Since the role is "uncredited' and the actress with the credit is the only Hannah Reed that has an on file photo, the only way you can prove its you is to provide a screenshot of the movie with you in it, and upload a photo to your official IMDb actors 'nm' Name page for comparison.

OK, thanks. This actress would have been 11yo when this was shot, and the role was for a college student, so that seems like it should be a good enough indication, but I will use your suggestion. Much appreciated!

Since the credited/uncredited character role does not describe "what" age a person is how would staff know this? Besides how old was Doogie Howser? Don't forget "College Age" is a fluctuating thing! You can be as young as 10-11 or 90.....

Hello Hannah,

Please post the 18-digit reference number of the submission so an IMDb representative can review the update and respond.

As you mentioned, her birth year and the title's release year does indicate she would've been 11. In my opinion, this is good enough reason for the update to be approved. 

Was your update submitted to move the credit to a new name page or to a page already listed in the IMDb?

Thanks for the report. I'm looking forward to your response.

Blu-ray + DVD combo seems to be quite cheap in Amazon:

It also seems to be in iTunes.

Upload a picture of yourself to IMDb on your name page as I suggested. Take a screenshot of yourself and resubmit.

It will probably get rejected the third time. Start a new post. Post the screengrab. Along with your picture on your name page, that will be enough to have the credit switched and applied to you.

Cheers
Ed

When you provide the 18 digit number referenced by GMJ that would be needed with your proof.
Niether GMJ nor I are IMDb employees.
GMJ's opinion.....

In my opinion, this is good enough reason for the update to be approved. 

Is just that. An opinion. My replies are just that also.
Do not take any one of our replies as fact at this time, as I do not agree with GMJ's assumption of what staff will do.

Please wait for an IMDb Representatives reply on this issue.

Thanks
Ed

Hannah is probably trying to tell that a 11-year-old actress could not play the part of a college/art student. Let’s not make this overly difficult.

Lets not overlook facts. An 11 year old can look 18-25. Remember Brooke Shields!
Waiting for an Employee was suggested
It is best.
Thanks for your comment E-boy
Cheers

Hi Hannah -

This is confirmation that the credit has now been moved to your filmography page and the change should be live on the site shortly.  Cheers!
