Is it possible to make a list of the season and episode numbers that actress/actor has been in - if a TV series, without visiting each episode to get the data from the site?

I'm not quite sure what you're asking. Is it about viewing IMDb's data or about adding new credits?

For an actor/actress I'd like to just view the season and episode numbers that they appeared in - to not have to open each of the episodes to get that particular data.

Unfortunately, no.

When IMDb implemented Full Episode Support, I strongly requested that they add the Episode Number to the title in the Filmography. I even noted that if they replaced the (TV Episode) (which still shows up in the Filmography by Type), they could add the data with no increase in the data length (e.g. (Ep. 10.15)) with very few exceptions.

Putting it there gives significant information : when was there a Season break? are the 4 items listed for this person widely spaced, or a possible arc?

However, IMDb, in its infinite wisdom, apparently decided the idea had no merit.

It'd be worth posting as a suggestion now though, that way staff will be able to see if it has enough popular support to warrant the time needed to implement it, I'd +1 it.

That's an idea, Emperor, though I am not very sanguine about the chances. However, it is worth a try so I have posted the suggestion

There's the series "episode cast" page, which lists the full cast for every episode on one page. For example: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0094535/e...

Of course that's not specific to a single person, but it is all on one page.
