'The Office' changed John Krasinski's life.
The 33-year-old actor was a waiter before he landed the role of Jim Halpert on the NBC show and Krasinski - who is married to Emily Blunt - will always be grateful for what it did for him.
He told Us Weekly: "To say this show gave me everything is the biggest understatement. I was a waiter before 'The Office' so to me, this was a winning lottery ticket. Everything about my life has changed."
Krasinski admits he is "emotional" about the end of the show, and while he doesn't want to say goodbye, is happy he and his cast mates have the opportunity to bring their storylines to a satisfactory conclusion.
He said: "I get so emotional to think that we're ending the show. But I'm unbelievably proud to be a part of one that actually gets to end. Instead of being asked to leave, I actually get a shot at bringing the whole story and all the characters to a close."
