On the role of acting skills for the collection of simulated emotional speech

Emiel Krahmer, Marc Swerts

We experimentally compared non-simulated with simulated expressions of emotion produced both by inexperienced and by experienced actors. Contrary to our expectations, in a perception experiment participants rated the expressions of experienced actors as more extreme and less like non-simulated ("real") expressions than those produced by non-professional actors.
