Does this mean "I don't know the actor personally" or "I don't know of the actor" or both?

It can be both! "Kennen" can either mean "to be acquainted with" or "to be familiar with", "to know of".

Wow! This really shows the difference between fast and slow speech. I could have sworn it was auteur in the fast version.
