Correcting a character's last name on the Character page

For the movie "The Spectacular Now" the character played by Shailene Woodley, Aimee, has her last name misspelled on the Character page (http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0327507/): it should be Finecky, not Finicky. At 1:35:02 in the film her name on Miles Teller/Sutter's mobile phone screen is "Aimee Finecky." On the main page (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1714206/) only her first name is listed, and I can't see any way to correct the character page. Any help?

Often this seems to happen when the character name gets changed in the title after the character page was created.

If she is listed as "Aimee" in the credits, that is how it should be shown on the title and I'd guess this was initially added as "Aimee Finicky" before the film was released and the credits finalised.

I suspect it'll need staff intervention to fix - the simplest would be removing the full name. I'm not really sure what the screenshot is showing, but it doesn't seem to be the credits of the film.

The credits list her as only Aimee, with no last name. The screen shot is from the film itself when she is calling the Miles Teller character identifying her as the caller. The issue is with her last name, not her first name: it's fine. So the issue seems to be only with the Character page, not the main page.

Ah right - seems the best bet is to remove the surname, but we'll have to wait and see what staff say.
