One of her real projects is Uberstein - Operation Wunderwaffe

She managed to take over imdb number 94, usually reserved for better known filmmakers
http://www.imdb.com/lists/nm0000094 (contains 3 fake lists, all created 7 months ago)
It looks like that number belonged to sci-fi writer J. Reifel, her explanation is here (she claimed to be that writer):

Her recent strategy is to take over one-off actress names in award-winning films.

- La vita è bella (1997)
Claimed credit:  German Auxilliary, as Angel Alise Middelthon, the actual credited actress is "Inger Lise Middelthon" (!!!)

- Requiem (2006)
Claimed credit: "Student" as both (!) Aviana Marie and Angelique Alaïs Adell

- Die Cellistin (1998)
Claimed credit: "Nina", as Alaïs Aviana Adell and (!) "Vanessa" as Angelie Alaïs Adell   

- Anna Karenina (2012/I)
Claimed credit: Ball Dancer (as Marie Marinez)
She was also credited as Lisa Welman, but that is already corrected

- Melancholia (2011) (numerous wins)
claims to play a Wedding maid (uncredited)

- A Good Woman (2004)
Claimed credit: character "Stella's Maid 1" played by Aviana Mia as "Aviana Mari" (actual credit: Arianna Mansi)

- The Duchess (2008) (won Oscar)
claims to play Aristocrat (uncredited)

- Malèna (2000) (won Oscar)
Credit: Alaïs Aviana Adell as Adelaide Alaïs

- La lupa (1996)
Claimed credit: character "Filomena", as Adelaide Alessi

- Miasto 44 (2014)
added her imdb profiles "Alaïs Angélique Adell" and "Aviana Alaïs"

imdb names:
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0011811/ Angelique Ophelia Adell
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000094/ Angelie Alaïs Adell
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1854162/ Aviana Mia

Thanks for highlighting this.  We are investigating and some credits have been moved already (you will need to opt out of reference/combined view to see them).  Due to the nature of the changes, it will take a few days for this to settle.

She has (very likely) also added two fakes to "The Cat Killers" (2009)


Actress "Anglique Alias Julie Reifel" and producer "J. Reifel" -- J. Reifel still links to the sci-fi writer, a very unlikely connection :)

Hi e-kartoffel,

thanks again for flagging this. All of the dubious credits you have detailed have now been dealt with and are no longer showing.

If you are aware of any other credits which are incorrect then would you mind submitting deletes for them? We have taken measures to ensure that no other unverifiable credits are added, or readded, to this page.

Many thanks for all of your help

Could you also delete the "top blonde actress" lists that link to J. Reifel:


They were obviously created for Sylvia Kugler


Best Regards :)
