  • Lily James has revealed how being Pamela was her most challenging role yet "I've never worked so hard. I read the books Pamela has written, I read her poetry, I can parrot along to all her interviews."
    • She had to undergo four hours of makeup and wear a wig, a chest plate and some tan to bear a striking resemblance to Pamela. She said this about her transformation; "And then, of course, there was the physical transformation. Slowly, our incredible team found a balance where I resembled Pamela but also felt like I could act through it. I’ve never done anything where I look very different from myself before. And I’d really like to continue in this vein, because I felt there was something very freeing and liberating in it. There was a bravery that came from that. A courage that came from… disappearing."
  • Lily wears the iconic red swimsuit during scenes of Pamela's stint on Baywatch. However it has a different styled patch, which is shown to be on the right of the swimsuit instead of the left and slightly higher on the hip. This change was made for legal reasons.
