Correct a name

Salvation Season 2 has a staff writer who does not appear to have any pre-existing credits. His or her's name is KD Davila but the IMDb system won't allow the entry of the name KD so I entered it Kd. Can we get that fixed up?

well her real name is "K.D. Dávila" so you could add that and that credit her "as KD Davila"

Her homepage (I assume it’s her, not 100% sure), she’s listed as ”Kristen Dávila”. Vhavnal has a point about the ”primary name”, though.

Edit: She seems to be listed already:
https://m.imdb.com/name/nm4944814/

”Kristen "K.D." Dávila is a Mexican-American screenwriter from Los Angeles.”

Since this is her only credit, I would say go with the onscreen designation of KD Davila unless she speaks up and wants it to be something else.

She already seems to have a IMDb name page. Or are you saying that they are two different people?

I do not know if they are the same people. Sorry, when I saw this earlier, I didn't see the link for some reason. When I entered the name, it came up with no suggestions that I saw. She has no credits listed under KD Davila. It could be the same person but how would we determine that?

Her personal website doesn't mention that she is working on Salvation (and you would think it would. I know that Salvation is currently airing but here work on it would have been last year.)

I think unless we can confirm they are the same people, leave the listings the way they are. They can always be merged if we get confirmation.

I don’t have a horse in this race (so to speak), but the person on this Twitter page ( https://mobile.twitter.com/kristenona... ) looks very much like the person in these pages (there are others in google):


http://www.universaltalentdevelopment...

http://screenwriterscolony.org/portfo...


There’s also this (also included in her Twitter feed), which makes sense since she doesn’t have any previous TV credits):

https://www.instagram.com/p/BkedYDUAn...


In the same Twitter page there’s also some talk about ”Emergency, dir by Carey Williams” (which is listed in the ”other” IMDb name page). The initials ”KD” are also listed in the ”other” IMDb name page and in some other pages found from the web.


It also seems that she hadn’t really updated her blog since 2016 (Salvasion is from 2018).
