Rainn Wilson is super thankful to have been a part of a show like The Office.
The message, written on a napkin, read: ‘The Office got me through some of the darkest days of my life. I can’t thank you enough for that,’ signing off as ‘Sincerely, Melanie’, who works with Alaska Airlines.
Rainn captioned a picture of the note: ‘I didn’t even see who dropped this on my lap at the PDX airport but I greatly appreciate the sentiment, flight attendant Melanie of Alaska Airlines.
‘So humbled to be a part of a show that affected, touched, comforted and inspired. And continues to do so! It’s so f**king rare.’
‘A continuous Thank you to the whole Office family, cast, writers, crew and especially AUDIENCE! (Note: this is not an open invitation to give me notes on napkins!),’ he continued.

Despite Rainn being thankful for notes like the above, he did admit last year that he was ‘mostly unhappy’ during his time on the hit sitcom, which also starred the likes of Steve Carell, Jenna Fischer, John Krasinski and Kate Flannery.
In a July 2023 episode of Bill Maher’s Club Random podcast episode, he told the host: ‘When I was in The Office, I spent several years really mostly unhappy because it wasn’t enough.
‘I was making hundreds of thousands. I wanted millions, and I was a TV star, but I wanted to be a movie star. It was never enough.’
Rainn reflected that he was working with A-listers but still felt unfulfilled.
He added: ‘This is what I’m looking at now and realising now: I’m on a hit show, Emmy nominated every year, making lots of money working with, like, Steve Carell and Jenna Fisher and John Krasinski and these amazing writers and incredible directors like Paul Feig. I’m on one of the great TV shows. People love it. I wasn’t enjoying it.’

The US version of The Office continues to be loved around the world.
Website Ranker, which describes itself as the ‘worldwide leader in fan-powered rankings’, recently created a list titled ‘The 440+ Best Binge Worthy Shows Of All Time’… and there were some brilliant contenders on there, The Office included.
The show came in fourth place behind Game of Thrones, Stranger Things and Breaking Bad in the list.
The US sitcom first aired on NBC in 2005 before the finale was broadcast on May 16, 2013.
