Who is Regina Marie Fischer

Who is Regina Marie Fischer? The world knows her as Jenna Fischer. She is an Emmy Award-nominated[2] American actress, best known for her role as Pam Beesly in the U.S. adaptation of The Office.

Fischer and the rest of the cast from The Office received Screen Actors Guild Awards in 2006[3] and in 2007[4] for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.

Fischer was born born March 7, 1974[1] in Fort Wayne, Indiana, the daughter of Anne and Jim Fischer,[5] and was raised in St. Louis, Missouri. She attended Pierremont Elementary School, and later attended Nerinx Hall High School in suburban Webster Groves.[6] She received a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre from Truman State University.[7]

On October 7, 2000, Fischer married Hollywood filmmaker James Gunn, the brother of Fischer's lifelong friend Sean Gunn.[8]
In May 2007, while attending the NBC upfronts for her role in The Office, Fischer fell down a flight of stairs in a Manhattan bar and fractured her back.[9] She returned to the set in time for the fourth season's first episode.
On September 5, 2007, Fischer and Gunn announced they were separating after nearly seven years of marriage.[10] In a radio interview during the publicity tour of The Promotion, she said that her divorce was finalized.[11]
On September 24, 2008, People reported that Fischer was dating writer Lee Kirk.[12]
Fischer has a cat named Andy, whom she rescued while in college. Fischer also worked with the rescue organization Kitten Rescue in her spare time before landing her role on The Office.[13]

Fischer wrote, directed, and starred in the mockumentary LolliLove, co-starring her now ex-husband James Gunn, Linda Cardellini, Judy Greer, Lloyd Kaufman and Jason Segel. For her role in the film, Fischer was awarded a Screen Actors Guild Emerging Actor Award.[15] Her experience on the low-budget film (principal photography cost $1500, mostly for food) discouraged her from any future directorial aspirations, as she told a St. Louis arts and entertainment magazine:[16]

The directing was exhausting and the writing was painful. It was very difficult to direct and star in a movie. We also had a very small crew so I did a lot of things a normal director doesn’t have to do, like make the props and serve lunch. I was simultaneously getting into character, going over my lines, set dressing the next shot, coaching an actor, and brainstorming with my D.P. I’m good at multitasking, but that was too much for me. I couldn’t enjoy any one part the way I would have liked. I think I’ll stick to acting.

Prior to The Office, her short subject work includes the 2002 film Les Superficiales, a Peter Alton film; Alton later co-wrote and narrated LolliLove. Fischer had a starring role in a 2003 Instant Films short subject called The Girl's Guide to Summer, directed by Instant Film's cofounder (and camera operator) Charles Papert.[17]
She also had a one-episode guest star appearance on That 70's Show, in its seventh season episode "Don't Lie to Me".
