What does it mean when you dream about an actor?
In Jungian psychology, the persona—the side of ourselves that we present to the world—is portrayed as an actor. Unless we are somehow involved in actual acting or have unrealized ambitions to act, dreams in which we or others appear as actors tend to refer to the persona. As with other symbols, much depends on the overall tone of the dream. When they are unpleasant, acting dreams frequently refer to situations in which we feel forced to “put on an act” or situations in which we feel ourselves acting out the expectations of others.
