I have a problem with finding correct verb. for example when you read about a writer for first time, or when you watch a movie and see an actor for first time, which verb we should to use in this sentence? I just knew him? or, I just see him?
notice that I want to say I just knew that this person is exist!

  • "I first saw Russell Crowe in Gladiator." or "saw him for the first time". With a writer it would have to be discovered or first heard of. – Kate Bunting May 22 '20 at 11:32

“I know that actor”

“That actor looks familiar”

“I recognize that actor”

“I’m familiar with that actor”

“I know who that is”
