Kimmy and Erin are very different characters, but Erin has a very dark backstory and has come out of it being Erin, and Kimmy has done the same.

Ellie Kemper: Yeah, exactly. They are different, but they’re definitely similar. Erin bounced around from foster home to foster home. I don’t know whether their cheeriness is in spite of what they’ve been through or how they managed to get through those horrible moments. But I think that something like that has to be innate, because I think both characters are strong, but for that optimism not to be shaken is pretty impressive.

My understanding is that Erin was originally written differently from that, and a bit more dry, and then they saw you and were like, “No.”

Ellie Kemper: I think so. In the audition, she was more sarcastic and a little cooler and I think they met me and were like, “Well, she’s not cool.”

What were you doing in the audition that would make them think that?

Ellie Kemper: I was reading with Ed Helms and I don’t really know what it was. If you go back and watch the first appearances of Erin, she is a little cooler. Like, I think Dwight is flirting with her at the front desk, and she has dark brown hair and she’s a little cooler. But then very quickly, I think, she gets a little weirder. That must have been from talking with Greg Daniels or something, which I don’t know whether to take as a compliment or an insult.

and she has dark brown hair

This jumped out at me on my rewatch.

I liked UKS (which is easier to type on a phone than Unbreaeekbl Kamny Schlitz), but I don't know if I'm up for a Season 2. I think they made just the right amount of episodes the first time. Maybe more than the right amount.

I would have enjoyed that Erin much more.
