Welcome to health care magic.

1.The report suggest there is scoliotic deformity - that means there is tilt to one side.
2.There is pathology noted at level of two vertebrae - this kind of changes are seen due to infective aetiology in your age group -probably tuberculosis comes in first place followed by other bacterial.
3.There are some rib changes in the 8th - which could be old healed fracture or due to the vertebral changes.
4.Which might be causing pressure effect on the lung - so, it can be moved as your actor said.
5.I would recommend to get a CT scan done for better evaluation of the cause and treated accordingly.
6.As only on x-ray findings is not enough to find the cause, further blood and sputum test suggested. good luck.

Hope i have answered your query.
