky Barnes, aka the Winter Soldier, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He has also appeared in a number of movies over the years which includes The Martian and I, Tonya. His recent appearance was in the Netflix drama, The Devil All The Time. The actor will further be seen reprising his role as Bucky for Disney+’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Meanwhile, Lily was recently seen in the Netflix film, Rebecca. It was a remake of Daphne du Murier’s movie. She is best known for her role as Cinderella in Disney’s live-action movie. The actress is also known for ABBA musical Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. Lily will further be seen in the upcoming movie, The Dig and the mini-series What’s Love Got To Do With It?
The limited series will see the story of the Hollywood couple’s infamous leaked sex tape and the scandal that came after. It will also feature Seth Rogen as he will be playing the man who stole the tape. According to reports, he will produce it with his partner Evan Goldberg. Dylan Sellers at Limelight and Sue Naegle and Megan Ellison at Annapurna round out the rest of the producers.
Pamela had married Tommy back in 1995 on a beach in Mexico after dating for four days. The couple went their separate ways in 1998 and share two children, Brandon and Dylan. The actress had described the infamous tape as a compilation of vacations they were naked on rather than calling it a sex tape.
“I’ve never seen it. I made not one dollar. It was stolen property”- Pamela
The former couple was at the center of a scandal when a safe containing an hour-long sex tape of the pair was stolen by a former employee. Pamela had tried to avoid the release of the tape by filing a lawsuit. However, it was leaked online and the Baywatch star dropped the suit.
“I’ve never seen it. I made not one dollar. It was stolen property. We made a deal to stop all the shenanigans,” Anderson said on Watch What Happens Live in 2015. She further said that she was seven months pregnant with Dylan and thinking about that was affecting her pregnancy. The actress decided not to go to court and be deposed by “horny, weird lawyer men”.
Pamela clarified, “I don’t want to talk about my vagina anymore or my public sex — anything.” Hulu has found success when it comes to miniseries with projects like Little Fires Everywhere and Normal People.
