I have found several pages online that claim that Murray Blue is a pseudonym for Brianne Brozey. What is a good way to confirm or refute this claim?  If it is true, should their pages on IMDb be merged?

C: If the two people are the same, then their pages should definitely be merged.

But I don't know anything about either of these people, so I am not claiming they are the same. I don't know what kind of evidence would be sufficient to prove that they are the same.

They are voice actors. Brianne is much better known, and she does have several pseudonyms.  There is some overlap in their credits -- including at least one show where both names have been credited for the same character but in different episodes.  I am just curious if there is a good way to confirm or refute the claims that these are the same person.

Okay, after some more digging here's what I've found.  Is this enough for merging the pages?

* "Thunder and the House of Magic" - The characters of Thunder and Dylan are both voiced by Murray Blue.  Numerous websites say that these characters are voiced by Brianne Siddall/Brozey, and Murray Blue was her alias for it.  Perhaps one of the more noteworthy sites that mentions this is Behind the Voice Actors. They show that both of these characters are confirmed as being voiced by Brianne Siddall, and they show screen caps of the credits with the name "Murray Blue".  Here is a link: http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/movies/Thunder-and-the-House-of-Magic/side-by-side/

* "Rachel & the TreeSchoolers" - The character of Simon was voiced by Brianne Siddall in the first episode, and he was voiced by Murray Blue in all following episodes.  I have confirmed this myself by looking at the credits for each episode.  The main question here is the time that lapsed between the first episode and the rest of the series.  Brianne was in an accident around the time of the first episode, and she may or may not have been available afterwards to continue on this series by the time the following episodes were crowd-funded. If Murray Blue and Brianne Siddall/Brozey are different people but have similar voices, it is possible that there could be overlap in their credits.

There are two more credits for Murray Blue, but I have not spent much time digging into these.

Thoughts?

I did a bit of looking into Murray Blue's other credits, and quite a few sites state that these are also Brianne Siddall. At this point, I'm just not certain which of these sites are considered to be reliable enough sources for merging the pages.  Any input on this would be appreciated.

Thanks!

C: You will probably need to consult with people more familiar with voice actors to get a definitive answer.

Is there another board that you would recommend for this question?

Somehow this question got marked as "answered".  How do I change its status?

Hi C Park -

I see that the pages have since been combined on the site for Brianne Brozey/Murray Blue, see here.  So the evidence was enough for our staff to approve.  Cheers!
