He got feedback from the directors, his fellow actors, the camera crew,
and so on. You might as well ask how a stage actor can get to be any
good given that he never sees himself acting.
My experience on the stage is that by the time you've learnt a part -
which is a lot more than just learning the lines - it's too late to
incorporate what little feedback you'll get from the audience during a
performance. Everything comes from seeing how the other people involved
in the rehearsals react.
