Hi there are two actors called Susan Davis. In the AR action you can see them as number 181 and 182 giving a total of 200 actors. In the queryBuilder and sql actions both actors are combined because of the renderRows function and there is a total of 199 actors. Also my execution times were about 1.4 seconds vs 2 seconds. (queryBuilder/sql vs AR) In the cookbook there is a difference of 3x.
