A native of
Canada, Lee was born on Vancouver Island, and later moved to the
city of Vancouver. It was while she attended a British Columbia
Lions football game that Lee was "discovered" in a most unusual
way. Dressed in a Labatt's Beer T-shirt, her image was transmitted
on the stadium's wide screen. The fans cheered the beautiful girl,
and she was brought down to the 50-yard line and introduced to
the appreciative crowd. As a result, she was signed to a commercial
contract with Labatt's and became the company's "Blue Zone" girl.
The campaign was so popular that other commercials and advertising
assignments for Lee soon followed. Due to the recognition from
these commercials she was soon approached to do her first cover
for Playboy magazine. Pamela has since gone on to grace the cover
again an astounding five times, more than any other woman in the
magazine's history. With the success and recognition she garnered
from Playboy, Lee soon moved to Los Angeles where she spent two
seasons in the top-ten ABC Television hit series "Home Improvement"
(1991) as Lisa, the Tool Time Girl. It was on "Home Improvement"
that she captured the attention and affection of viewing audiences
nationwide. At the same time, Lee was cast as 'C.J. Parker' on
the internationally successful series "Baywatch" (1989) but because
of the impossible schedule of working on two hit shows, she eventually
left "Home Improvement" and remained full-time on "Baywatch".
She now stars on one of the most phenomenally popular television
programs of all time, which is seen in 140 countries worldwide.
Recently, Lee made the transition into the feature film arena,
starring in Dark Horse Entertainment's action comedy Barb Wire
(1996). In addition, Lee was featured in the CBS movie-of-the-week,
_Come Die with Me: A Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer Mystery (1994)(TV)_
, a hip and updated Mike Hammer mystery, co-starring Rob Estes.
Pamela was married to Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee (VI), and
the couple had two children. However, the couple divorced in early
