What does it mean when you dream about an actor?

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.

actor

(1) A primitive in a concurrent programming model. See actor model.

(2) (ACTOR) An earlier Windows object-oriented programming language for PCs developed by The Whitewater Group Inc., Evanston, IL.

Actor

(dreams)
Sometimes dreaming about a famous actor or actress may be a wish-fulfilling dream, or it could hold important messages about ourselves. We admire celebrities and may wish to have some of their characteristics. Consider the personality traits or any other trait that attracts you to that person. This will help you figure out why you are dreaming about him or her. If you are dreaming that someone is acting, you may be dreaming about yourself. The dream could be pointing out some of the roles that you play in life. Among the many roles we play are parent, spouse, lover, student, professional, etc. We behave somewhat differently in each of those roles. The actor in your dreams could be showing you how well you “play” some of your roles in life or how others perceive you.
