I am having a real problem sorting out my profile. I have been identified as two different people with different spelling and shown as both male and female. Despite my best efforts I cannot get this changed. Eilian Wyn

I am male. I have been listed under Eilian Wynn (that seems to be the female) and Eilian Wyn-Jones. A recent credit had listed me as Eilian Wyn-Jones. Iasked them to change it 0 and the changed it to Eilian Wynn!!!

Eilian Wyn.

Eilian: It looks like your credits have since been merged under the name Eilian Wyn, but with several actor credits and one actress credit listed on the same page.

To fix this, go to the page at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0943959/ and click "Edit page".

On the next screen, under Biographical Information, on the Other work line, select "Correct/Delete". In addition, on the Gender line (under Other data), select "Add item". Click "Continue".

On the next screen, in the drop-down box to the left of the entry about the pantomime, select "Correct". Under Gender, select the button for Male. Click "Check these updates".

On the next screen, edit the entry about the pantomime to have it begin "He performed ..." instead of "She performed ...". Check the box marked "provide an explanation to assist in processing this change." Click "Re-check these updates".

On the next screen, in the Explanation box, enter something like "I am Eilian Wyn, and I am a man, not a woman. I am submitting a correction to the pronoun in this entry as well as a gender correction in this same submission." You can then click "Submit these updates".

Allow a few days for the correction to go through. Once it is processed, the biography on your page that now begins "Eilian Wyn is an actor and actress, known for ..." should automatically change to begin "Eilian Wyn is an actor, known for ...".

Good luck!
