Johnson, who had a cameo role as an accountant named Dakota in the final episode, said that she felt ignored and unwelcome by the cast and crew, who were dealing with their own emotions and tensions as the show came to an end.

Johnson expressed her dissatisfaction during her appearance on ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’, referring to her time filming the finale as “honestly the worst time of my life.”

“I love that show so much, and they were like, ‘Do you want to be in the series finale?’ and I was like, ‘Of course,’ thinking that I’d show up for, like, half a day,” Johnson said. “And then I was there for two weeks, and I was in the background of all of these scenes, faxing things.”

Johnson said that she expected to have a brief and fun appearance, but instead she faced a challenging and uncomfortable environment, where some cast members didn’t speak to each other or to her.

“They were sad… there were weird dynamics that had been going on for the last 10 years,” Johnson said. “Some people didn’t speak to each other… no one wanted to talk to me, nobody gave a f**k.”

Johnson was one of many celebrities who made appearances in the finale, which also featured the return of Steve Carell, Mindy Kaling, and B.J. Novak, among others. However, Johnson said that she had minimal screen time despite the extended period of shooting, appearing in just two scenes and background shots due to the show’s documentary style.

Johnson also revealed that her character was supposed to lead a spinoff, but she expressed doubts about its creative viability. She said that she didn’t know how a spinoff starring her character would work, and that she believed that some stories should end when they are supposed to end.

Johnson’s cameo in the finale was aired in 2013, but she only recently spoke about her experience on “The Office.” Meyers, who is a fan of “The Office,” joked that he recently watched the finale and that Johnson’s faxing was “some of the most believable faxing” he had ever seen.
