Reply to "as ... as"

Sir, actually I am not sure about the meaning of  (Just) As he is a good actor, so he is a good singer.

The sentence above means: He is both a good actor and a good singer or He is a good actor as well as a good singer.

In line with what David explained to you, (just) as and so are not intensifiers comparing the quality of his acting and his singing but function as correlative conjunctions coordinating the clauses he is a good actor and he is a good singer.
