In case you’ve been wondering about me …

Who can honestly say you’re not even a little bit curious about what makes some of your favourite actors tick?  Come on, not even a little bit?  Well I Spotlight2am.  That’s one of the reasons why I’ve always enjoyed the one-hour talk show, Inside The Actors’ Studio.
