The actor model is an approach to concurrency based on having small single-threaded objects (actors), that can only interact via concurrent messages (as opposed to shared state, locks, condition variables, etc). This isolation not only makes it easier to reason about the actors, but allows for different actors to be distributed across different machines without any significant change in architecture. It’s no coincidence that Erlang, a language with a reputation for reliability and scalability, is based on the actor model.
