My credit is on someone else's page

I have been pursuing an acting career for many years, since I was a young teenager. I recently created my IMDB page and found out that a few of the project I'd worked on had given me an IMDB credit. One of those credits, however was given to a different person of the same name. On IMDB, I am Kathryn Grant (III), and one of my credits is showing up on Kathryn Grant (II)'s page. How do I go about getting that changed so that my credit appears on my profile and not hers? Thank you!

Edit the title and select to correct the right category. If you follow the steps through you can add your name (including Roman numerals) instead of theirs.

How do you "edit the title?"

Scroll down to the bottom of the page and hit the big yellow "Edit page" button.

I think Emperor may be being a little to brief in his explanation.  He means:

Sttarting from the Title page that has the credit, click on the Edit page button

Choose to Correct/Delete  Cast Credits
Continue

Change the Action to Correct beside your misassigned credit.
Check these updates

Change the Roman numeral to (III), so the name matches your primary name
Check the box beside provide an explanation ....
Re-check these updates

Enter the explanation - that this work was done by you, but was misassigned and you are moving it to the correct person.
Re-check these updates

You should  now be able to Submit the correction.

It may take several days for the change, and the credit may disappear for a while during the process.
