California Employment Law

I came across the wage order but was a little bit confused by it. On its surface it appears that it just reiterates the FLSA requirements for exemptions. Are there further specific exemptions within it that I am missing?
So if the employee is a "professional actor" that fits the requirements of a creative professional, does that mean that they are exempt under the FLSA or the CA Wage Order?
Secondly, would the FLSA or the CA Wage Order be the controlling authority?
Ok so just recapping,
An "actor" who works on a day to day basis or is paid hourly would still be required to be paid OT for an hours past the requirement. But if it they are professional in the sense that they could be covered as a creative professional and are paid a salary then they would be exempt?
Also, if paying them one flat fee regardless of how many hours they work would this put them in the "salaried" category if it was above the required amount?
