There is a great show on Bravo Channel (US) that interviews actors in front graduate level performing arts students. At the end of the hour long interview the actors are asked a series of questions that always reveal surprising results. I've modified it a little for this G-rated forum but have kept the basic theme of the questionaire.

What is your favorite word?
What is you least favorite word?
What sound do you love?
What sound do you hate?
What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
What profession other than yours would you hate to persue?
If heaven exists what would you liketo hear God say when you reach the Pearly Gates?

Looking forward to some interesting answers!
