Not only did the 32-year-old actress stun everyone with her uncanny transformation into the iconic Baywatch star, but months of studying Pamela’s accent and voice paid off as Lily gave an outstanding performance in the series.
So much so, that Lily herself is finding it hard to separate how second nature the American accent has become to her.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter during a red carpet appearance, Lily talked about what it was like portraying Pamela in the series - but had a noticeable American twang to her voice.
The British star said: “I think that’s her story and it’s so exciting and I can’t wait to watch it,” before becoming frustrated with herself for losing her British accent.
“I keep talking in an American accent,” Lily quickly added, “What is happening to me?”
“I’m English, Lily, I’m English,” she then said to herself before returning to the question.
Lily previously said she spent four hours in hair and makeup per day while she was filming Pam and Tommy alongside co-star Sebastian Stan who played Tommy Lee.
The actress also revealed she’d spent hours binge-watching footage of Pamela in order to perfect her accent and her mannerisms for the career-defining role.
