    hise debut as something VS. his something debut

    She made her New York debut.
    That is one particular debut, not her only debut. Not her first ever appearance, just the first time she appeared in New York.

    She made her debut in New York.
    She made her only debut, her first ever performance. It happened in New York.

    would you please show me if the following mean the same thing? I have already collected some explanation above.

    He started as an actor, making his debut as an actor in 1990.



    He started as an actor, making his acting debut in 1990.

    Thanks

    Re: hise debut as something VS. his something debut

    She made her acting debut.
    This means it's the first time she acted publicly. It doesn't matter where it was.

    She made her New York [acting] debut.
    This means it's the first time she acted publicly in New York. We don't know if it's the first time she acted publicly.

    In your second section, "making his debut as an actor in 1990" and "making his acting debut in 1990" mean the same thing.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
