This is a collection of discussions on the deletion of articles related to Actors and filmmakers. It is one of many deletion lists coordinated by WikiProject Deletion sorting. Anyone can help maintain the list on this page.

Adding a new AfD discussion
Adding an AfD to this page does not add it to the main page at WP:AFD. Similarly, removing an AfD from this page does not remove it from the main page at WP:AFD. If you want to nominate an article for deletion, go through the process on that page before adding it to this page. To add a discussion to this page, follow these steps:
  1. Edit this page and add {{Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/PageName}} to the top of the list. Replace "PageName" with the relevant article name, i.e. the one on the existing AFD discussion. Also, indicate the title of the article in the edit summary, it is particularly helpful to add a link to the article in the edit summary. When you save the page, the discussion will automatically appear.
  2. You should also tag the AfD by adding {{subst:delsort|Actors and filmmakers|~~~~}} to it, which will inform editors that it has been listed here. You may place this tag above or below the nomination statement or at the end of the discussion thread.
Note that there are a few scripts and tools that can make this easier.
Removing a closed AfD discussion
Closed AfD discussions are automatically removed by a bot.
Other types of discussions
You can also add and remove links to other discussions (prod, CfD, TfD etc.) related to Actors and filmmakers.
Further information
For further information see Wikipedia's deletion policy and WP:AfD for general information about Articles for Deletion, including a list of article deletions sorted by day of nomination.

  • Strong Keep Never dubbed a notable character? He plays the main protagonist in YuYu Hakusho, which is a level 5 vital article. Not to mention he has a ton of other significant roles like Kirishima in My Hero Academia, Tsukutsun Tsun in Dr. Slump, Hatsuharu Soma in Fruits Basket, and Tamotsu Fukuda in ID – Invaded to name only a few. Link20XX (talk) 14:18, 27 September 2021 (UTC)[]
  • User:Link20XX Thank you for pointing this out. I won't nominate an anime voice actors for deletion again because clearly I don't know what i'm talking about. I'll let this nomination run its course though because my No RS contention remains unresolved. In the end, that is the most important benchmark for notability. Mottezen (talk) 16:04, 27 September 2021 (UTC)[]
  • This article has some RS as-is (Anime News Network is generally reliable and Behind the Voice Actors is ok for series with the checkmark) but as per WP:NACTOR #1 Has had significant roles in multiple notable films, television shows, stage performances, or other productions. Even a primary source to verify the roles will be sufficient, we just need to prove they had them. Link20XX (talk) 16:41, 27 September 2021 (UTC)[]
  • The ANN source is his resume and the Behind the Voice Actors source is a list of cast members for a show. Mottezen (talk) 02:16, 28 September 2021 (UTC)[]
  • Keep per WP:NACTOR. This nomination has been partially withdrawn; Mottezen might like to consider withdrawing it so that it can be closed. Nothing wrong with a misunderstanding. Stlwart111 01:33, 28 September 2021 (UTC)[]
    • I'm not withdrawing the nomination because I can't find a single line of prose written on this person anywhere else on the internet. When there is so little sourcing available, SNGs are insufficient to establish notability. Mottezen (talk) 02:16, 28 September 2021 (UTC)[]
      • SNGs are insufficient to establish notability is simply false. As per WP:N, A topic is presumed to merit an article if it meets either the general notability guideline (GNG) below, or the criteria outlined in a subject-specific notability guideline (SNG) listed in the box on the right; and it is not excluded under the What Wikipedia is not policy. By commenting on the SNG, I assume you acknowledge Cook meets NACTOR, which means you admit they are notable. I suggest you withdraw this nomination. Link20XX (talk) 03:28, 28 September 2021 (UTC)[]
        • "Presumed" doesn't mean "definitely is". Read a bit further in WP:N: articles which pass an SNG or the GNG may still be deleted or merged into another article, especially if adequate sourcing or significant coverage cannot be found. With current sourcing, this is one of those cases. Mottezen (talk) 04:19, 28 September 2021 (UTC)[]
          • You clearly didn't do a WP:BEFORE search. I just spent 5 minutes and already found several good sources from Anime News Network (1, 2, 3, among others) and his BTVA page here, which is reliable for all the roles with green check marks. Additionally, it just says may not will, and as I have shown in just 5 minutes of looking, sources certainly exist. Worst case, we could just cite the episode credits, but this is still a way to prove their roles, which is all that is required to do to meet the SNG.

