Actors could be more real than real people

  • Comment

Louis Hellman suggests that actors could be used to help student architects in simulated real-life encounters (AJ 6.9.01).

This is not such a fanciful idea. In my firm we have used actors for several years to assist our trainee solicitors in developing their interviewing skills. The trainees say they have found this quite useful, although they said the actors had given them a hard time, and some of them had obviously had difficulties with the 'client' who burst into tears, particularly if they had not brought a clean handkerchief with them!
