Pamela’s great-grandfather, Juho Hyytiäinen, a Finn, moved to Canada from the Grand Duchy of Finland (part of the Russian Empire at the time) in 1908 and changed his surname to Anderson. Pamela has Russian ancestry on her mother’s side - her Russian great-grandmother immigrated to Netherlands and then to Canada.

Early fame came to Pamela right after she was born: she was called a Centennial Baby by the press due to the fact that she was born on the 100th anniversary of Canada’s official founding and the issue of the Constitution Act in 1867.

Pamela was a very shy child. Many years later, she revealed that she was molested by her nanny for four years and raped by a 25-year-old guy at the age of twelve. Apart from that, at the age of fourteen, Anderson was gang-raped by her boyfriend and his six friends.

These grave experiences made the girl move to Vancouver after finishing school. Pamela, who was good at sports in high school, got a job as a fitness instructor in Vancouver.

Playboy empowered me. It really saved my life. I felt very trapped inside and needed to free myself. It was a breakthrough for me, and there I met artists and activists and gentleman. It has been a fun and wild life.

After moving to Los Angeles, Pamela was cast in a secondary role in the comedy series Tool Time Girl. After two seasons, Anderson left the show to take up the lead role in the Baywatch TV series about California beaches’ lifeguards.
