For some reason the final credit list is full of incorrect roles, even when I recently updated with the correct ones, including linking the CV of several actors where their roles are clearly stated. My submission was declined.

Here they are:

Oliver Devoti is credited as 'Lannister Soldier' when the correct credit is 'Northerner in Alley'

Derek Dubery is incorrectly credited as 'King's Landing Citizen'. The correct credit is 'King's Landing Father'

Louis McCartney is incorrectly credited as 'King's Landing Citizen'. The correct credit is 'Flea Bottom Teen' (click on Biography)

Adam Deveroux is incorrectly credited as 'Lannister Solider'. The correct credit is 'Scorpion Gunner'

Ryan McKen is incorrectly credited as 'Lannister Soldier'. The correct credit is 'Unsullied'

( Very mild SPOILERS of GoT S8/ep.5 follows)

IMDb uses the character names as they’re written in the actual credits. Easiest way to provide proof is to take screenshots of the actual credits. Actor PR pages and resumes are not really needed (they could help if we’re talking about ”uncredited” roles, though, since ”Scorpion Gunner” is more informative than just ”Lannister Soldier”).

Problem is that Game of Thrones doesn't list roles, only actors. Going back through earlier episodes there's several actors listed without any roles (on IMDb), because they simply don't have them on their CV or they're not part of an agency (ie featured extras). It's a bit frustrating, because most other HBO shows list both actor and role, while GoT only list the actor.

Here's an example.

Thanks, I didn’t actually know that, even when I’m a fan of the series. In that case I support your efforts and perhaps IMDb will re-consider when the staff reads this thread.

Like I said, ”Scorpion Gunner” is more informative than just ”Lannister Soldier”.
