We represent Teagan Croft.
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm7509279/bio?ref_=nm_ov_bio_sm

Her mini bio is wrong. The year next to Home & Away states 1988. The year should be 2015. She wasn't even born in 1988. Can someone from IMDb please amend this ASAP?

Regards,

Sharron: This is not an error, but a consequence of IMDb identifying TV series by the year of their debut. Although Teagan did not appear on "Home and Away" until 2016, the series debuted in 1988, which is why it says she is known for "The Osiris Child (2016), Titans (2018) and Home and Away (1988)."

For a similar example, see the bio of Chuck Todd at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2325620/ which says:
Chuck Todd was born on April 8, 1972 in Miami, Florida, USA as Charles David Todd. He is an actor and executive, known for Meet the Press (1947), Today (1952) and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt (1970).
As you can see, all three of the shows he is known for debuted before he was born.

However, you can do something about this. If Teagan subscribes to IMDbPro, she can select the titles she is known for and omit "Home and Away" from the list if she wants. (She can't change the year associated with "Home and Away", but she can omit it from the list of titles she is known for.)

For details, see http://www.imdb.com/help/search?domain=helpdesk_faq&index=1&file=knownfortopfaq and, for IMDbPro subscribers, http://pro.imdb.com/help/show_leaf?knownforcontrols.

Or, as another alternative, you can simply submit a human-written biography for Teagan which will replace the existing computer-generated biography. The computer-generated biography uses a limited selection of the data available for a person, including the titles they are "known for". By writing a proper biography for her, you can get the existing biography off her page.

I hope this helps.

This makes sense thank you for taking the time to clarify this for us. It can still be a little misleading so we may instruct Teagan's parents to remove the Home & Away credit from the mini bio as they are currently Pro subscribers. Thanks again.
