Splitting actor credits between two people

There's a thread on www.britmovie.co.uk where someone has discovered an actor who seems to have credits for two different actors with the same name. Let's call the existing one Actor 1 and the one that needs to be created and populated with credits Actor 2. Once an entry has been created for Actor 2 (by manually adding one credit for him and letting that get published) is there an easy way to transfer some of the actor credits to him? Or is it a case of visiting the title page for each title which is credited to Actor 1 but should be credited to Actor 2? Is there a way of generating a list of credits for Actor 1, editing out the entries that belong to him, and then submitting it as a single list for Actor 2?

Not sure how many credits are under the wrong name, but you can correct each credit individually by visiting the title page. Then you edit/correct ”Actor 1” to ”Actor 2” (the latter being the correct name). Remember to add explanation why you’re correcting the credit and perhaps some links/proof.
