James Lipton’s questions

I was saddened to hear of James Lipton’s death just the other week. I can’t say I’ve seen all the Inside the Actors Studio but everything I have seen is fascinating. I particularly remember re-watching the Robin Williams episode the week he died. Lots of death on my mind today apparently.

In any case, I felt inspired to write my answers to his famous ten questions. Here they are. They may chance tomorrow.
