Karol, who remained an actor

On Monday 6 April 2015 the tv channel TVP 1 showed "Kuchnia papieska" (The Papal kitchen), in which several Polish actors talked about food and the Polish pope John Paul II. In his youth Karol Wojtyła (the future JPII) was interested in theater, participated in activities of a theatrical group and hoped to be an actor. However he later decided to go to a religious seminary instead.

Did actors participating in the tv show play their real selves?
Or did they play actors discussing the food and the pope?
Or did they play actors talking about an actor who became pope?
Or did they talk about pope who remained an actor?
