Bio

Jenna Fischer is an American actress best known for her portrayal of receptionist Pam Beesly on the US adaptation of The Office.

No stranger to television, Fischer includes among her credits guest-starring roles on Six Feet Under, That '70s Show, Cold Case, Miss Match, Strong Medicine, What I Like About You, Off Centre, Undeclared and Spin City.

Her feature film credits include Employee of the Month, Lucky 13 and The Specials, and the horror movie Slither from Universal Pictures.

Fischer wrote and directed the feature film Lollilove, starring herself, Linda Cardellini (ER), Judy Greer and her husband, James Gunn. As a result, Fischer was awarded the Screen Actors Guild Emerging Actor Award at last year's St. Louis Film Festival.

In addition, she received the Tromadance Independent Soul Award at the American Film Market. LolliLove was released on DVD in January 2006.

Fischer was raised in St. Louis, Missouri where, at the age of 5, she took her first acting class with Sean Gunn (Kirk on the Gilmore Girls).

Gunn and Fischer stayed in touch over the years and in October 2000, she married his brother – writer-director James Gunn.

Much like her character Pam on The Office, Fischer has a talent for administrative work and toiled for many years as both a receptionist and administrative assistant. She can type 85 words per minute with 90 percent accuracy.

A former volunteer with the animal rescue organisation Kitten Rescue as a foster parent for sick and injured cats, Fischer has a passion for animals.

She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, their dog Wesley and cat Andy.
