Yes, you need.
IMHO, casting is not a good option to use in object-oriented programming.

In fact is the opposite:
TAction needs to have all methods that IAction have.
This TAction class in the example is not the same class in RTL.

You shouldn't have so many methods in just one class.
So, it is simple implement all methods of an interface.
