Lily James has undergone a dramatic transformation for her upcoming role as Pamela Anderson. The actress – who stars in the new series Pam & Tommy – is almost unrecognisable as she perfects her character in the new official trailer, which has just been released.

Pam & Tommy will focus on Anderson’s relationship with Tommy Lee, looking at their sex tape scandal, which occurred after a private movie was stolen from their home following their 1995 honeymoon. The couple famously sued the video distribution company Internet Entertainment Group and eventually the case was settled out of court, confidentially.

Sebastian Stan (known best for his role as Bucky Barnes in the Avengers movies), plays Lee and Seth Rogan has been enlisted to play the role of the man who stole the sex tape.

James teased fans to her new role, as she posted a snapshot of herself as Anderson to Instagram while filming last year. She perfected Anderson’s trademark dramatic eyeliner, blonde locks and a low-cut leather top – and quoted the Baywatch star in the post, writing: "It’s great to be blonde. With low expectations it’s very easy to surprise people."

James revealed another uncanny snapshot of her transformation into the bombshell. With a signature smoky eye, nostalgic frosted lipstick and a chainmail top, she appears to be recreating Anderson's iconic look from the 2002 American Music Awards.

While Anderson hasn't spoken publicly about her thoughts on the show, her close friend Courtney Love has discussed her concerns surrounding the project in a since-deleted post on her Facebook page. She spoke specifically about the way the show will likely bring up a significant level of past trauma for her long-time friend, and revealed she has denied the producers permission to use her own likeness.

Pam & Tommy will air on 2 February on Hulu.
