How do I remove someone as an agent? Who is "Actually an Actor, not an Agent".

Is there something special that needs to go in the "Reason for Change" section ??? Been submitting this request for a YEAR now !

Absolutely unacceptable I still have to deal with this. I maintain a Pro-Acct. as well, This should have been "removed" the "first time" I put a change in a year ago.

"Much appreciated" if someone may know the correct wordage to add to the "Reason for Change" section to delete this poor actor showing up as an talent agent. sheesh

Who is your client? Is it possible that there is also an agent with the same name as him?

If you provide the person's name, the regulars here may be better able to advise you as to the best way to fix the problem.

His name is " Hall, Rodney M ".

It's been over a year and a half, I've submitted this removal so many times. The problem that's strange, he's listed as a "Talent Agent" for several of my Clients ? I've individually tried removing him as an "Agent" from each of their pages (numerous times), and still showing him not just as one of my Clients but also an Agent to each of them?

My company is " Onyx Moon Agency [us] ", I'm " Gossard, Emmi " . Thanks so much for your help!

Emmi: This is odd. The only way I can find to submit the correction is to go to the page of each of his supposed "clients", click "Edit page", and then select "Correct/Delete" on the line for "Representation: I know the company and (optionally) the agent".

Do you have the data submission receipts from when you tried that yourself? Please post your last full data submission here on this message board. You can copy it out of the receipt you would have received from IMDb by e-mail immediately after sending it in. Some of the regulars on the board may review it and, if they can, they may provide suggestions as to how to improve the submission if necessary. (Also, please include the submission reference number -- it's an 18-digit number that will look something like 140123-123456-789000.)

Emmi: I would suggest going into further detail in the explanation. Here is my proposed replacement explanation:

Johnson, Keith (XIV) 
Representation: I know the company and (optionally) the agent - Delete 
Old - 
Type: Talent Agent 
Agent: Hall, Rodney M. 
Explanation: I am Emmi Gossard, who is already listed as Keith Johnson's talent agent for personal appearances. As such, I am familiar with Keith's representation and I know that Rodney M. Hall does not serve as a talent agent for Keith Johnson. In fact, I am also Rodney M. Hall's talent agent for personal appearances as already listed in IMDb, and I know that Rodney himself is not a talent agent; he is an actor. Thus, I can confirm that Rodney M. Hall should not be listed as a talent agent.

If that doesn't work, I don't know what can be done other than to wait for an IMDb staffer to see this thread and fix the problem, which may take a while.

Good luck!
