Craig Gillespie’s vision

Beyond the sex, fun and rock n’ roll atmosphere, Pam & Tommy also has something of a classic tragedy in it. Director Craig Gillespie – who helmed the first three episodes – had something to do with it. He has become a specialist in the stories of wounded, abused women. First with the excellent Me Tonya in which he recounted the excesses of figure skater Tonya Harding. A heroine of reality who shares a certain number of past traumas with Pamela Anderson and this feat of having known how to stay upright in the media storm. Gillespie offers a new perspective, which encourages the viewer not to judge. Even when the woman in question is called cruella (Emma Stone), the director manages to create great empathy for his heroines.“Pam & Tommy touches on themes that I had already touched on in Me, Tonya, in the sense that we are talking about someone who society has really mistreated in the media. Who was ruined by public perception“, explained recently Craig Gillespie to Decide. “What’s interesting is how the media covered these stories and how the public consumed them. This series offered the opportunity to revisit this whole history (of the sex tape) through the prism of today and from a different angle”.

The mind-blowing transformation of Lily James and Sebastian Stan

More than an acting job, the two interpreters of Pam & Tommy morphed into Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee. Which was not obvious on paper. The Marvel star, better known to moviegoers as the Winter Soldier, has completely changed his look. Just like the silky smooth ex-lady of Downton Abbey : “I only met the real Lily James at the end of filming actually… I didn’t see her for a minute without her blonde wig while we were filming!” says Sebastian Stan in the magazine Première. “She was really inhabited, unrecognizable, physically, but also in her performance. It was crazy, incomparable with what she has been able to do so far.“He too gave of himself. The Romanian-born actor spent years building muscle to play Bucky Barnes at Marvel. And within months, he had to lose everything to play Tommy Lee:”I was trying to lose weight and always felt like I wasn’t losing enough weight.” he confesses to EW. “And people told me I was crazy!“Sebastian Stan spent months training like a madman for the role: “I was running, trying to do 20,000 steps a day, then fasting for 16-18 hours a day…” A real devotion that ended up offering a form of astonishing accuracy to this incredible series that is Pam & Tommy.
