Kate Flannery’s sweet Office success

The Philadelphia Daily News chats with Kate Flannery about how the success of The Office has changed her life:

Not so long ago, the Philly-born actress wouldn’t quit her waitressing job until NBC picked up “The Office” for a second season.

“My boss said to me on my last day, ‘We were going to get you a cake, but you’ll be back,’ ” Flannery recalled during a recent NBC party in Pasadena, Calif., hours after learning the show had already been picked up for a fourth season.

“I’ve had a lot of almosts in my career,” she said.
