What do you call an actor's lines in a movie as a whole? Because a script involves more than lines (and for more than just one actor). I'm not sure whether 'role' and 'part' work.

You've actually used the word I would probably pick as a native speaker, and which seems to be common:

Has the actor learnt his lines yet?

Part would work more generally if you meant more than just the words they are to say.
