Regina Marie "Jenna" Fischer (born March 7, 1974) is an American television and film actress. She is most widely known for her Emmy-nominated portrayal of Pam Halpert (née Beesly) on the NBC situation comedy and mockumentary The Office, and has also appeared in several films, including Blades of Glory, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story and The Promotion.

Fischer was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana, but raised in the St. Louis, Missouri suburb of Manchester, the daughter of Jim, a plastics engineer, and Anne, a history teacher. Fischer has one younger sister, Emily, a third grade teacher. She experienced her first taste of performing at age six, when she participated in an acting workshop taught by her mother at Henry School in St. Louis, a workshop also attended by actor Sean Gunn, with whom she grew up.

Fischer attended Pierremont Elementary School in Manchester, Missouri and Nerinx Hall High School, a private all-girls Catholic school, in Webster Groves, Missouri. She received a bachelor of arts in theatre, as well as a minor in journalism, from Truman State University, where she worked on the school's student-produced newspaper and originally enrolled as a pre-law history major.
