33 year old The Office actor John Krasinski has revealed that he is getting very emotional about the fact that the hit comedy series is finally coming to an end. John claims that he was worried from day one that The Office would not even be picked up but now, after so many years, he feels very attached to the show.
Krasinski explained to VMAN, “I get so emotional to think that we're ending the show. But I'm unbelievably proud to be a part of one that actually gets to end. Instead of being asked to leave, I actually get a shot at bringing the whole story and all the characters to a close.”
He added, “We actually had a guy come down every Friday to the set and he'd be like, 'Ah man, this episode's so great. It's going so well. The dailies are looking great. You know this is the last episode, right? We're not going to pick it up'.”
John continued, “And I was like, 'Can I at least get these on DVD to show my mum?' And he actually did give me the first six episodes on DVD, because we were sure we actually weren't going to get picked up.”
It was recently claimed that there would be a spinoff of The Office which focuses on the character Dwight and would be called The Farm. However, this idea has since been rejected and will not be getting made.
