Which expressions are commonly used.
Can we use 'actor' for a woman?

asked by rfvv
  1. Yes. Actor applies to both men and women. Increasingly it is thought that men and women do not need to be separated by gender. An actor is an actor, like a doctor is a doctor, a truck driver is a truck driver, a teacher is a teacher, etc.
