We focus on affective architecture issues relating to the generation of expressive facial behaviour, critique approaches that treat expressive behaviour as only a mirror of internal state rather than as also a social signal and discuss the advantages of combining the two approaches. Using the FAtiMA architecture, we analyse the requirements for generating expressive behavior as social signals at both reactive and cognitive levels. We discuss how facial expressions can be generated in a dynamic fashion. We propose generic architectural mechanisms to meet these requirements based on an explicit mind-body loop and Theory of Mind (ToM) processing. A illustrative scenario is given.
