I played Bob Sales in a BBC1 Drama-Documentary called 'D-Day: The Last Heroes'. It is driving me mad that my credit is listed as a 'Self'. When it should be an actors credit, I've tried a million times to change it and have contacted IMDB as much as possible and it appears that they are simply refusing to change it. They change other things for me very quickly but they will not change this very simple, very obvious credit.. What shall I do??

Hi Liam -

Your credit is listed under the "Self" section because this TV Series is a Documentary.

If the title includes reenactments, adding the "reenactment" keyword will move any credits that include a character name not beginning with "Himself" or "Herself" out of the "self" area. If this applies, be sure you have a character name specified, and add the keyword "reenactment" (without the quotes).

So since you are listed with a character name, adding the 'reenactment' keyword will adjust your credits accordingly.

Michelle,
I did the update on this earlier - I just posted it on the other of the 2 threads Liam started on this issue.
