Hi Karol Steele,

Considering that Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) is extremely popular, IMDb is likely to receive a large number of updates for this film in the next few weeks. As a result, it may take some time for the IMDb content editors to review your evidence.

The image your provide no longer appears on the Ana-Maria Leonte Photo Gallery. It is likely that someone loaded the image from a copyrighted book without permission. The image only identifies and describes the character, Dasha Promenti, it does not mention that Ana-Maria Leonte played Dasha Promenti.

If you have access to the book, Star Wars: The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary, it would be helpful if you can provide the page number on which the image of Ana-Maria Leonte as Dasha Promenti appears.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary is a visual dictionary reference title for the film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens by DK Publishing. Written by Pablo Hidalgo, the book was released on December 18, 2015, the same day as the film itself. The book is 96 pages in length.

Publisher's summary

Beautiful photography and clear, authoritative text by Lucasfilm insider Pablo Hidalgo names and explains all the details of costumes, weapons, and accessories.

Hi Dan,

Thank you very much for your detailed response. 

Please note that Dasha Promenti appears on page 15 of the Visual Dictionary and her name is also mentioned in the Index of the book. 

Please let me know if you need further information about this.

Kind regards,
Ana-Maria

Hi Ana-Maria,

I am a long time user of IMDb, not a staff member.

I'm assuming that you are Ana-Maria Leonte. If not, please forgiven my presumption.

What the data editors need most is evidence to tie the character Dasha Promenti to Ana-Maria Leonte. Does the book, Star Wars: The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary state that Ana-Maria Leonte plays Dasha Promenti?

Do you (Ana-Maria Leonte) have call sheets from the filming of The Force Awakens, that associates your name with Dasha Promenti.

If you have copies or can obtain copies of the call sheets from the producers of The Force Awakens, I recommend that you scan them and provide an image file to IMDb after consulting your agent or Disney.

Since Disney and Lucas Productions probably do not want copies of the call sheets publicly available, you may wish use a private file sharing service such as drop box (https://www.dropbox.com/) to share the call sheet image with IMDb.

Hi Dan,

Your assumption is correct and thank you  for your kind advice. 

Regarding my name being mentioned in the Album - none of the actors that portray the characters is mentioned - only the characters. 

Many thanks,
Ana-Maria

Hi Ana-Maria -

You mentioned that your role on "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is "uncredited", if that is correct, unfortunately, your credit is not yet eligible for listing.

A cast member needs to have at least one credited entry in the database before we will list their uncredited work. If we have accepted uncredited entries, these will automatically go live upon acceptance of credited entries. Since you do not yet have any credited entries, you will need to wait for one to be listed before your uncredited work can be displayed on the site.

The way to submit requests regarding data on pages, in general, is to click the "edit page" button at the bottom of the page and fill in the forms.  It can be difficult to get outright deletions without excellent explanation and proof such as screen captures of credits, etc.

If you provide details, more specific instruction can be given.

If this is unrelated to the topic of this thread, you might want to post with details in a new thread instead of attaching it here.
