i stumbled across a clip of inside the actors studio a few days ago and immediately remembered how much i enjoyed watching the show. if you haven’t seen it, i highly recommend catching an episode or two with your favorite actors/actresses.
towards the end of each program, host James Lipton asks his guest the same ten questions. on the surface they appear to be such simple questions, but it’s amazing what types of answers they often lead to. out of fun, i thought i’d share the responses i’d give should i ever find myself up on the stage in the show. if you want to add yours, i’d love you hear your responses in the comment section below.
