    walked and talked

    Hi,

    What does "walked and talked" mean in the following context? Does it simply mean it at its face value-talk and walk?


    Implausible? The folktale demands that we accept the power of the situation. In the presence of her oppressive stepmother, Cinderella was humble and unattractive. At the ball, Cinderella felt more beautiful—and walked and talked and smiled as if she were. In one situation, she cowered. In the other, she charmed.

    Thank you!

    P.S. I knew walk the walk, talk the talk.

    In that passage, "walk" and "talk" are meant literally.