I do not think this person meets WP:NACTOR. Per NACTOR, they must have multiple significant roles in notable productions. Looking at their roles list, most of them are "boy" or "passersby", which I strongly doubt are more than additional voices. As for their named roles:

  • W'z, just the "young" version of the character. While I haven't seen this series, from what I have seen of other series the "young" voice is rarely used and only makes brief appearances when it does.
  • Stand My Heroes: Piece of Truth, not a notable production.
  • Ahiru no Sora, this role is listed at the very bottom of the list with no description, unlikely a major role.
  • Sing "Yesterday" for Me, young version only.
  • Smile Down the Runway, young version only.
  • Tsukiuta, young version only
  • Kingdom, character is not even mentioned in the list.
  • Peach Boy Riverside, character is 10th on the list with no description, unlikely to be a major character.

A WP:BEFORE search didn't give me much additional coverage either. Not to mention the creator of the article is currently at SPI and has been accused of WP:COI editing. Link20XX (talk) 17:34, 25 September 2021 (UTC)[]

WP:BEFORE done, and given the ubiquity of internet coverage of manga/anime and so on, it would appear to me anomalous that Mr Ueno has received little and bordering on none at all "WP:SIGCOV". This article would appear to fail any number of tests for notability, including but not limited to WP:ANYBIO, WP:NACTOR. Would a redirect to Kamen Rider Den-O be an appropriate outcome?

This article was created in 2009 and the only reference given was IMDB. It was marked as unreferenced then. It remains marked as unreferenced and has no new references.

I have attempted to find sources but can only find Wikipedia mirrors and database built pages. The only news hits I get are for other people with the same name.

I do not believe there are sufficient reliable sources upon which to base an article on. When Wikipedia is the main source of information about a topic we have an original research problem.

Notability may be borderline as well, playing small roles in movies and appearing in a scattering of episodes on tv shows. The article claims the actor died in 2009, though I have not been able to confirm this with a reliable source. HighInBC Need help? Just ask. 00:31, 25 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Does not appear to meet WP:NACTOR or WP:GNG – Although he is credited on the poster for Kanang Anak Langkau: The Iban Warrior, the criterion for NACTOR that would best fit him is "significant roles in multiple notable films, television shows, stage performances, or other productions" and after combing through his credits in the article I can't say there is anything else that meets this requirement. Additionally, as NACTOR is only an indicator, GNG still has relevance, and I fail to find any significant coverage of the actor so far, unless the coverage is in another language. (There don't appear to be any other pages in other wikis to draw sources from).

WP:TOOSOON at best. Aside from this SIGCOV, even mere mentions are not found in online portals of reputed reliable sources. The thing about that WP:SIGCOV, aside from being promotional which almost all Nepali entertainment coverage is, is that its clone is found here in another WP:RS. It was posted two days later and credits the piece to "Annapurna", calling it news which it isn't. That raises question about both reliability and independence; one SIGCOV isn't enough anyway.

  • Comment. While I agree with the nominator's analysis overall, my only hesitation to voting delete is the claimed award wins which the nominator did not address in the source analysis. @Usedtobecool is there a reason why we should not count these awards towards notability?4meter4 (talk) 00:39, 27 September 2021 (UTC)[]
    Thank you 4meter4! I did not mention them because the sources are trash and the awards wouldn't otherwise be enough for notability. I have never heard of the last two awards. I don't follow the field closely but when I've seen awards listed on other musician bios, I've at least been able to say that I've heard of them. They are sourced to an English site; I think you'll be able to tell the site is spam and not acceptable. It mentions the Young Mind Award but not the Everest Award. Searching for "Everest Music Award" on google gives exactly two results: this article and one mirror. My best guess is, Everest Award is a hoax ("Sagarmatha" is the Nepali word for Mt. Everest). For Young Minds Award, Google goes directly to the UK, even though I am searching from Nepal. That leaves "Sagarmath Music Award" which I have seen listed on other bios on Wikipedia but it does not have an article and it can't be used to presume notability. I found an RS about the award[1]. It says there are 44 categories. The cited nonRS gives the list which has four different categories for "Best Male Model". I don't know why models would have different categories per genre, except to increase the number of recipients. The RS also says the awards are presented based on "sms voting and jury judgement". It does not even bother to list all the categories and winners. So, the newsworthy bit with the event was that a minister was present and one artist got a lifetime achievement award and a few journalists were recognised; I think if winning here meant anything, the news would start with who won best singer, composer, song, album, etc. What help is an award list without a verifying RS alongside it?

