It can be used to question whether someone is serious about something, as well.

Q: actually ve literally arasındaki fark nedir?
A: For example,
He's literally a genius.
He's actually a genius.

It's a little different.

You might use "He's actually a genius" when the person you are talking about just did something stupid and you're telling your friend that in reality he's, in fact, really intelligent.

You might use "He's literally a genius" if the person did something incredibly difficult and complicated and you're commenting on the actions by saying that he is really smart, even though you might be exaggerating.

so, "actually" could mean "contrary to what just happened" and literally is an exaggerated way to point out something.

I hope this is a good explanation ! Sorry if it's really complicated.
