"I respect his beliefs," Wilson said, while acknowledging that Gervais might not respect his. "I thank him for creating 'The Office' though. Because I wouldn't have a job without that and he's a brilliant mind."
As "The Office" comes to an end, Wilson said he plans to travel with his wife and young son. He knows that he may never again get a role as good as Dwight Schrute. But he's at peace with that, in part because of his Baha'i faith.
"My faith grounds me and centers me and gives me focus, and I'm very grateful for that."