And he loves acting, he set his goal of becoming a singer when he was 6 years old, and set a 25-year-old deadline.

  • There is enough biographical coverage of Jeremy Lee in the sources to establish notability and justify a separate article from Mirror (group). Cunard (talk) 00:02, 20 September 2021 (UTC)[]
  • Comment Looking at the poor refs in turn that the editor has supplied:
  • Ref 1 states: Jeremy's unassuming and low-profile personality has kept him out of the limelight. However, this does not mean that Jeremy is not good enough. On the contrary, he is a consistent dancer and singer in the group. Now we're counting down 10 things you didn't know about Jeremy, so let's learn more about him!' That is PR.
  • Ref 2 states: Jeremy Lee, who has been recognised as the most gentle member of MIRROR by Joey Leung, has released his single "Dream Words" on his Youtube channel. Jeremy thanked those who helped him in a long post on IG for the release of the song. Jeremy explained the origin of "Dream Words" on IG: "I have a lot of people to thank for 'Dream Words', and first of all, I have to thank Kitten. Thank you for your heart, which has given me more and more confidence in myself, and thank you for your selflessness which has made 'The Lucky Kid' and 'Dream Words' possible. That is PR and isn't in-depth.
  • Ref 3 states MIRROR has reached the end of its six concert series "MIRROR ONE & ALL LIVE 2021", in addition to the popular king Jiang Tao and Ian, other members such as Jeremy (Lee Chun Kit) is also quite worthy of everyone's attention. Recently, Jeremy and Jiang Tao shot a cosmetics commercial together, which attracted the attention of netizens. Jeremy is actually a very introverted person ...... Editor: Oriental Xindi|Original post: New Monday丨Photos: Jeremy@IG、ViuTV That is the whole with a series of pictures. Not in-depth and again another block of PR, from the same paper.

The rest of the references are the same. They all PR. Several weeks ago he was unknown, now he is supposed to be notable, due because of PR. They are shallow, mediocre and fails WP:SIGCOV. scope_creepTalk 07:06, 20 September 2021 (UTC)[]

