Hello! I've submitted credit for Leila Jean Davis who played a 'Key Witness' in the true crime series "On the Case with Paula Zahn; Smoke & Ashes - 2013" Her credit appeared on the episode, but is listed as under "Self" instead of "Acting/Cast"

Leila is only 11 yrs. old. The crime occurred in the 1980s - before she was even born. She played the key witness role really well, but was not one in real life.

How do I change this listing? Please let me know what steps to take to have her credit be listed in her "Acting/Cast" section. Thanks so much!

Leila is at - look at bottom of page at "Self" section.

I'm looking forward to your suggestions on how to fix this credit. Thanks!

Since the TV series is listed as 'Documentary', the cast credits are automatically sorted under 'Self'. However, if a documentary programme includes reenactments the sorting can be undone by adding the keyword 'reenactment' to the series.

I will do this for you, so the listing should change within a few days.

Hi Peter, THANK YOU So Much!

You are totally correct in that this TV show is based on real crimes that happened years ago, and that many of the scenes are reenactments to round out the archive footage and photos of the crime.

The show airs on the Investigative Discovery Channel. Its a pretty cool show to watch. The camera work is great and the host Paula Zahn does a great job in narrating the events that occurred.

I really appreciate your help in updating the credits for Leila. Thanks again!
