mat-autocomplete with filter and selected items in mat-table not working


I am new to angular and angular material. I’m using a tutorial to do a small project where I have an angular material autocomplete to filter actors and when I click on one of them, it should be displayed in a mat-table with drag drop feature. I am not using any database for this feature of actors-autocomplete but using the hard coded actors in the code. But the actors in the autocomplete are not added to the mat-table after I select on it and click on it. But in the browser console, a row is added after I select an actor from the autocomplete. What am I missing here. Entire github code in stackblitz is available in the link below.

create-movie.component.html

        <h2>Create Movie</h2>

    <h4>Select the Actors</h4>
    <app-actors-autocomplete></app-actors-autocomplete>

      import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
  import { multipleSelectorModel } from '../../utilities/multiple-selector/multiple-selector.model';
  import { MoviesService } from '../movies.service';
  import { movieCreationDTO } from '../movies.model';
  import { map } from 'rxjs/operators';

  @Component({
    selector: 'app-create-movie',
    templateUrl: './create-movie.component.html',
    styleUrls: ['./create-movie.component.css'],
  })
  export class CreateMovieComponent implements OnInit {
    constructor() {}

   
    ngOnInit(): void {}

    saveChanges(event: Event): void {}
  }
