Lily James has revealed how long it took her to transform into Pamela Anderson for her latest role in the TV mini-series, Pam and Tommy.

The British actress’ performance as the former Baywatch star comes after she found fame at Downton Abbey before being cast as the title character in Disney’s live action remake of Cinderella.

To get into the character, Lily said she surrounded herself with images of Pamela, losing 20 pounds and changing her voice in a transformation that took place over four hours a day.

Lily told Diversity : “I wanted to be strong, not just lose weight. And then, I got these fake breasts and forehead. It took four hours a day.”

Physical transformation is one thing, but the Surrey-born star also has the voice and demeanor of Pammy to compete.

Lily continued: “I’ve been editing all of her interviews since the ’90s and I’m going to start tweaking her voice and learning it almost like a song. Pitch and rhythm. She spoke very, very quickly.

“And then what kind of hair and hands she has. I just watched her so much and felt in her the whole time.”

The star went on to reveal that to complete the role, she spoke continuously in American English throughout the five months of filming, instead of speaking her native Surrey again.

A second biographical role may soon be cast as Lily following her recent success.

The star is reportedly being set to star in an upcoming biopic about late Playboy playmate Anna-Nicole Smith.

Anna-Nicole’s life on a roller coaster is being turned into a biopic by two of her closest Hollywood friends, reality TV show stars Patrik Simpson and Pol Atteu.

The show’s producer Patrik admitted he “reached out” to Lily, who he describes as “awesome…everything she does is amazing.”
