I have two credits that I believe are attached to an IMDB page that isn't mine.


I believe my credits got attached to a page that belongs to a Tywon Ronell Lawson, and then some of the details were changed to reflect some of my information.
Is there any way to create my own IMDB page and attached my credits to that one instead?

Ty: It looks like some of the data on that page belongs to a professional basketball player named Ty Lawson, who I assume is not you.

Are the Actor credits for How to Win a GLAAAD Award and The Ouija Experiment 2: Theatre of Death both yours?

If so, the easiest way to fix them is to go to the page for each of those films, and click "Edit page". On the next screen, on the Cast line, select "Correct/Delete". Scroll down and click "Continue".

On the next screen, select "Correct" in the drop-down box to the left of your name. Click "Check these updates".

On the next screen, you will be able to edit the name. Change it by adding a roman numeral (II) in parentheses so that it will say:
Larson, Ty (II)

Also, check the box marked "provide an explanation to assist in processing this change". Click "Re-check these updates".

On the next screen, there will be an Explanation box. Enter something in it like "I am Ty Larson and I played this role, but I am not the same pro basketball player Ty Larson who is listed at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3449906/. I am submitting this correction to move my credit to my name with a separate roman numeral."

There will also be a warning with several options below it. Select the option for "This is a different person not currently listed - create 'Larson, Ty (II)'." Scroll down and click "Re-check these updates".

On the next screen, your data should appear with a green background and you should be able to click "Submit these updates".

Is there any other data on http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3449906/ that relates to you? If so, please explain what it is and someone will be able to advise you.

Good luck!
