Some actors have a section where it shows posters from the shows they've been in. Some actors don't have that at all. Why is that?

The 'Known For' feature is displayed on pages that meet our specific criteria based on their filmography.

To have a 'Known For' section featured on a page, a person needs to have a minimum number of different eligible titles in his or her filmography (currently at least 5) and at least 2 of those titles need to have a poster/cover image associated with them.

If a person does not yet have a 'Known For'" section listed, this means that their filmography does not currently meet the criteria.

Thank you! But, so I'm clear on this, I've seen some actors who meet that criteria, and still don't have a "known for" section. Do they have to be films? Or do you include TV shows which also have posters?

There are several requirements that are factored when deciphering if a name page should have a "Known For" section or not.

For additional information on these requirements and other questions related to our "Known For" feature, please be sure to visit our FAQ's page on this topic here:
