Pamela attended Highland Secondary School in Comox, British Columbia where she played for the school’s volleyball team, graduating in 1985. By 1988, Anderson took a job as a fitness instructor in Vancouver and following a chance feature on the Jumbotron of a Canadian Football League game, she was made a spokesmodel for Labatt Beer because she was wearing their shirt.
In 1989, Anderson got the attention of Playboy magazine and was featured on its October 1989 issue. She soon after moved to Los Angeles, California to pursue a career in modeling and elected to further increase her breast size through surgery, from a 34D to 34DD. She in the meantime also kickstarted her acting career, making appearances in some television series before landing a minor recurring role in the comedy series Home Improvement (1991–1993).
Anderson left the show after she was cast as C. J. Parker on Baywatch, in what turned out to be her career-defining role as she stayed on the show for five seasons to become one of its longest-serving members. She went on to appear in other movies such as Barb Wire (1996), V.I.P (1998 – 2002), and Scary Movie 3 (2003).
Pamela Anderson has since gone ahead to become one of the most recognizable faces in the modeling industry, something she has used to good effect in fighting for causes close to her heart such as animal rights where she protests against the use of fur among other things.
