There are probably many things “Office” fans don’t know about the popular series. But an interesting revelation comes from the man who played Dwight Schrute, who revealed that while it was a great time, playing the role during the long hours on set could be exhausting. “Yes. It’s great fun. It’s really too much fun. The hours are tough,” Rainn Wilson said while answering questions from fans on Reddit. “It’s hard to be funny at 7am – then shoot all day and have to be just as funny at 6pm but we get paid well for it so SWALLOW IT WILSON!”
It’s great that Wilson has kept that positive attitude, because pulling through with a person like Dwight Schrute definitely takes serious dedication, and the hard work that went into it seems to have paid off handsomely in the long run. Wilson seems pretty happy with the results, as he has stated that he never tires of hearing about fans loving Dwight. “No, I’m not getting tired of that. It was a great experience,” Wilson told ET Canada (via YouTube). “I got to be a part of a really great TV show of all time.”
While the experience with Dwight Schrute was difficult at times, it seems to have been a rewarding experience for the actor and those who continue to appreciate the best episodes of The Office.
