I'm wondering how I should answer this question when it comes up in my interview? I have a vague idea that I want to do transactional work due to my diverse background and the international aspect of transactional work. i also know that the kind of tranactional work I want to do is cross border M&A however I have no idea why I want to do M & A. In this case should I just answer transactional? or include the M&A aspect. (My interviewer is an M&A lawyer)

Explain. This makes no sense. You just said "I know I want to do M&A, but I have no idea why I want to do M&A."
Are you just attracted the fact that it has "cross border" in the title?
Also, there isn't really such a thing as a specific practice area called "cross border M&A." There is M&A work, and the attorneys in that group will usually do all the deals that the client does, including both purely domestic deals and those with a cross-border aspect.

I am disappoint. I was hoping this thread would allow me to express my interest in international human rights entertainment law.

What about cross-border M&A appeals to you? If you can tell your interview what this practice entails and why you those things appeal to you, that is a good answer. If it "just sounds cool," you might come across disingenuous. Screeners look out for people paying lipservice to certain practice areas looking for brownie points.

Pick corporate or lit (or IP). It's all fucking the same after that.
