Lily James and Sebastian Stan’s new show Pam & Tommy finally dropped on Hulu, and apparently Lily and Sebastian went full method. Like to the point where they didn’t know each other outside of their on-screen characters.
During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Lily said she and Sebastian “never really saw each other outside of character,” while he added “It’s true. I texted Lily early on, I said, ‘Listen, I’m scared shitless, and I’m gonna need to hold your hand, and if you want to hold mine, we’re here, we’re in this together.’ And then I didn’t see her outside of Pamela until the end of the shoot.”

“I think we were both just terrified to play these characters,” Sebastian said. “They’re real-life people. I don’t have tattoos on my body. I think we both would just, on repeat, listen to their voices and their interviews. And I know we both did this we would actually scream into pillows in between the scenes because I was trying to get my voice raspy to sound like him, and you were doing that too. So I was like, ‘You’re screaming into a pillow as well?!'”

Apparently Lily even used Pam’s voice to chat with her family in England. “I would FaceTime them as Pamela and talk to them as Pamela,” she said. “But then I think the other day my brother came around for lunch when I was at home in England. I had a picture of Pamela, a Playboy picture of her, she looks incredible. My little brother came and goes, ‘No, Lily! God, no.’ And I was ‘No, no, it’s not me. It’s Pamela!’ And I’m worried that I ruined Pamela Anderson for him, which would be such a tragedy!”
Give them all the Emmys!
