Lily James on the Pressure of Playing Pamela Anderson, “What Happened to Her Was So Unprecedented…”

Lily James, the popular actress known for her roles in the Cinderella reboot, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Rebecca and Darkest Hour, talks about playing the character of the “Baywatch” star Pamela Anderson in the new drama series “Pam And Tommy”. The limited series focuses on her whirlwind romance with Tommy Lee, the drummer of the rock band Mötley Crüe and the release of their infamous sex tape.

Lily James told Rolling Stone: “I felt the pressure of trying to do justice to this woman. What happened to her was so unprecedented and so wrong.” The actress recognises playing Pamela as a distinctly different challenge to most of her previous roles, reports femalefirst. Lily James was determined to give it her best shot.

When asked about the challenge of playing the blonde beauty, Lily James said: “You come to understand how people think of you. That’s very useful, what that fantasy idea of you is and I was ready for a transformational role, something I didn’t really think I could pull off.”

She thinks the leak of Pamela Anderson’s and Tommy Lee’s sex tape “collided with the huge change in the world”, as it happened during the early years of the internet. In fact, the actress, Lily James believes the sex tape and the controversy that it sparked has influenced the “kind of culture we have today.”
