Where actors are coming from

Reading on the skills a film director has, the following sentence turns up:

"He (the helmer) gets where actors are coming from".

Obviously, it is not talking about the place they are born or the one they left to be here. It seems the sentence tells about the skill of the filmmaker to penetrate into the mind of them and knows what's going on in there.

Can be understood as it, or am I wrong and there are other possibilities?

Thanks a lot :)
