Good Afternoon,
In the page of the portuguese TV Series "Onde Está Elisa?" - www.imdb.com/title/tt6258778/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_1 - there is a mistake in the series cast. In fact, the actress that plays "Carla" is Beatriz Costa and not Laura Dutra. 
By the way, the imdb page of Beatriz Costa is www.imdb.com/name/nm2987489/
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Joana

Hello Joana,
The name of her character is given as "Carla (2017)", is there some sort of flashback involved?
There are quite a few others with character names like "... (2017)" or even just "(2017)".

A character name in that format makes it difficult to change in a 2018 series

Thanks

Hi Steve, 

First of all, thank you for the reply.
No, there's no flashback in the series. It is always the same actress playing Carla, in this case Beatriz Costa and not Laura Dutra, and the series is happening in the "present" all the time. 
The actress doesn't understand also why the name of the character comes with a "(2017).
Is it impossible to change the name of the actress because of that situation in the character name? 
Actually, the "2017" there, at this point, is quite irrelevant to us. We just need to change the actress's name, if possible, because it is a big mistake. 
What do you say?
Thank you so much :)

Hello Joana,
In that case, it's quite simple really (or as simple as any change request can be on the IMDb)
Just go to the page about Onde Está Elisa? and hit the Edit page button near the bottom of the page
Select Cast ... Correct / Delete
Find the entry for Dutra, Laura and change the Action from Keep to Correct
You can also change the action for everyone else with "(2017)" in their characters name
Hit Check these updates
Change the character's name(s) to remove the "(2017)"
Change Laura Dutra's name to Beatriz Costa
Hit Check these updates
Tick the box for Costa, Beatriz (III)
You can also tick the box to "provide an explanation to assist in processing this change" if you have any documentation as proof
Hit Re-check these updates
Give the explanation if you said you would provide one
Hit Re-check these updates
The background to the section(s) you've changed should go green(ish) and it should offer you a Submit button
Hit the Submit button to submit your request
Then sit back and wait for your submissionto be checked, hopefully approved and the changes madeto the database

You can't just remove the year, but you can change it to 2018 or 2018- as appropriate. Preferably episodes should be added so you can add credits to episodes instead.
