Update People picker field (multi selection)

I want to update a multi-selection people picker field with the results of a different sharepoint list

 

SharePoint List  A - Includes a list of people with a MasterID column as the foreign key.

SharePoint List B - includes a people picker field i want to update with all the "actors"/people from SP List A

 

SharePoint List A [MasterID] = SharePoint List B [ID]

 

I figured i could create an array variable and collect all the people's claims then use the variable in SP List B. However, this approach would not work. Any ideas on how I can collect people from one list and update the field from a different list?

hi @lui  actors needs to be an array or a json object? 

 

Because if is json you just have to add it like 

 

{

"Autor": "Christian"

}

 

this is a json format.

Not sure, it's a people field picker with multiple selections. 

Do I have to create the json output? How do i collect the people from other list
