Images of actress from tv series: list goes on to show pictures from the tv series that do not contain the actress.

Images of actress from TV series: list goes on to show pictures from the TV series that do not contain the actress.  I only want to see the photos with her in them.

This is in the "new" version of Imdb.  I have not had this problem with the old version.

I started on

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10327354/characters/nm4563780?ref_=tt_mv_close
Prodigal Son (2019–2021)
Aurora Perrineau: Dani Powell

This page has a list of photo thumbnails,  and also a box "more photos."

I select the first thumbnail and see 30 photos of the actress in screen grabs from the TV series.  Then I keep hitting right arrow to scroll through the list and photos start showing up without the actress in them.  Apparently this is intentional. 

I don't like it.  I only want the photos that have the actress I am searching for to appear, so I can go to a different page when they run out.  It wastes time scrolling through the pictures of the same TV series that don't have her in them until I figure out that you have no more pictures that match the search criteria I entered.

@chip100  Sorry about that.  This is a bug and is unrelated to the updates to the title pages. We have opened a ticket with the appropriate team to investigate and fix.  Thanks for the problem report.

@chip100 A quick update on this ... it seems this has been broken (and unreported) since last year.  Unfortunately it is not a quick fix.  The team responsible will need to design and build a new solution so this is going to take some time, sorry.

It looks to me it was reported several times on this topic 10 months ago: https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/imdbcom/feedback-on-new-photo-viewer-design/5f4a7ca48815453dba0d6b63

Especially @bderoes seems passionate about it.

@forthehorde  Thanks, yes, this is a very similar issue, however, at least in the filter-by-name case, you can always browse the filtered photos via the title/mediaindex view. 

The problem with title/characters is that you can never see more than the first screenful of character photos, which is much worse.  Both issues have the same underlying resolution and, sadly, it is not a quick fix.

Thanks for explaining the nuances and underlying issue. Good to know at least a fix is considered now.

@forthehorde I haven't noticed any problems with the galleries. I can scroll through the photos with filters for different types or filters for photos containing different people with no problem.

And that x to close the gallery problem was fixed almost straight away.

The only time I have noticed a problem is when photos have been recently added to a TV episode. When you try to scroll through them, it starts scrolling through photos from different episodes on the series itself in a random order.

However after 24 hours, you can scroll through the specific episodes photos in the correct order, without them jumping to photos from random episodes.
