The "-inne" forms sound rather dated to me. I'd say "Hun er skuespiller".

EDIT: I wouldn't be shocked to hear someone say "skuespillerinne", either, but I absolutely think "actress" should be an accepted translation here.

IMO, to extend the same gender-free courtesy to women as to men, one refers to a female actor as an actor. Either way, this sentence translates to actor.

[skuespileren] or [skuespilern]? There is a difference in pronunciation of this word in the whole sentence (1st option) and as a single word (2nd option) :)

Yes, words do tend to sound a little different when we say them quickly in a sentence compared to slowly and separately. Some sounds are swallowed and others flow together. The same thing happens in English.

You can't say 'actor name' in English, it needs to be 'actor's name'

That's not grammatical in English; it should be 'What is the actress called?'
