I've added this actress 'Marijn Frank' as an actress a lot of times to the series Keuringsdienst van Waarde in which she features.
I've checked her profile but couldn't find a single episode in which she's added as actor.
I've tried to change her gender to female 190117-193215-580000 ,also without results.
Can you guys please shed some light on this problem?

Because the problem is, when I add her to something new, the default attached to her name is always 'actor'.
Best regards.

Hi M J -

I just reviewed the name page listing for "Marijn Frank", and can see that the gender update has been approved as she is now listed on the site as a female/actress:

Asia Kate Dillion is an award-winning nonbinary actor who is listed as “actress” on imdb.
I would prefer imdb remove all gender markers and refer to all actors as “actor,”

Currently the way our system is designed,
we have to select a gender
(at present there is only the "male" and female" options and actor/actress)...

= = =
Non-binary actors on IMDB
I think IMDB should honour non-binary acting people
with a relevant tag instead of actor/actress.
As an example please see the profile of Asia Kate Dillon tagged as "actress"
while they are identifying as non-binary....