  • These articles are not "PR". These articles provide detailed independent reporting and analysis of the subject. The Hong Kong Economic Times article notes from Google Translate, "When participating in "Stars Made by the People", Jeremy was often accused of having no personal characteristics and 'Korean taste strong'." This is unflattering coverage of the subject. Cunard (talk) 07:30, 20 September 2021 (UTC)[]
  • The articles are very short, often four or five lines, they are not-indepth, with lots of pictures to get audience recognition. They fail WP:BASIC. Several weeks ago he was unknown. Jeremy was often accused, Jeremy's unassuming and low-profile personality, Jeremy has always been not. They are classic PR. Since when is Wikipedia become a listing service for every neerdowell, mediocre subject; turning it into almanac. He has been selected by committee to become a singer, who otherwise would have been completly unknown. He is so mediocre he a needed a sustained PR campaign to make his recognisable. There is not one reference here that has not been written by an agency. scope_creepTalk 07:41, 20 September 2021 (UTC)[]
  • At least I wouldn't think ref 4 as PR. The ref titled "專訪[...]Jeremy李駿傑" means "Interview [...] Jeremy Lee Chun-kit". It should be independent from the individual. Sun8908Talk 07:49, 20 September 2021 (UTC)[]
  • It is a PR as well. It states on the article. Images courtesy of the Brand. That combined with many links to his social media accounts. scope_creepTalk 08:03, 20 September 2021 (UTC)[]
  • The five articles I listed provide 325 words, 926 words, 1,105 words, 1,061 words, and 1,634 words of coverage, respectively. I do not consider "The articles are very short, often four or five lines, they are not-indepth" to be accurate. That some of the articles have numerous photos does not detract from the articles' reliability as they are published by reputable publishers. That the publisher Media Chinese International said the "images in the article are courtesy of the brand" does not make the article PR. The article was written by the zh:明報周刊 magazine's staff writer Nana Wong. Regarding "Several weeks ago he was unknown", this is incorrect since the subject has been part of the band Mirror since 2018 and received coverage in 2020 for his role in a web drama. Regarding "He has been selected by committee to become a singer, who otherwise would have been completly unknown", Wikipedia:Notability (music) does not say that a singer who was selected by committee and received significant coverage for his activities years afterwards is not notable. Cunard (talk) 08:12, 20 September 2021 (UTC)[]
  • The last reference are a blocks of text, 4-5 lines that may consistute 1634 words. This is one: She also said that many fans had asked her why she didn't give Jeremy a chance, and she said, "I don't want to push him, but once I do, I can't give him a chance to lose. I believe that as Jeremy continues to work hard to equip himself, his future development will become stronger and stronger, and I believe that we are all looking forward to Jeremy's new direction. The images have been taken from persons fan club and his social media sites. This is PR. scope_creepTalk 08:21, 20 September 2021 (UTC)[]

The article was started by User:Amerikids, who was later blocked because the username was promotional. In addition, the subject may have founded a company named Amerikids. A COI tag was added to the article, which was removed by User:September1947, which has only two edits, both to this article and is thus a WP:SPA. Recently User:GreenKids has been editing the article. I suggested that User:GreenKids might have a COI. User:GreenKids made a number of edits including finally editing Talk:Lynn Rogoff with proposed changes. I've made some of the changes, but I'm left with a feeling that the subject of this article is not notable.

Looking at WP:CREATIVE, they might meet one of the criteria, but not the others. They are not important or widely cited. They have not developed a new concept. They did write No Maps on My Taps, but I don't see a writing credit as meeting the requirements for notability. I could be wrong here. Their work is not a monument or exhibition.

Looking at WP:PROF, I don't see that the subject of the article meets any of the criteria. The awards they have received do not meet the notability requirements.

So, is the subject of this article notable because of their writing of No Maps on My Taps? Is this work a "significant or well-known work"? Is it the subject of "of multiple independent periodical articles or reviews"? I feel it is borderline and would like the opinion of others here. Cxbrx (talk) 16:52, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[]

  • Keep. I have added several references to the article to improve it, and weeded out some unverifiable content. COI is not as big of an issue now. She is the writer for an Emmy Award winning documentary which has had sustained notability (with coverage as late as 2017 in The New Yorker). Additionally, her play Love, Ben Love, Emma has coverage in academic reference works as well as reviews. Between these two contributions, she passes criteria 3 of WP:CREATIVE.4meter4 (talk) 20:17, 24 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Comment: I'm happy with 4meter4 edits and removal of COI tag on the article. I felt that this article was borderline notable and wanted to have other editors take a look. I put quite a bit of effort in to the article, but had nagging doubts. I'd like to let this AfD continue to run and see if there is any other input. I'm fine with any outcome, mainly I wanted to be sure that I was not being conned in to keeping a non-notable article. Many thanks for everyone's time. Cxbrx (talk) 22:00, 24 September 2021 (UTC)[]

