Lily James is dead ringer for Pamela Anderson’s ‘Baywatch’ character
Take a closer look at this Baywatch babe.
Steamy new photos show actress Lily James transform into ’90s sex symbol Pamela Anderson on the oceanside set of the new Hulu show “Pam & Tommy.”
Sporting a red one-piece swimsuit and blond hair, the 32-year-old “Baby Driver” actress was a dead ringer for Anderson’s “Baywatch” lifeguard character, CJ Parker, while filming on a Malibu beach Wednesday.
“Pam & Tommy” is an eight-episode biographical drama that centers on Anderson’s rocky 1995 marriage to Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee during the months after their notorious sex tape was released. Lee will be played by “Captain America” star Sebastian Stan.
In the beach scene, James was filmed running into the ocean, ala a signature slow-motion shot from the opening credits of “Baywatch.”
“She really nailed it! They picked the right actress for the role,” said one witness. “The makeup, hair, everything was on point…She did the OG Baywatch run and walk.”
To make the transformation, James wore her hair in volumizing curlers and was painted with dark makeup before the filming began.
But earlier this week, Anderson reportedly slammed the show as a “cheap knockoff” and said she’d never watch it.
James was also spotted filming in skin-tight blue mini dress this week and her hair up in a messy bun.
A release date for the series, which is directed by “I, Tonya” director Craig Gillespie, has yet to be announced.
A rep for Hulu didn’t return a request for comment Friday.
