"You act quickly."

Translation:Vi agas rapide.

Does "agi" then mean "act" in the sense of "to take action" and not "to take on a character?"

Looking it up, "agi" is "to take action." Act in the other sense is "aktori". Although it also seems as if "agi" can take on some of the meaning of "konduti" though I am not sure how much.

What you looked up is correct; agi is "to take action", and aktori is "to act" in the theatrical sense. These two are important to keep separate.

In English, we use "act" a lot to mean "behave", too. But I'd say that anywhere you could use "behave" instead of "act", konduti is the better choice in Esperanto.
