Voice acting, and acting - two characters in the production

I have a feeling that there must a thread (or several) about this issue somewhere, but anyway...

How to add an (actor) credit, when the same actor is doing the voice acting, AND also appears in one of the (normal) characters in the same program? This means two different characters (one for voice, and one for normal acting), not some motion capture work or similar. This is an older production anyway, no CGI, effects or nothing like that.

Thanks.

I think you should not use the voice attribute if the actor has an on-screen appearance.

I think it will be easier for others to advise on character names if you say what the characters were and how they were credited.

Eboy,
I once submitted a trivia item for a movie with Tommy Lee Jones and Gene Hackman.
They were coming up a set of stairs to an elevated train. T.L. Jones was on the P.A. announcing the trains arrival at the same time he was talking to Hackman.

Hi Eboy,

Peter is correct, in these cases please list these credits without an attribute as the individual is seen on screen. Please list the individual characters with a "/" between them and if using order numbers please use the first order number and leave a corresponding gap in the sequence for the place where they are credited again.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Will

Interesting. That's what I would.

Again, this is a rather tricky - and not-so-common case, since this actor is credited for the ”voice” work (voicing the puppet character), but goes ”uncredited” for the work as an ”actor” in the same program.

So the attribute ”(uncredited)” is also problematic.
