The term 'over acted' refers to a performance that is exaggerated or excessive. Some antonyms for this word could be 'understated,' 'natural,' 'subtle,' or 'authentic.' When a performer portrays a character with sincerity and avoids going over the top, their performance can be described as subtle or authentic. On the other hand, if the performer appears restrained or fails to animate a character's emotions, the performance can be called understated. In contrast to an overacted portrayal, these antonyms suggest a more nuanced and genuine depiction of a character that is both believable and engaging to the audience.
