They're two completely different words. The sentence could use either, depending on what it is supposed to mean. >> "all actors, expecting Nahid, were unhappy " --> the actors were / had been waiting for Nahid to arrive and they were not happy, or disappointed. >>""all actors, except Nahid, were unhappy " --> Nahid was happy, everyone else was unhappy.

You would use 'except' for this. "In the text presented above in figure 4.4, all actors except Nahid, were unhappy."
