Were any Beatles songs inspired by their trip to Greece?

Girl!

And I'm Irish too, if any of you knew my last name it'd be obvious!

Is anyone here not (at least) partially Irish?

We breed like bloody rabbits, I guess its all because of our sexy accent a-hard-days-night-george-10

I made myself pass out today :P I was doing a monologue where the character is slowly descending into madness, I felt pressure at the top of my head and the next thing I woke up on the floor with my head spinning. 

First time that's ever happened was quite weird a-hard-days-night-paul-4

The question is: did that help the performance?

I'm half Irish, and my family has a huge St. Patrick's Day party every year with lots of Irish music and whatnot (and later on, a lot of rock as well)

On my dad's side I'm Scots Irish. So, my family was from mmm's stomping grounds, but lived for a while amongst ASJ's folks before hightailing it across the Atlantic.

I'm a result of the Great American Melting Pot. On mom's side I'm pure English. Guess I can't take a position on the Scottish Independence question.

I'm writing a song. It's a rock'n'roll one, Chuck Berry-style. It's about glasses.

I'm actually quite impressed with it, too. The subject matter is odd, but very, very painful. I can't really write happy songs about things that make me happy, but it's good to have an upbeat chord progression. I've written the first verse and I'm currently writing the solo. Hopefully I'll be able to show it to you when I get my guitar - it's got both that and piano in it.

Again, the only problem is that it's constantly leading me on a depressing train of thought that I can never escape. Help.

I'm just plain old Dutch. My grandma's great grandmother or something like that was spanish though. 

Today I went to a monastery, which was open for public. You could just walk around in the building and talk to nuns and all. It was very interesting and educative. The oldest nun was 80 and the youngest 33. We spoke with both of them. I was surprised to see a 33 year old. She had been there for 10 years already and didn't really miss her old life. She can go visit her family twice a year and said it was very hard to say goodbye when returning to the monastery. I can see that. Her family can come more often to visit her though. What also surprised me was to see a television in the recreation room. I asked what they watched when watching tv. They just watch the news and whatever is important for them. They never watch any movies or Eurovision. I was also surprised to hear that she has a mobile phone and a laptop. She only uses her phone to call her parents and text them and she only uses her laptop for school (she's following a theology course). Then there was a short film about how they spend their days. It was very interesting.

I made myself pass out today :P I was doing a monologue where the character is slowly descending into madness, I felt pressure at the top of my head and the next thing I woke up on the floor with my head spinning. 

First time that's ever happened was quite weird a-hard-days-night-paul-4

Do you act a lot?

It's my part-time career :P I've been acting since I was 4 and did my first couple of years with a teacher from The Royal Irish Academy of Music and Drama. When I was 7ish I did my first ever paid job with a touring company around the west of Ireland which was great fun. From then on I've been doing paid work and unpaid work (mostly the latter rather than the former :( ). Nothing I've done though was "big" though just little companies who did theatre for the love of it. I've done everything from Shakespeare to musicals to short films to extra work to dubbing (I could have been in 'Vikings' but I had no way of getting to Dublin which to say the least slightly irritated me and I'm definitely going to apply for Game of Thrones the second I turn 18 :P). 

For the future, I'm not certain if I'll audition for RADA next January or not, if I could somehow make a decent living off of acting I would do it in a heartbeat. Acting is a passion of mine as I always used to think of myself as a bit "weird" until I joined a youth drama group when I was 12 who were just as mental as I am. Being different characters is a form of escapism for me, I get to be someone else, whether it be a plague victim, a cat, a simpleton or a prostitute (yes I have done all of them, don't ask about the last one a-hard-days-night-paul-3). I'd say I've done around 150 different acting jobs (whether that's promotional stuff, plays, poetry recitals, short-films, extra work blah blah) over my 12 years as an actor, about 30 of them being paid work (and the pay is awful- bloody minimum wage for an under 18 year old a-hard-days-night-paul-11).  I'm at the awkward stage in that I'm 16 but a lot of people who are over 18 look like they could play a 16 year old so they take the jobs I could get (it's easier to employ someone who is over 18). 

I try and do a monologue/recite a poem at least once a week to keep me in tune (I don't really plan to work for the next year and a half and when I get into college maybe try and do something with The Druid Theatre which would be amazing!). 

And that's my whole acting life condensed into a few badly-written paragraphs which are littered with smileys, feel free to ask questions :P

Oh and when I fainted, it was just in my bedroom nobody actually saw it (darn)

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I can totally relate to that since I am going to go into acting as a job though I haven't been acting as long as you. How is camera acting different than theater acting for you?

A lot of the teenagers and people in their 20s who I worked with went on to do film studies in college (which also answers Ron Nasty's question about how the hell did I know about the French film 'Baise-Moi' :P). They are always making short-films and I generally help them in whatever way I can.

Stage acting is very expressive, you have to be over-dramatic with your actions so the people right at the back can see you, you also have to speak louder for the same reason (the majority of professional shows with the exception of massive West-End and Broadways do not use microphones). Whereas working up close with a camera you keep your general actions to a minimum and you don't need to speak as loud (obviously). 

A friend of mine described it the best "When you're acting on stage you use your body, when you're acting for a film you use your eyes". You focus less on showing your emotions and more on having them, film allows you more to connect with your character than stage, I think.

I do prefer stage acting overall though, doing one scene from the beginning and one scene from the end of the film, really messes with your acting unless you're a strong actor.

Worse is that some people are going to watch that guff. People who are need to put the remote control down, pick up the tv, lob it out of the window and go sit in a cupboard.
