Angela Kinsey's character (Angela Martin) on "The Office" might be cold, snooty, and uptight, but Kinsey is none of the above. In fact, she stopped by "Daytime in No Time" to chat with Nikki Boyer about her most tear-jerking, emotional moment while the filming the series finale.

While doing her final talking head (the scenes where characters talk one-on-one to the camera), she couldn't even get the words out: "They wanted me to stand in front of accounting, so this tiny corner in this room that I've sat at for nine years is right there. I have my script, and I just choke up and I can't talk. And I just start crying."

Showrunner Greg Daniels tried to console her by saying that it wasn't her last talking head. He ran off and wrote her another one on the spot. "I was able to get through this talking head because I knew I had one more," Kinsey says. And when he handed her that script, he said, "Now this is your last one." After filming it, they gave each other a big hug. "We just hugged there for a minute onstage. So I'll never forget that," Kinsey reminisces. Someone grab the tissues.

The series finale of "The Office," which also marks the comedy's 200th episode, airs on Thursday, 5/16 at 9 PM on NBC.
