I am switching careers and no longer want my acting credits associated with my professional name. Here is the link to my page: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm8330106/

Is there any way this page can be deleted, or unindexed from search results? At the very least, can the name on the page be updated to a more generic version of my name so it does not come up in search results?

IMDb is a reporter of facts, just like news organization, just like a public library that keeps all books.
News organizations don't retract facts (Censor)
Libraries don't remove books (Censor)
IMDb is the same. It won't censor factual information.

This is a reprint of policy............IMDb policy on Deleting valid data

IMDb aims to be the most comprehensive and reliable source of information on movies, TV and celebrities. We are committed to accuracy and it is our longstanding policy not to alter or remove correct factual information from our records.

IMDb will not remove accurate information. If you try to delete an item of data which is accurate, your delete will not be processed.

Great, that's helpful. Can I change the name on my IMDb page then so that my page is not indexed so high up under search results for my professional name?

Would not change any search result. A name change maintains your old name on your page as an AKA.

That is remarkably unfortunate. Actors may be private individuals. They should be given the option to remove themselves from the IMDb database. I'm quite dissatisfied with this policy.

For context: All of my credits are for Youtube/series that were never released broadly. It doesn't even seem professionally accurate to be listed as an "Actor" on IMDb.

Accuracy has nothing to do with professionalism, or lack therof.
