actor

Here is my best explanation:

'performer' is the definition.
(actor is a kind of performer)

'gold by a court' is the subsidiary indication.
'gold' becomes 'or'.
'by' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'court' becomes 'ct'.
'a'+'ct'='act'
'or' put after 'act' is 'actor'.

'given' is the link.
