The Grinder actress, 42, tweeted about her and Krasinski’s beloved characters, Pam Beesly and Jim Halpert, in response to a fan. “I’m watching the office for the first time and I’m very sadden to hear that you two aren’t together in real life,” the commenter wrote.
Fischer retweeted the message, and said: “If it you makes you feel better, I found my Jim and he found his Pam-they just happened to be named Lee and Emily.”
Fischer and Krasinski, 36, starred on the hit NBC comedy from 2005 to 2013. Jim had a huge crush on Pam as they worked together at the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. The best friends finally got together in season 2, eventually tied the knot and had two daughters together.
The stars found love off screen, too. Fischer and her husband, writer-director Lee Kirk, married in 2010 and are parents of son Weston, 4, and daughter Harper, 2. Krasinski and Emily Blunt tied the knot the same year and are parents of daughters Hazel, 2, and 1-month-old Violet.
Krasinski opened up about the series while promoting his film The Hollars at the Sundance Film Festival in January. “There’s no two ways about it, being on The Office was the greatest thing that I could have ever imagined,” he said during a panel at the time.

“I’ve never been a dramatic or comedy guy, it’s just sort of, ‘Where’s the good story?’ and The Office was one hell of a story to be a part of for 10 years, for sure. After that, I was just, like, ‘I want to be a part of good stories rather than just getting work,'” he continued. “Obviously, The Office afforded me the opportunity to just wait a second and sort of wait to choose things that I really cared about. That was huge; I owe it all to the show.”
