True, but after the fact everyone decided that Erlang was really doing Actors.
FWIW, here's an interesting session on that sort of thing:
Panel Discussion with Sir Tony Hoare, Joe Armstrong, and Carl Hewitt

When considering the panel to discuss concurrency, you’d be pushed to find a higher calibre than Sir Tony Hoare, Joe Armstrong, and Carl Hewitt. All greats within the industry and beyond, they give an amazing insight into the lifeline of concurrency and actor models over the past few decades, their bountiful experiences within the concurrency field, and where they see concurrency heading in the future.
