Lily James is set to play Pamela Anderson in the upcoming series Pam & Tommy on Hulu, and fans are shocked by her stunning transformation for the role. 

On Friday, the actress shared a photo of herself in character as the Baywatch star, and the resemblance is uncanny. James is basically unrecognizable in a platinum blonde wig and black leather lace-up top. 

“It’s great to be blonde. With low expectations it’s very easy to surprise people,” James captioned the post, quoting Anderson.

The response to James’ post was an overwhelming WHOA. “You are a shape shifter. Wow,” commented one fan. “So spot on,” added another.

On Friday, Hulu also released a first look at Lily James as Pamela Anderson and her co-star Sebastian Stan as Tommy Lee for the upcoming limited series. Stan, covered in fake tattoos and piercings, will play the Mötley Crüe drummer.

Anderson and Lee were married in 1995 after knowing each other for 96 hours and divorced in 1998, and shared a very public relationship ripe with Tabloid scandals.
