In the interests of inquiring minds (like mine) and in honor of the release of Gabriel’s Rapture Part Two at Passionflix, I asked author Sylvain Reynard the ten questions used by James Lipton on Inside the Actors Studio.
You might have heard these questions debut during my recent podcast interview with Melanie Zanetti. (You’ll never think of the word “mellifluous” the same way ever again!) They’re the same questions Lipton used on the show, and now I’m borrowing them to learn more about our favorite Passionflix actors and writers.
Even when you think you know someone, you’re bound to learn something new. These ten questions offer keen – and amusing – insight into a person’s psyche and that makes them perfect for the always enigmatic Sylvain Reynard.
