How to replace SharePoint string data in Power Automate

Please forgive me if I am overlooking anything but I am learning this specific process for the first time, and I don't know if this is more of a Power Automate question or SharePoint question.

From within my SharePoint list, I can create a new column and make it a "Single line of text", and add the value  "Chris Tower".

When I am back in Power Automate, and I am using the Start and Wait for Approval action, and I am working with the Assign to: field, I want it to populate with because the dynamic value from the SharePoint list was chosen to be Christ Tower.  What is the closest way for me to achieve my goal?

Many Thanks!

1. Get the item from the sharepoint list

2. Search for the user and retrieve email address
3. Apply to each user retrieved
4. Use user's email as the input for Assigned to, and Get item link as Item Link
