For one, her receptionist role made her so relatable, and the connection she had with her co-worker, Jim played by John Krasinski seemed so real and attainable. Jenna Fischer may have landed a role that made her famous, but it did not happen over night. In fact, she had a slew of low-paying jobs before she landed the role of Pam. Nevertheless, when she was cast in The Officeit did not take long for fans to connect with her character, and to become one hundred percent invested in her and Jim's love story.
Although the role in question is the one that made her famous, it's certainly not the only thing she should be recognized for, and even her TV husband Jim, would agree. The two had an amazing relationship on the show, but we have to wonder if there was ever a chance that it could have become more in real life. If these two would have gotten together in real life though, these photos are not ones Jim would want us ogling. Look away, Jim! Fischer starred in the Will Ferrell film, Blades of Glory.
Jenna took a vacation earlier this year in January, and posted some photos for her fans. In one of her IG posts, she stated she was staying at The Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara, and although we can tell that the location is incredible, when looking at this photo of Pam, the background seems irrelevant. Jenna Fischer attended the Toronto International Film Festival in and she looked absolutely gorgeous. We never really got to see Pam change her hairstyle much throughout her run on The Officeso seeing her with a sleek, sophisticated bun is definitely refreshing.
We just wish Jim got to see more of it while starring alongside her on The Office. Jim Halpert, on the other hand, might. The Office star graced the cover of Shape magazine and talked about maintaining a slim and healthy figure, along with also maintaining a sense of humor. She also talked about how she had to take on a variety of lower paying jobs before she got her big break. This just makes us love her more. We assume Jim would have loved to see his former TV wife looking so fresh-faced while reading a newspaper in bed, and having her breakfast, too.
We know that the two were only married in a fictional world, but their chemistry was undeniable. This is the reason fans still ship Jim and Pam to this day. She definitely had a lot to celebrate. Fortunately for fans but unfortunately for Jimthe audience finally got to see Jenna Fischer as a guest on The Tonight Show, and the main focus was certainly on her toned legs.
This one might make Jim Halpert a little sad… We know that on The OfficeJim and Pam were total couple goals, but it would appear as though in real life, Pam and her real life husband Lee Kirk, are true couple goals. The two have been married for nearly 10 years, and they look as happy as can be, even to this day.
Okay, okay, we know that the real Jim Halpert, John Krasinski, is happily married to wife Emily Blunt, and the two have been this way ever since they tied the knot inbut when looking at stunning photos of Pam, like the one above, we have to wonder if he ever thinks about how life could have looked like if he married his TV wife. Who knew Pam Beesly had such a perfectly curvy body? This photo might be pretty shocking for lots of Office fans to see, after all, we are so used to seeing Pam wearing clothes that do not really accentuate her curves.
Sorry, Jim. The Office fans will surely adore this photo. Jenna posted this photo on Twitter and wrote: I love rainnwilson's book so much I hired narcissusholmes to photograph me reading it.
Anyone who has watched The Office knows that Pam did not have the best relationship with her co-worker from accounting, Angela. In fact, Angela's particular and pretty stuck-up character made it hard for anyone to become friends with her with the exception of Dwight, of course.
Regardless of the way Angela's character was on the show though, it is not an accurate representation of the way she is in real life. Case in point: Pam and Angela are actually best friends in real life. She actually presented the publication in at Left Bank Books. We know Michael Scott would appreciate the pun.
We never really saw Pam wearing anything other than her usual business attire a blouse and a skirtso getting to see a photo of her in a casual t-shirt makes us happy.She was also a producer for the show's final season. Fischer was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana and raised in St. LouisMissouri. Louis, a workshop also attended by actor Sean Gunnwith whom she grew up.
She was noticed by a talent agent because of her appearance in a musical theater adaptation of the film Nosferatu with Zoo District Theatre company. This led to her signing a contract with that agent. Fischer struggled to break into film and television.
Three years elapsed from the time she arrived in California until Fischer landed her first televised speaking role. She played the part of a waitress on the television sitcom Spin City in Fischer appeared in bit parts in small independent films during her early years in Southern California, including Employee of the MonthLucky 13and The Specials. While her film career was slowly taking off, Fischer took matters into her own hands, writing, directing and starring in her own mockumentaryLolliLoveher only directing credit.
She began participating in The Artist's Waya self-led creativity seminar in book form. When we started it, it wasn't even supposed to be a real movie. It was just going to be an improv project for James and I to amuse ourselves with.
LolliLove premiered at the St. Louis arts and entertainment magazine  that the experience dissuaded her from any future directing:. The directing was exhausting and the writing was painful. It was very difficult to direct and star in a movie.
