On 28th May 2019, my sister was watching a old rerun of EastEnders from 1989 on the Drama channel and noticed a character, a telephone engineer, who she recognised as the actor, Mark Strong. She confirmed it was him when she saw the end credits. As this was not on his acting credits, I submitted it for entry on her behalf but is has been declined as they were 'unable to verify the information provided'. The episode concerned is now on the UKTV Play player as Classic EastEnders, Series 5, Episode 87. Mark Strong appears at 11m 12s and his name is in the end credits at 28m 08s.

How can I get this role added to his acting credits on IMDb? (The EastEnders episode he is in is shown on IMDb as Episode #1.416.)

It would be best if you could take a screenshot of the actual credits, and perhaps a scene also (just use your phone and take a screenshot from the app)? You can post in this thread (just click the Camera icon).
