For nine seasons, Kirk’s wife, Jenna Fischer, and John Krasinski on-screen couple on The Office, Pam Beesly and Jim Halpert. Their on-screen chemistry was so good that even today some believe they are married for real or at least had an off-screen romance.

Moreover, both Fischer and Krasinski agreed that their chemistry was spot on. Remembering the first time she met Krasinski, Lee’s spouse said she and John danced in unison even though they’d never met before.

John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer played each other love interests in the hit NBC series, The Office.

She though later clarified that, in real life, they aren’t “totally Pam and totally Jim.” The actress concluded they were not the perfect match in real life. The co-stars admit that they though are really close friends to each other.
