Help re: Yasuko Endô name confusion. Two actresses with same name when written in roman letters

The actress Yasuko Endô  at https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1085326/?ref_=fn_nm_nm_1 committed suicide in 1986 but there are two other credits for some other person for 1994 and 2000s. The one above is 遠藤康子 in Japanese but the one who did the 1994 TV show is 遠藤靖子 and no relation. I don't see other source for Final Fantasy game but cannot be related to this actress. Please help split the two actress.

You could try to submit a correction for the 1994 title by going to the film page and editing the cast.

 

In the name field add (II) next to the existing name: Endô, Yasuko (II). On the next page choose "This is a different person not currently listed - create 'Endô, Yasuko (II)'".

 

The 2008 soundtrack credit would have to be corrected on that title's soundtrack page. Since the soundtrack credit may not belong to the same person as the 1994 credit it may be best to remove the link to the name page. I can submit this if you wish.

@Peter_pbn thank you please help, I tried to fix it but maybe I did it wrong. I don't even see what field the Final Fantasy credit is from to get rid of it.

@Peter_pbn hello sorry I answer again, but there are at least three! The narrator of Georgie! is named 遠藤泰子 and no relation to the others. I still don't know Final Fantasy. Thank you again

Hi,

 

I have submitted to remove the soundtrack link, so the credit should disappear from the page.

 

It's best if you submit the other edits since you are the one who is doing the research. You should also try to mention your source in the explanation field when you submit.

 

You could edit Lady Georgie and create Endô, Yasuko (III), but it may be better to wait until you have successfully created Endô, Yasuko (II).

 

If you need more help with moving credits you can try following this guide:

Thank you Peter but IMDB does not believe me. I send articles as proof but they refuse to believe even the fact she is dead. What is enough proof to get a change?

It's hard to say exactly. Not Wikipedia, something more official.  You can submit again if you find a better way to explain it.

thank you, Peter, I will try. I think they do not like that the articles are not English but no work of any of these women has been released in English.
