    in character

    What does "in character" mean in the following?

    In reviewing a number of David Letterman's interviews, I listened for questions ..... And then Maryann singled out an interview that Letterman did with Sasha Baron Cohen in character. He came on the Late Show in 2006 as Borat, the titular character from his movie Borat: Clutural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. Perhaps not surprisingly, when Letterman shifted into the persona of someone interviewing a "head of state," between laughter and wincing, he took a different approach to questioning.

    And does "He" refer to Letterman?

    Thank you.

    Cohen appeared on Letterman's show as Borat, the character he (Cohen) had played in the movie.
