In Hardhat case , u first need to get your hardhat blockchain simulated accounts using ethers.getSigners() function. Please know it returns an array with Signer Objects. When you have the accounts u can use the contract.connect method to connect your contract with the desired Signer Account u got from getSigners() function.

https://hardhat.org/hardhat-runner/plugins/nomiclabs-hardhat-ethers https://docs.ethers.io/v5/api/contract/contract/

let [account1,account2,account3] = await ethers.getSigners();
await contract.connect(account2).method();

ether.js allows to do this in this way:


Also I saw an option to create a separate contract which would act as Actor to verify test cases.
