This has been going on for several years. There are obviously more than one Michael Edwards. I keep seeing my personal credits listing on Michael Edwards (I) listing. They are NOT his ,they are mine. From the seventies I have accumulated credits and now they are listed with some othe Michael Edwards. Now that SAG/AFTRA have merged perhaps corrections can be made. Specifically the credits QUEEN,ILL FLY AWAY,ROOTS THE GIFT,AT CLOSE RANGE,WHAT COMES AROUND,FRAMED and WE THE WOMEN do not belong to the Michael Edwards,ex model born in 1944 but are mine Michael Edwards,character actor born in 1946 (listed in SAG as Michael A. Edwards) please correct this grievous error as soon as possible. (the other Michael Edwards:pr4mr46@aol.com)

The problem is there look to be about 10 actors called Michael Edwards:

http://www.imdb.com/find?q=Michael%20...

This means that the situation needs some policing from the various folks involved, checking that credits haven't ended up in separate entries (meaning there could be 2 or 3 entries for the same person - nothing a quick merge can't fix) or ended up on someone else's.

The main issues seems to be I can find Michael Edwards (I) easily:

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0250218/

But not you.

Do you have an entry at the moment? Did you previously have one? If no to the former and yes (or maybe) to the latter then they have been incorrectly merged. You can go through all the credits that are yours and change them so a new one for you is created, but if an incorrect merge has taken place then it might be staff can get this reversed.

If you can provide a bit more information to answer those question, we should be able to give you more detailed advice on how to resolve this.

We'll need more details, e.g. other than the ones mentioned above, are there other credits currently listed on pages under other Michael Edwardses that belong to you?

Once we have all the information, we can move things around so that they are all on your page (which I understand is here: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2029977/ )

If the credits are in IMDB then you are going to have to be more specific.

So if, for example, you are referring to Point Man the TV series, then what episode and were you just credited as Self?

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2877120/

It might be better to add those credits yourself, as you know what the information is.

Your best bet to avoid having this merged into the other one by accident is to add some biographical information (like the stuff you've mentioned above) here:

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2029977/

That will flag up that they are entries for different people and might also assist people adding information in the future (I'm sure I've been helped before by the bio describing one actor as British and another as America).
