Is there a difference between a pneumatic actuator vs a pneumatic cylinder?

I’ve been looking to buy actuators for some project I have and finally choose pneumatic (over hydraulic and electric). The problem is that I don’t understand whats the difference between a pneumatic actuator and a simple pneumatic cylinder. Are they the same thing? If not, how do they differ?
