Widely regarded as one of the best comedy series of all time, you’d imagine anyone who was a part of The Office would look back on that time fondly. For one actor though, the thought of reprising his role from the TV series doesn’t interest him at all.
Zach Woods, who played Gabe Lewis in the US sitcom from season 6 onwards, has no ambitions of bringing the character back for more office-based shenanigans. Indeed, he insists he wouldn’t want anyone to have to take on the role.
Speaking to ComicBook.com, Woods spoke fondly of his time on the show, but revealed the experience of playing Gabe is not something he would wish on anyone.
“I loved playing Gabe, but that was my first TV job. That poor man, I would be happy to never spend another instant in his skin. Even though I have great affection for him,” Woods said.
“It was a fun part to play because it’s a funny show, but to be Gabe is not something I would wish on anybody, especially on Gabe,” he added.
Woods has followed in the footsteps of The Office co-star Steve Carell by appearing in a number of comedy movies since his days at Dunder Mifflin. You would imagine the doors to the paper company are well and truly closed for good too, after a fitting finale in 2013.
