'The Office' Finds Pam's Sister in 'True Blood' Star


Anna Camp


Pam's family is shaping up as an actress from the vampire show has been cast to be Penny Beesly.

Anna Camp will travel from Bon Temps to Scranton for a wedding. The actress who plays anti-vampire Sarah Newlin on "True Blood" has been billed to fill in a guest spot at "The Office" as Pam's sister named Penny.

A rep from the show has told E! Online that Camp's Penny will be at the wedding of Pam and Jim which is held at Niagara Falls. No word yet whether Penny will discover Pam's secret of carrying Jim's baby. The episode is scheduled to be held in the fourth episode airing October 8.

To go along with the family affair storyline, an actress has been hired to be Pam's mom earlier this month. Linda Purl, who was relatively unknown, nabbed the role because an average actress would suit the show's chemistry.

Premiering September 17, the new season will pick up a few months after the fifth season finale when Pam and Jim discovered that they are going to be parents. In the episode called "Gossip", words are flying that at least one employee is pregnant, one is cheating on his or her partner, and one is questioning his or her sexuality.

    I was thinking the same thing - she's hardly an unknown! Maybe if you're under 30 though, you're less likely to recognize her.
