Actress Pamela Anderson visited WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange at London's Belmarsh high-security prison, where he is being held on charges for violating his conditions of bail in 2012.
Anderson stated that Assange would not survive extradition to the United States, according to TMZ.
The actress became one of the first people to visit the whistleblower in the British prison.
Anderson has been visiting the Wikileaks founder in Ecuadorian Embassy in London for many years and is "deeply concerned" about him and his well-being.
She told the network that "we're talking about saving somebody's life."
"Seeing him today for the first time… I just know that it's very urgent and it's really important that people know who he really is, and we don't allow him to be extradited because I don't believe that he will be safe in Americans' hands.
We need to keep him in the public eye, we need to keep talking about it, and we need to give as much support as we can for this person who has just trying to tell us the truth, the truth that we all deserve to know," she stated.
Anderson, alongside WikiLeaks Editor-in-Chief Kristinn Hrafnsson, told reporters that Assange is an innocent person and does not deserve to be in a super-max prison.

Anderson has highlighted the shocking condition the journalist has to live in and noting the fact he has been cut off from the whole world,
"We just have to keep fighting because it's unfair, he's sacrificed so much to bring the truth out, and we deserve the truth. And that's all I can say", Anderson said.
Assange was sentenced to 50 weeks in prison for skipping bail in the UK.
He received his jail sentence in a UK court last month for jumping bail in Great Britain in 2012.
Judge Deborah Taylor said Assange merited near the maximum sentence of one year due to the seriousness of his offense.
She rejected Mr. Assange's claim for leniency because of the nearly seven years he spent in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.