We also had a very small crew so I did a lot of things a normal director doesn't have to do, like make the props and serve lunch. I was simultaneously getting into character, going over my lines, set dressing the next shot, coaching an actor, and brainstorming with my DP [cinematographer]. I'm good at multitasking, but that was too much for me. I couldn't enjoy any one part the way I would have liked. I think I'll stick to acting. Before her initial audition, casting director Allison Jones advised Fischer, "Dare to bore me.
Soon after The Office premiered, Fischer was focused on the show's success; in an April interview with her alma mater 's student newspaper, she said: "Honestly it would be great to get to play Pam for a long, long time I don't have real big aspirations to be a movie star.
I would love to be on a long-running hit TV show. You end up playing a defining role. Also that summer, she completed filming on the Farrelly brothers comedy Hall Passwhich was released in February InFischer starred in the music video for Willie Wisely's single "Through Any Window", directed by longtime friend John Cabrera ; the opportunity arose because she knew Wisely from work he had done on soundtracks for LolliLove and Tromeo and Julietone of her husband's films. In December of the same year, during the Hollywood writer's strikeFischer appeared at Sacred Fools Theater Company in episode 25 of Darque Magicka serialized play written and directed by Jenelle Riley.
LouisMissouriwhere she grew up. In MarchFischer returned to the area to co-chair an annual auction for Nerinx Hall High Schoolher alma mater. At the event, she auctioned off a set visit to The Office and multiple autographed props from the show.
Fischer was named an official spokeswoman for Proactiv Skincare Solutions in  and was announced as the voice behind the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board Grilled Cheese Academy website in Fischer was named as producer of the mid-August through October run of the critically acclaimed play Sad Happy Suckerwritten by her husband Lee Kirk and directed by friend Sean Gunn. The play previously ran as a theatre workshop in February and March On September 11,Fischer announced via Twitter  that she and Angela Kinsey will be co-hosting a weekly podcast called Office Ladies.
According to her announcement, she and Kinsey will "watch an episode of The Office and give you all the stories and behind-the-scenes scoop Fischer and Kinsey have continued to record the podcast during the COVID pandemic by producing it from their own homes—recording segments in their closets as they have commented on during the podcasts.She is initially as receptionist at Dunder Mifflin Paper Company, before becoming a saleswoman, and eventually an office administrator until her termination in the series finale.
She shares a romantic relationship with Jim Halpertand begins dating him in the fourth season.
They get married in season six and have two children over the course of the series. Pam's kindness and compassion means she is well liked amongst her co-workers, and develops strong relationships with them as the series progresses.
At the start of the series, Pam had been dating Roy Anderson for eight years, and been engaged to him for three years. Pam does not want her current job to become permanent, remarking that "I don't think it's many little girls' dream to be a receptionist.
However, in the pilot episode, she breaks down crying when Michael Scott pulls an ill-advised prank by telling her that she will be fired. Michael has criticized Pam for simply forwarding calls to voice mail without answering and in a deleted scene for not sounding enthusiastic enough when speaking on the telephone. Pam is usually happy to abandon her work if asked to do something else by Jim. She will do extra, unnecessary work such as making a casket for a dead bird or paper doves for the Office Olympics to make other people happy.
In later seasons, however, she becomes more honest and forward with Michael and will often make sarcastic comments toward him. While engaged to Roy, Pam denies, or is in denial about, having any romantic feelings for Jim. When Jim confesses his love for her in "Casino Night" she turns him down.
She later talks to her mom on the phone and says Jim is her best friend though she doesn't say his nameand says "Yeah, I think I am" to an unheard question. She is interrupted by Jim, who enters and kisses her; she responds by kissing back. Season three marks a turning point for Pam's character: she gains self-confidence and appears less passive and more self-assured as the season progresses.
Jim and Pam appeared to have ended all communication after Jim transfers to the Stamford branch aside from an episode in which Jim accidentally calls Pam at the end of the work dayand their episodes together following the branch merge are tense, despite both admitting to still harboring feelings for the other during the presence of the documentary cameras.
Meanwhile, Roy vows to win Pam back.
Roy's efforts to improve his relationship with Pam are quite successful, but once Pam and Roy are back together, he falls back into old habits almost immediately. When Roy and Pam attend an after work get-together at a local bar with their co-workers, Pam, feeling that she should be more honest with Roy, tells him about Jim kissing her in "Casino Night.Pam's humor is frequently underestimated and she has a lot of great moments throughout the entire series that tend to be overshadowed by Michael's crazy storylines and Dwight's latest antics.
Pam makes her audience laugh just as much as she can make them cry. She is also the most relatable character on the show, making her big moments some of the most memorable ones for fans. Whether it be humorous or heartbreaking, Pam always delivers and her quotes seem to still ring true, even today.
