Iris Rhame on Inside the Characters' Studio

This week on Inside the Characters' Studio--Iris Rhame, the star of Saundra Mitchell's Shadowed Summer.

What is your favorite word?

What is your least favorite word?

What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
Pretty sure I ain't allowed to be turned on. But I like wondering about things. How they got the way they are. Seeing if there's magic in 'em. Oh, and looking at the stars. I like that, too.

What turns you off?
No air conditioning.

What is your favorite curse word?
I guess you're trying to get me grounded.

What sound or noise do you love?
When it's real soft, I love listening to the river go by. Sometimes I think I can roll on with it, right out to the sea.

What sound or noise do you hate?
When wind gets up and cries in the trees? I don't like that. It crawls my back and makes me feel haunted.

What profession would you like to attempt?
Maybe I'd like doing something with books, like maybe collecting 'em, or fixing 'em or something like that. Keeping old stories alive.

What profession would you not like to do?
I watch Dirty Jobs with Ben sometimes, and I gotta tell you. There's about a thousand I don't wanna do.

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
It's all right.
