Ellie Bensinger is in the Titanic:

For some reason I am not listed in the credits but please see information below proving I was the Tea Room Girl in the Titanic. And add it to my IMDb page.

My initial request for this credit can be found under reference number # 160215-232537-291000


Below is an picture of a recent residual check I received. You can clearly see performer name is Ellie Bensinger and the production is Titanic.



Below is a picture of my original call sheet. You can see my name highlighted in yellow several cast members below Kate Winslet and Leo Dicaprio.



Below is a picture of a page in a 1998 Vanity Fair which featured my scene. (I am the little girl)  

Below is a link to a Huffington Post article written about my involvement in the film.

Since IMDb's main purpose and function is to document the on screen credits for film/tv, while they sometimes list "uncredited" work, they will mark a credits list as complete when it's verified as so, and lock it to future edits.  This is one of the reasons they give for not accepting "uncredited" submissions.

See:
I appeared in a film but my name is not in the credits. Can I be added to IMDb?

particularly:

We do not add additional entries (including uncredited ones) to titles whose cast has already been locked.

I forgot to add, Titanic's cast list is marked, "verified as complete."

Bluesman: I thought that "verified as complete" referred to the credited cast. Ellie is saying that she was uncredited in the film.

Ellie: Can you please post a screen capture from the movie itself here, showing yourself clearly visible on screen?

gromit,

Thanks, you're right. It doesn't seem to be locked yet.

Correct. I am not listed in the credits at the end of the film but I do appear on screen twice. The entire cast was not always listed in older films which is the case with titanic. Below is a still from the film of my scene. I was 5 years old.

(I'm not part of the IMDB team/moderators)

 Below is a still from the film of my scene. 
It's good info, but I believe the IMDB data editors still need the screenshot from the actual FILM where you appear (the truth is that PR stills from the film are often very different from the actual scene from the film). Do you roughly know when the scene occurs in the film? I can check the scene for you if needed.

That would be great as I don't have a copy of the film with me right now. It's right in the middle of the film. It's the scene right before the front of the boat "come Josephine my flying machine" kiss. Right after the scene where jack pulls rose into the weight room and tells her not to let her flame go out.
