We did a screen test and so, they brought in cameras, and then there were four Jims and four Pams, and we got mix-and-matched. Every time I was matched with John, it was so easy and it just was so natural. On the second day of auditions he leaned over to me and he said, ‘You’re my favorite Pam.’ And I said, ‘You’re my favorite Jim! Oh my gosh! I hope we both get it!’ So, when they called me and said that I got the role, I said, ‘Who’s Jim? Please say John Krasinski.’ They said, ‘Yes, it’s John Krasinski.’ And I knew. I started to cry and I knew that the two of us together… I couldn’t be Pam without him. He’s my Jim. He just is.
And MPs break spontaneously into a love song.
Wow. What a realistic view of relationships. Painful but true.
I’m glad our love is the kind that I don’t have to think about, it just is. I have never had to convince myself to love a certain part of you because it all just comes naturally. I think our love is quiet on the outside but meaningful on the inside.
Thank you for letting me go do my own thing and always letting me come back.
