Inside the Bloggers' Studio

‘Inside the Actors' Studio’ attracts the top film and TV actors, and interviews them in a one on one situation in front of a studio audience of drama students.

For more than twelve years, James Lipton, presenter and drama teacher, has sat down with more than 200 of the world's most accomplished artists – ranging from actors and directors to musicians and comedians — for penetrating, fascinating interviews. Lipton's studious research and enlightened curiosity has inspired his guests to open up and confess their deepest thoughts about their craft.

Each programme features the same 10 questions from James Lipton:

What is your favourite word?
What is your least favourite word?
What turns you on?
What turns you off?
What sound or noise do you love?
What sound or noise do you hate?
What is your favourite curse word?
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
What profession would you not like to do?
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

Seb, from artsWOM (the latest in word of mouth conversation on the arts - sponsored by Sky Arts), asked me those same 10 questions as part of their now well-established line of ‘Inside the Actors’ Studio’ homages, showcasing selected UK film and TV bloggers.
