I accidentally gave a credit for a very minor role on my film's page (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3438632/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1a). How do I remove actor from credited cast to rest of cast listed alphabetically?

There looks to be only two cast members on that movie, I'm not sure if such small casts are divided that way. But you can try to update the cast using the Edit page button at the bottom and choose "Correct/Delete" in the cast drop down box, and click Continue. If the cast members have a number assigned in the Order column, try to remove it from the cast member with the minor role. If not, try to add a number for the one with the large part (Order #1), and leave the other one without a number. If it's possible to divide such small casts, that should do the trick.

There are three cast members total.  1 of which is very minor and I accidentally put her as "3" and so she is appearing under the "starring" section at the top of the page.  
I've tried choosing Change/Delete, but I can only edit the other two actors for some reason, hers just doesn't appear.

Yes, that's what I saw. The update probably hasn't gone completely through the system yet, as that credit doesn't yet show up in reference view or in the edit function. Wait a couple of days and try again. I see the two cast members you can edit now does not have a number in their column, so when you gain the ability to edit all three, you should add a 1 and 2 in their columns and leave hers empty.

If she is credited on screen, then she should have an Order Number. IMDb does not distinguish between major and minor roles, and every person listed in the on-screen credits is treated alike.Also, Order Numbers must be assigned sequentially, so if she is third person listed in the on-screen credits she needs to have the Order Number 3 assigned.

If, on the other hand, she is not listed on screen, she needs to have the (uncredited) attribute included in the IMDb listing, and is not permitted an Order Number.
