Is this your young Amanda Walker? click

Nope, that's Jaime Ray Newman.


Yep, but here role in Supernatural was called Amanda Walker. So I thought perhaps because of this you got the wrong pic.

The 1964 Barbara Bush is mostly credited as Barbara Tyson, so not BY needed. My mistake. 
Thanks for the hint surfeur.

There are two actors called Tom Shaw, one who spends most of his life as a producer but appeared as 'Priest' in The Ninth Configuration and another who appears as Marcus in Resurrecting The Street Walker (pre-release profile currently pending approval).

As the guy who plays Marcus is about 25, he is clearly not the guy who produced and appeared in The Ninth Configuration in 1979!

As I can't find a YoB for either of them, what now?  Is there a way of adding two actors with unknown birthdates to the database?

Short answer: Til now without a BY we don't have a possibility to distinguish online.

Yes, sadly you can only add a fake BY locally.

That's what I figured as otherwise it looks like the same guy appears in two films made over 30 years apart and in the latter he's playing a guy in his mid-20s!  It is a bit daft and there should be some solution other than fabricating a birth year.

That's an interesting comparison, but at least one of your actors has a birth year!  Neither of the ones I am after do and I can't find one anywhere.  As a last resort, I could e-mail the distributors of Resurrecting The Street Walker and ask them, but that's a pretty big long shot.

I could be wrong about this but I have one Robert Taylor linking two profiles, one is incorrect.  Robert Taylor linking the Quo Vadis profile born in 1911 is, but he is also in my Matrix profile.  IMDB says the Robert Taylor in Quo Vadis died in 1969, so I highly doubt they are the same.  I can't find a birthyear for the one in the Matrix.

I've been trying to get this passed but no luck so far, any idea what the problem is

Added BY to Jenna Boyd to distinguish between the American actress and the British actress

Jenna Boyd(1993) From The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants; Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star

http://www.zimbio.com/Jenna+Boyd

This is just a guess, but I'd say it's the lack of documentation for the British Jenna Boyd and the fact IMDB don't list her for Dustbin Baby.

Here's her Spotlight page: http://www.spotlight.com/interactive/cv/681089744609
This does include her Dustbin Baby credit on the television tab.

And here: http://www.thesoundofmusictour.com/cast/jennaboydNov09.php
is a page which also mentions her Dustbin Baby credit.

Both pages also include headshots which should prove it's a different lady as well.
