Er, I've had some acting classes and I'm a history major (so I could probably hunt up a fact or two about actors in the Middle Ages), which might do if she can't find a real actor and is in a real pinch. Email me off-list if that's the case!

Emily (12) has to interview an actor for a school project. It is a short
interview and seems to me could just as well be done by email (tracking down an
actor if you don't already know any seems a bit difficult -- is my daughter
supposed to act like a stage-door johnny? or ask random waiters if they happen to
act a bit? we were discussing the matter at about eight-thirty on Sunday
morning, and my husband said authoritatively, "They'll all be asleep," as if he
were talking about raccoons).
They are doing a unit on the middle ages, which involves a complicated game
where you rise from the status of generic Peasant to become an Apprentice and
then a Journeyman. (Shades of _Tough Guide_ here!) She is going for
Journeyman status and one of the tasks is
"Interview a guild member (a person who practices the craft today) and
report to the court:
a. -what was your guild like in the Middle Ages,
b. -what is your guild/craft like today,
c. -plus one question of your choosing."
I am afraid most of the people interviewed will just say "No clue" to
question A! I don't know what the student is supposed to do if that happens.
