Angela Kinsey and Ellie Kemper of The Office have done some more interview segments that have now been uploaded to NBC.com. (They’re not technically “new” segments, but they’re newly released. This is because they’re in the same clothing as some earlier segments, so unless they both wear the same clothing at the same time – it’s too confusing to even type out, let alone imagine.) We also have the video clips available for you to watch here. Nothing wrong with being lazy! (Unless you’re in law school.)
Kinsey, who can get very insightful when she’s not being hilarious, said of character growth, “I’ve said this before, and I really believe it, that our writers have done an excellent job of finding ways for our characters to grow, but without changing who they are. Because when you watch a TV show, you want your characters to be who they are. You don’t want their arc to change too much.”
When asked which of The Office character’s they’d take fashion tips from, Ellie said, “I know mine. Kelly.” She added, “And not only because I know Erin sort of has a girl crush on Kelly.” Back when I interviewed Mindy Kaling and Ellie Kemper I asked them about fashion, too. I remember that Kemper thought Erin probably would have fannypacks as an accessory for the Erin Doll.
“Here’s my challenge to you – find Kelly (in) season 1. When she had Mom hair and like, a bun.” – Kinsey
“What that (style choice) ever explained?” – Kemper