Pam is really struggling with how distant she and Jim have been and she confronts him in front of all of their co-workers. She tells him she called off her wedding for him and then goes on to say, " And things are just like, weird between us, and that sucks. And I miss you. Pam can be pretty sassy and when she is, it always gets a laugh.
Pam is particularly fiery with co-workers like Angela. Angela and Pam are two very different people and it seems the only way Pam can tolerate her co-worker as much as she does is to sass her behind her back, so it doesn't come out in a fit of rage to Angela's face. In this particular moment, Pam suggests flipping a coin to make a tough decision, but Angela negates Pam's idea, explaining that she doesn't like to gamble.
After Pam calls off her wedding to Roy, fans expected Jim and Pam to finally get their happily ever after. Pam expected that too. Instead, Jim takes a job in Stamford and starts a new life with a new girlfriend named Karen.
When Pam finds out that Jim is seeing someone, she's devastated, but does her best not to show it. She puts on a brave face to convince herself and everyone else at work that she is okay with Jim moving on and is even happy for him. Of course, everyone sees right through it. Pam and Jim have successfully dodged Michael and Jan's dinner invitations for months. In a moment of weakness, Jim accidentally agrees to dinner with the crazy couple and of course, Pam must go with him. When they get to Michael and Jan's house, it's even weirder than they ever anticipated.
Jan hasn't started cooking yet and claims it will take four hours before anything is ready, sending Pam into panic mode knowing she won't be leaving this bizarre situation anytime soon. This quote is heartbreakingly good because it's what Pam says after Jim asks her out on their first date. At this point in the series, Pam has convinced herself that Jim is not the one for her and she's telling the cameras that she'll be fine without him, though it's clear she is lying in that moment.
Jim interrupts her sadness to ask her to dinner that night. Pam instantly beams and accepts his offer, then turns back to the cameras, forgetting what they were previously talking about. In season five, Pam's job as the office's receptionist is threatened after a new phone system is introduced.
In trying to defend herself and her place at work, Pam comes up with a list of things she can do that a machine could never do, but she quickly negates her entire list, realizing her job description is obsolete in a time of new technology. Another quote that made fans cry happy tears.
Watching Jim and Pam's love story develop is what kept audiences coming back to the show week after week. Once they finally do get together, the payoff for viewers is fantastic because it's clear this couple was meant to be. The best part is, both Jim and Pam know they were destined for one another and they aren't afraid to show it to each other and express it to their viewers.
Pam finished this quote by saying, "My kids are gonna be right about that. Michael tells Pam that his mind is "going a mile an hour", and this is Pam's response. One of the most fun relationships in the entire show is that of Pam and Michael. Pam knows Michael better than anyone. She knows him so well that she also knows when she can take a jab at him and it will go unelected because Michael is so caught up in whatever he is saying or doing at the moment. This is one of those times that Pam makes a jab at Michael's expense, but only fans really pick up on it, making it even funnier.The Office ran on NBC for nine seasons, wrapping in But as it turns out, the show had originally planned to split up the lovebirds in season 9.
The Office follows the employees of the Scranton, Pennsylvania, branch of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company as they are filmed for a docuseries. After flirting nearly every episode, Jim and Pam finally confirmed their relationship in season 4 and tied the knot in season 6 — after Pam found out she was pregnant.
Pam got pregnant again in season 8 after the writers decided to write in Fischer's real-life pregnancy. And there was going to be a reunion episode where you see that Jim and Pam have split up by this time, and they will have their reunion in the reunion episode," writer Brent Forrester says of the twist in the book, Collider and Vulture reported. The writers even wanted to introduce a relationship triangle with Pam and the docuseries' cameraman, Brian.
Brian was first seen during season 9 as Pam and Jim's relationship grew strained after he took a job in Philadelphia. The two had a tense phone call, and Brian was there to comfort Pam afterward.
Writer Owen Ellickson says in the book that there were talks of Pam and Brian possibly "hooking up a little bit," Collider reported.The Office - Jim \u0026 Pam's Love Story
They never did anything. It was just to introduce worry in the audience," Ellickson says in the book. Nonetheless, the writers didn't go forward with Brian and Pam or her split with Jim, as Krasinski says it would be too "painful" for fans.
John Krasinski said to me, 'Brent, this final season is for the ultra fans of the show. They're the only ones really still left watching, right? This is for them. Jim and Pam splitting up is too painful for them to sustain all the way to the reunion. We have to get them back together immediately. It's too awful for them,' " Forrester says in the book, the Collider reported. Krasinski, 40, and Fischer, 46, opened up about their on-camera relationship, saying in the book that they hit it off immediately.
