Lily James transforms into Baywatch’s Pamela Anderson in iconic red swimsuit

Lily James has transformed into Baywatch’s Pamela Anderson for her upcoming TV series, Pam and Tommy.

The eight episode series, which is set for release on 2 February, documents Pamela’s relationship with musician Tommy Lee, and the aftermath of their honeymoon sex tape being leaked after it was stolen from their home and sold on the internet in 1995.

In recent snaps taken of Lily on set, the 32 year old Downton Abbey actress looks unrecognisable with blonde hair, a fringe and thin 90s-esque eyebrows.

Completing the look for the highly anticipated TV show, Lily can be seen wearing Pamela’s iconic high-leg, red Baywatch swimsuit.

Lily’s co-star, Sebastian Stan, 39, has also undergone a complete transformation to look like Tommy, and has been pictured with jet black hair, eyeliner, nipple piercings while his torso and arms are covered in tattoos.

In the wake of snaps of the pair being released, people have been quick to comment on how impressive their transformations are.

Discussing the matter withEntertainment Tonight,Sebastian explained that it took him and Lily hours every day in hair and make up.

“We had the very best hair and makeup team we could've asked for and they just killed it,” he said.

“They deserve whatever awards that are given. We couldn't have done it without them."

Branding it a “crazy process”, the Captain America actor continued: “I think it took two hours for myself and then three hours for Lily almost every morning.

"Then you pile that on to a 12-hour day and it just definitely gets interesting by the end."

Sebastian went on to say he didn’t meet Lily looking like her actual self until the end of shooting, and didn’t know who she was.

He recalled: “It's really wild, with Lily, because the first time I saw her as herself was actually at the end of the shoot five months later and I was like, 'Who are you?' That's when we actually formally met."

Despite playing each other's love interest in the upcoming TV series, Sebastian and Lily aren’t thought to be romantically involved – however,Lily was linked to her The Pursuit of Love co-star Dominic West last year, despite him being married.
