How do I delete an IMDB page? An actor profile page was created for me without my permission a few years ago and I need it taken down due to having a new profession - I don't want this associated with my name anymore. Please help!

IMDb Policy.
Sorry EmmaB......
But the database follows this....

Thanks Ed. Do you know if I can speak to an IMDB staff member/manager to review this policy and explore potential for an exception? I did not consent to this page being made and would like to explore options.

You certainly can speak to one.
Just wait. An employee/supervisor will reply right here.
It will be about 24-48 Hours.
I gave you the same answer that they will.
So just hang on for confirmation.
Unfortunately however IMDb Staff have guidelines. They do not take on any case by case exceptions to the rules. So there is no "options" to explore. Your saying that you did not "consent" has no bearing on the matter.
IMDb is a database of known fact. It reports fact. You have just confirmed the "fact" that you indeed were in the title in question. This is not in dispute.
Since it is "fact", and IMDb is a reporter of accurate "facts", they will not remove anything that is accurate.

So, please wait for a staff employee/supervisor. They will say exactly the same as I have.

Hi Rida, thank you for your reply. Perhaps there is a loophole. Could you please update the information on the page to change the actor’s name? I don’t believe it is accurate. Perhaps I could contact you directly to remedy this?

Emma, just out of curiosity, why do you want it taken down?  How would this negatively affect your new profession?  It was a bit part in a comedy series.  It wasn't like you were doing porn.
