I don't know who did it, wasn't me, but they added "Past Due" to my profile and now it reads I'm a he instead of a she.

My profile now reads that I'm a male but clearly I am a female.

Just checking your name page:

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4759629/

And there is no gender set on the page. If it were, then someone adding a credit should get a warning if they tried to add you as male. So add a gender.

Did you work on Past Due? Oddly it is only showing in the "known for" section, so it might be in the process of being added or removed - if you weren't in it, then I'd wait for the processes to stop doing their thing before trying to fix it.

Thanks, "Past Due" is in pre-production, we don't start filming until April 2014, so don't really understand how that's even on there, I will just wait till after the film is done. Just weird.

There is no need to wait.

You can add a gender to your page now. This will, hopefully, head this problem off (although as your character is called "Linda" I'd have thought the intern adding it might have worked it out).

You can also edit the "Past Due" details with an IMDB Pro subscription:

Not a problem Norine, we try and encourage people to get used to editing their own information ("teach someone to fish..." that kind of thing, as it is a good idea for people to check their page and tweak incorrect information - you are the expert on yourself after all), but we are happy to sort things out if required. So I've submitted the change for Past Due:

140107-152057-326000

It did throw up a few warnings which suggests all your credits are under the male gender, so as well as changing the gender on your page you'll need to check through the other acting credits and ensure that the gender is right on those - not difficult: edit the title, select correct/delete in the cast section, find yourself and select to correct your listing. You will get warnings but can clear these pretty easily. I'd also recommend also checking the box to add a description - give a quick explanation there and add a link in to this thread if they need more information.

Let us know if you are having any problems and we'll help fix it - it is straightforward, just a little time-consuming (although it shouldn't take long once you've got your eye in).
