Pam And Tommy: Lily James and Sebastian Stan showcase their transformations

With two weeks until Pam & Tommy’s debut, Disney+ has unveiled the full trailer and epic character posters to accompany the eagerly-anticipated, true story drama.  

Starring Lily James and Sebastian Stan as the titular characters, the show follows the story of the leak of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s sex tape in 1997, which led to devastation for the Nineties pin-up and Motley Crue rocker when their intimate moment spread across the Internet for anyone to view.

Having hit headlines during the making of the show, Lily, 32, showcased her transformation into the iconic buxom beauty while Sebastian, 39, perfectly mimicked the rocker in the character posters for the upcoming programme, the first three episodes of which hit the streaming service on February 2.

Wow! With two weeks until Pam & Tommy’s debut, Disney+ has unveiled the full trailer and epic character posters showing Lily James and Sebastian Stan as the titular characters Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee

Lily, who began filming the eight-episode series in May, swapped her classic English rose for all the trappings on Nineties pin-up Pamela – complete with prosthetic breasts and exaggerated make-up. 

In the poster for the show, all of which were fashioned to look like video tapes, the Downton Abbey star gave a piercing stare and smouldering pose into the camera in her Pamela aping. 

The latest trailer sees Pamela’s world crashing down around her as she learns of the sex tape’s release and scolds her husband for not acknowledging the leak is more detrimental to her life than his. 

In a meeting with lawyers, she is asked about her knowledge of Tommy before she met him, to which she gently admits she ‘liked his smile’ before a montage of images play out their connection and initial union.

Pamela adds: ‘I knew he was the drummer for Motley Crue’, as she sits in an  uncharacteristically demure mint green suit while appearing to talk to the lawyers while giving a steely gaze to the camera.  

She is then seen appearing on Jay Leno, with a warm welcome followed by dazzling greetings to the crowd. 

Sebastian is also captured storming out of their lavish mansion with a gun in hand.  

Sebastian’s transformation was also put on display, while other posters feature Seth Rogen, who plays Rand Gauthier, the porn actor-turned-electrician who stole Pamela and Tommy’s sex tape, Nick Offerman, who plays Rand’s associate, Uncle Miltie, and Taylor Schilling, who plays Rand’s porn star wife Erica.

The sex tape was stolen by Rand after Tommy refused to pay for work that he had performed on their house.

When Gauthier confronted the musician about not being paid the $20,000 he was owed, Tommy pulled out a gun to scare him away. Gauthier took his revenge by stealing the giant safe that had been kept in the couple’s garage, which mainly housed the drummer’s guns and Pamela’s jewelry, in addition to the sex tape.

Pamela, 54, and Tommy, 59, tied the knot on a beach in Mexico in 1995 after dating for just four days. At the time, her mother hadn’t met Tommy. They went on to have sons Brandon, 24, and Dylan, 22, and divorced in 1998.

In 2015, Pam told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that she never profited from the sex tape, nor even watched it. She said: ‘I’ve never seen it. I made not one dollar. It was stolen property…

‘We made a deal to stop all the shenanigans. I was seven months pregnant with Dylan and thinking it was affecting the pregnancy with the stress and said, “I’m not going to court anymore. I’m not being deposed anymore by these horny, weird lawyer men. I don’t want to talk about my vagina anymore or my public sex — anything.”‘  

Earlier this year, Pam claimed that the video wasn’t actually a sex tape, but was merely a compilation of footage of them naked on vacation, which just happened to include sex acts.

In May, insiders claimed that the Pam has thinks Pam & Tommy is ‘a joke and cheap knock-off.’ She called the show ‘God awful,’ though the series had just begun filming, and she claimed she had never heard of Lily or Sebastian. 

The source said Pamela had ‘no intention of watching this God awful show, absolutely not. Never.’
