Lily James Required '3 to 5 Hours' to Transform into Pamela Anderson Each Day for Pam & Tommy
Lily James went through a lengthy process to become Pamela Anderson.
On Monday, the head of the show's hair department, Pam & Tommy, revealed that the actress took a lengthy transformation every day before she could step in front of the cameras.
James, 32, "had to go through between three and five hours of hair and makeup every morning," Barry Lee Moe told Diversity.
The upcoming Hulu miniseries finished production on Friday. The show, which was ordered in December, will "hopefully come out in February," added Moe.
Last week, James was spotted on the set for Pam & Tommy, which focuses on Anderson's relationship with Tommy Lee and the story of the Hollywood couple's infamous leaked sex video.
In a photo taken off the set, James is wearing a black satin shirt that was unbuttoned at the top and a pair of matching black shorts while rocking platinum blonde hair that was tied back in a ponytail.

Deadline reported back in December that James and Sebastian Stan would appear together as Anderson (54) and Lee (58) respectively.
Shortly after Pam & Tommy production began that spring, the first photos of James and Stan's transformation into Anderson and Lee were revealed. Stan shared a photo of James biting his nipple ring as part of his costume and wrote "Love Bites" in the photo's caption.

James, who posted a photo of herself rocking Anderson's platinum blonde locks in a black corset, shared a quote from the barbed wire star and wrote, “It's great to be blonde. With low expectations, it's very easy to surprise people. "

Anderson married Lee - one of the founders of Mötley Crüe - on a beach in Mexico in 1995 after dating only four days. The couple divorced in 1998 and have two sons, Brandon, 25 and Dylan, 23.
Anderson and Lee were at the center of a scandal when a safe containing a nearly hour-long sex tape of the couple was stolen by a disgruntled former employee.
Seth Rogen will appear on the series as the man who stole the tape, and he will also serve as the producer along with his partner Evan Goldberg. I, Tonya filmmaker Craig Gillespie, are directing.
While Anderson and Lee haven't yet commented on the project, Anderson's buddy Courtney Love slammed Pam & Tommy. Love, 56, wrote in a post on Facebook that has since been deleted: "I think that's so damn outrageous."
