Angela Kinsey Shares Photos of The Office's Final Season
"Hanging with Ellie in the Caffeine Corner!" Angela Kinsey says of this smiling shot with costar Kemper, who plays Erin. "Ellie is one of the sweetest, most bubbly, fun people to be around ... I loved in the mornings when we were often in hair and makeup at the same time … We would just gab like two little kids about anything and everything."
"The best place to sit for nine years ... the Accounting Corner!" says Kinsey, while hanging with Oscar Nuñez (who plays Oscar) and Brian Baumgartner (who plays Kevin). "I sat there with those two guys for nine years ... I just love them. Those guys are like brothers to me."
ROOM WITH A VIEW
"I know I'll cry when the finale airs. That's like a given. I've known that all along," says Kinsey, who took this photo of the view from the regional manager's office. "I cried at the table read. I cried while we were filming it. I'm for sure going to cry while I'm watching it."
"This is one of my favorite pictures of Leslie [David Baker] playing Stanley," Kinsey says. "That look he gives mixed with the Christmas decorations is priceless."
WE ARE FAMILY
"We've become our own family – our own odd, dysfunctional, TV family," Kinsey says of the cast, which includes Craig Robinson, John Krasinski and Baumgartner, seen here at Schrute Farms. "It's so nice to know these episodes will always be there for us to reminisce on that time in our lives."
"Hanging with my BFF," Angela says of costar Jenna Fischer. "She'll always be in my life and I'll always have that friendship. But it's so fun to work with one of your best friends. I'll miss working with her, but I'm so happy that she's not going anywhere."
"This is Pam's painting of the Dunder Mifflin office. It hung by front reception on set," Kinsey says. "Whenever I think about the show and all these years, the word that comes to me is thankful ... We didn't even know we'd make it. The first season was only six episodes. The fans just rallied behind us, and nine years later, we're all having this wonderful goodbye."
IT'S ALL AN ACT
Though she's smiling here next to Creed Bratton, Catherine Tate (who plays Nellie) and Craig Robinson (who plays Darryl), Kinsey says she'll miss playing the feisty, uptight head of accounting. "I'm definitely someone who is pretty accommodating to everyone around, but sometimes it's nice to play someone who is going to have their way all the time and be prickly," she says. "Gosh it was fun to play it."
KEEPING IN TOUCH
"I was pretty emotional," Kinsey says of watching one of the final episodes of The Office, so she reached out to Baumgartner, seen here dressed up as Santa. "I knew Brian would answer, so I called. ... We talked on the phone for a bit. ... That little accounting corner, I will miss that."
"I'm so happy with the way our show ended," says Kinsey who took this photo of Bratton, Baumgartner, Phyllis Smith and Baker. "I don't have any regrets. I'm just so proud of the whole story this show told of these people."
