I was going to update the birthplace on this profile https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0641841/

from "Bradford, England, UK" to "Bradford, West Yorkshire, England, UK" 

But then I noticed it doesn't have a date of birth, so it isn't possible unless I have access to his IMDB pro account.

Can someone update it for me?

You can update birth/death dates if you’ve enough proof/sources. IMDb has some pretty strict rules with these, so sites like Wikipedia or Facebook are not really accepted as proof.

( This is a public forum, so it’s probably best not to add any sensitive/private info to this thread. )

What are you on about? I'm not trying to add his birth date.

The actor hasn't revealed his age or date of birth anywhere, therefore I can't add his date of birth.

I just want to add the county to his birth place Bradford which he must have added himself, as it isn't possible to add a birth place to IMDB unless you add their date of birth too.

county in England, is the equivalent of a state in the USA, therefore it's an important part of a location, so I've added a few links so non-Brits know the city of Bradford is in the county of West Yorkshire.

There's at least 7 Bradford's in England, all of which are small hamlets/villages/neighbourhoods apart from the City of Bradford which is 141 square miles in size, with a population of over 535,000 people, and the 6th biggest city in the UK in terms of area and population..

It would be like saying you're from Bradford, USA although less clear, as there's at least 26 Bradford's in the USA.

Daniel the above reply is incorrect/correct.
The advice and opinion is correct for D.O.B. submissions, but he did not really read and understand your question posed.
This happens frequently.
It was an unintentional mistake.
A. IMDb Pro IS NOT required.
B. You must delete the incomplete place of birth first.
C. Then you can add the new submission after the place of birth has finally been removed.
As you can see from the attached screen grab, it explains how it is all accomplished.
Just copy as I have done and submit it.
Cheers.

I didn't want to delete it, as I was sure that IMDB would only let you submit/update a birth place, if you knew their date of birth.

However after testing it out on another Bradfordian who's listed on IMDB without a date of birth or birth place, it turns I was wrong, and you can just add the birth place by itself.

It looks like I'm going to be adding Bradford, West Yorkshire, England, UK to 100's of age unknown Bradfordian directors, producers, screenwriters, actors, presenters, TV judges, singers, rappers, bands, sportsmen, sports teams, designers, artists, authors, politicians, journalists, newsreaders etc on IMDB in the next few weeks/months, along with birth dates if they're available.
