Disclaimer: I'm a long-time contributor, not an IMDb employee.

The photo you are referring to is actually one of a series of images from the movie's IMDb page.

Heat in the West IMDb page (URL):
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5622408/?ref_=ttmi_tt

Heat in the West IMDb Photo Gallery Page (URL):
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5622408/mediaindex?ref_=tt_ql_pv_1

The image is currently being used as the Primary Image for the film.  When you click the page links for the cast and crew, you'll see that image for the title.

I'm assuming that a contributor (Possibly a member of the production crew?) posted scenes from the film before its release. Ideally, it would be best for the company to post a movie poster for the title's Primary Image. Hopefully, someone from the production will submit a movie poster for the project sooner rather than later.

I hope this explains why the image you see is a photo still from the title's IMDb page. Please wait for an IMDb representative for an official response on the matter.

Not fully sure if I follow. The person in the picture is apparently Deena Heffel who plays ”Sally”? For some reason this picture is now added as a primary image for ”Heat in the West” (usually the primary image is a poster or similar - or at least a better promo shot).


I agree that the primary image of this film should be changed, but why exactly someone is ”personating” you?

(ah, GMJ beat me to it..)

Hi anna marie -

If you look at the image, you can see that it is tagged correctly to Deena Heffel: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5622408/mediaviewer/rm1890451968

As GMJ mentioned above, the Known For section displays the primary poster image for a title, this particular image has been designated as the primary poster for this title because we don't have a poster image listed and the system automatically pulled an image from the photo gallery.  Note that once a poster is uploaded for this title, it will replace the existing still image of Ms. Heffel. 

If you have a poster image for this title that you would like to upload, please see the following Help page for instructions: https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/images-videos/how-do-i-update-my-poster/GA8N34CWGUMJJM98?...#

I hope this helps clarify!

Anna Marie,

It just says you are "known for" acting as Cindy in the film, and it just displays an image of that film which happen to be not you, but should be a legitimate film poster.
Please read the answers provided above.

Anna Marie, 

Please go to the title's IMDb page.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5622408/?ref_=ttmi_tt

On the main page, click the names of the other cast members.

Nathan Eddy (III) (Pete)

Andy Mace (II) (One Shoe)

Shamal Ahmed (Jabar)

On each of the name pages, the Known For section has the same Primary Image of the film with actress Deena Heffel and none of them are playing the role of Sally in the project. 

I hope this clarifies the issue. Please write back if you have any more questions.
