Is it possible to track actors? It would be great to get an email whenever a favorite actor appears in a new movie or play.

Hi Quinn,

We do not currently have a notifications feature for filmography credits. I've changed the conversation type of this thread to "Idea". Our team routinely review the "Idea" threads when considering site enhancements.

Hi Quinn Delaney,

As Trevor (IMDb Official Representative) states above, IMDb does not currently provide notification for filmography credits. Other users have made similar requests.

You may wish to up vote (like) this idea.
Is it possible to receive email when an actor/actresses section is changed?

The IMDb technical staff is more likely to implement an idea if it is popular and generally useful. They have to weigh this against the amount of resources it would take to implement and support new functionality.

In the specific case for this feature, the technical staff also has to consider the impact on people using this feature if it were to be implemented. Notifying users of minor changes to the filmography could lead to a storm of emails that would be at best irritating. Notifying users of when credits are added or removed may not be sufficient.

Note: I am a long time user of IMDb, not a staff member.
