INSIDE THE AUTHORS STUDIO: A
conversation with Bethany Crandell
James Lipton and I go back. Way back. The details of our meeting are hazy, and only vaguely remembered through ill-focused photographs and the black dagger tattoo on my left shoulder blade, but trust me when I tell you that James and I are bros. #goodlikethat
Because we’re so tight, (and because I fear retaliation from his mafia connections. Horse heads don’t make good bed mates), I knew that declining his request for an interview wasn’t an option. So, last month I flew out to New York’s Pace University campus, and joined my old friend for an hour long chat about me and my life--an honor he typically reserves only for the finest actors in the business.
Just like the celebrities James interviews, the first forty-five minutes of my interview were a yawn-inducing trip down memory lane. But, as expected, things got interesting when we dove into the ten questions that have made him an interviewing legend.
Here’s how it went down:
James: What is your favorite word?
James: What is your least favorite word?
Bethany: *cringes* There are several, but since most are body parts (and this is a PG-rated blog) I’ll just include this one: MOIST.
James: What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
Bethany: Confidence. Whether in one’s work, faith, relationships, abilities…there’s nothing more inspiring (or hawt!) than confidence.
James: What turns you off?
James: What is your favorite curse word?
Bethany: All of them. Independent from each other or all mashed up. It’s all good--so long as my kids don’t hear.
James: What sound or noise do you love?
Bethany: The sound of my hair dryer at work. My brain hamster is easily motivated by all of that white noise. My best plotting takes place beneath the 1875 watts of my ceramic Revlon Ionic Pro.
James: What sound or noise do you hate?
Bethany: Babies crying
James: What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Bethany: I’d love to be a singer, though doubt my audience would appreciate it.
JAMES: What profession would you not like to do?
Bethany: Anything that has to do with math or exact measurements. Or something that requires the use of a plunger.
James: If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
Bethany: You did good, kid.
