You probably remember Jenna Fischer for her appearance in The Office. From 2005 to 2013 she portrayed "Pam Beesly" in the American television sitcom. Her character seemed to be one of the steadiest ones in the show and often balanced out some of the more extravagant ones. 

The Office: "Pam" was a strong character

Throughout the series "Pam" finds out how to stand up for herself and pursue what she really wants in life; she was definitely unique and made The Office fans laugh more than once. We will always remember her for some of her most funny quotes like "I don't care about what they say about me. I just want to eat."
