During a guest star appearance on the chat show ‘Late Night With Seth Meyers,’ Dakota Johnson strolled down the memory lane on her 2013 shoot for The Office final episode.
Dakota Johnson is currently gearing up for her upcoming superhero flick, Madam Web, which is unveiling its sci-fi, heroic tale this Valentine's Day. Ahead of the film’s release on February 14, Johnson is immersed in the promotional events. During one such appearance on a talk show recently, the actress revealed shocking details, recalling a time she was shooting The Office Finale in 2013. She dubbed the time “worst for her life” because of several instances that didn't go as planned.
Dakota Johnson, who rose to prominent fame for starring as Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades franchise, recently took a trip down memory lane. She disclosed surprising facts about her guest appearance in NBC’s popular sitcom The Office, which concluded its finale in 2013 after a successful run of eight years. She dubbed the experience sour because, despite shooting for weeks, she is “barely in the show."
During a guest star appearance on the chat show ‘Late Night With Seth Meyers’ aired on February 7, the Fifty Grey actress spoke about her moral dilemma as she appeared in a cameo, which was supposed to hint at the Office spin-off series. Strolling down the bad experience lane, the persuasion actress said, “That was honestly the worst time of my life."
Explaining her overwhelming response to the opportunity to star in the final episode, Johnson added, “And I was like, ‘Of course,’ thinking that I’d show up for like half a day. And I was there for two weeks, and I’m barely in the fucking show."
The Office finale starred Dakota Johnson in the role of an accountant who was hired to replace Kevin. Recalling the strange dynamics and shoot experience that didn’t pan out like she planned, the 34-year-old actress said, “There were weird dynamics that had been going on for the last 10 years. Some people didn’t speak to each other.” She further added that the disappointment of not receiving the same enthusiasm and response from the existing castmates was quite awkward, as she felt the background star faxing things.
Interestingly, this cameo came after her breakthrough role in the erotic Fifty Shades movie. During the candid conversation, the chat show host revealed that even he was a part of the final episode and starred in the background scenes.
The Office is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