  • Keep - Considering the nomination has come from an esteemed editor like scope_creep, I will try to give a detailed rational and try my best indeed. WP:NACTOR requires 'significant' roles in multiple notable films. I accepted it on the basis of Mahanubhavaru where she is the leading lady and second Karshanam, again the female lead. What's significant and not in WP:NACTOR has been debated over various AFDs etc. I have been part of many of them and my understanding of that is - if the actor is in the lead or at least second lead, it should count. Indian films (and here we are talking about Kannada films) are portrayed as male dominated so I can understand why they would feel like that roles of the female actor ere not significant - since the plot doesn't talk about the female leads much. But it's nothing but patriarchy - not giving right attention and credit (and even pay) to female co-stars despite the fact that they are equally important and play a significant role in the films. There are her other projects which I feel are notable but people have not created pages for them so far; but I guess a few of them are likely to pass WP:NFILM. The other reason I accepted it was WP:BASIC which doesn't particularly need sigcov. I saw a few print sources cited that were in local language with her pictures [2], [3]. I opened those and found that there are a massive number of local print sources on her. Check here [4]. I have felt that reliability of print is higher than online (my own opinion) and local sources should always count and have equal value as English sources. National English media is unlikely to report and of course there is a political battle between Hindi (the allegedly National language) and local southern languages in India. So for subjects belonging to such industries, local sources should be considered valuable. Considering these local ones, WP:BASIC seems to be crossed and in my opinion, even WP:NACTOR is achieved. Apologies for such long response; I have a 100% track record at AFC and I am very careful in accepting/rejecting articles and I hope I will maintain my record. Thanks!

Also, Indian media write about anyone who claims to be an actor (see Paid news in India) and for that fact we don't keep articles on actors just because of their appearance in the media unless they satisfy WP:NACTOR for example Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Janhvi Kapoor and many more.

  • Comment I don't think these are minor roles. The coverages clearly indicate that they are leading roles, as also explained by Beccaynr (whom I give credit for my understanding of WP:BASIC after losing a number of AFD battles to them!) About interviews, my understanding has been that what is outside double quotes can be considered for notability and that's why, my rational is linked with WP:BASIC and not necessarily WP:GNG. I definitely agree that journalism in India is now plagued with paid news but that doesn't mean that all news is paid news. The sources cited here are credited to journalists. Again, would focus back to value of sources in local languages and that they should not be overlooked. Nomadicghumakkad (talk) 23:19, 19 September 2021 (UTC)[]
    • None of her films is independently notable. The notability of her debut film Mahanubhavaru is questionable and can be challenged by anyone. The film was released in 2017 and only received 1 review which is insufficient as per WP:NFILM and there is no significant coverage in reliable sources except the announcements etc. Her another film Karshanam was released in 2018 and I can't find a single full-length review by a notable critic about it. Google yield merely 15 results for "Karshanam" and most of them are not even about the film. GSS💬 14:27, 20 September 2021 (UTC)[]
  • Comment They are minor roles. She is currently a bit-part actor at a very very early stage of her career. They're is not one staring part, not even a part in a major series, where she wasn't a support actor. The references offered are all PR. The references offered in archive.org state: New Comers Karshanam by Yuva Chethana in late 2018. It is PR as well. They are all junk references. She doen't meet WP:NACTOR. scope_creepTalk 07:24, 20 September 2021 (UTC)[]

  • Delete Falls short of WP:NACTOR which needs "significant roles in multiple notable films." Without the presence of critical reviews, neither significance nor notability can be duly assessed. Two films have articles but their notability is shaky. Also, the concerns about the independence of the sources cannot be ignored when nearly all of them are interviews . -- Ab207 (talk) 16:55, 20 September 2021 (UTC)[]
  • Comment Interesting inputs. Bit part is being defined as A bit part is a role in which there is direct interaction with the principal actors and no more than five lines of dialogue, often referred to as a five-or-less or under-five in the United States, or under sixes in British television, or a walk-on part with no dialogue. A bit part is higher than that of an extra and lower than that of a supporting actor. An actor who regularly performs in bit roles, either as a hobby or to earn a living, is referred to as a bit player, a term also used to describe an aspiring actor who has not yet broken into supporting or leading roles.
Subject is on the poster of the first film [5]. I don't think a bit part actor would be given space on the posters. On Karshanam, I was able to locate a dubbed link on youtube [6]. A quick skim through was sufficient to gather that this is not a bit part or a supporting role. For Mahanabhavaru, I found a review at TOI, rated 2 out of 5 [7]m one at Chitraloka rated 3 out of 5 [8]. I have a feeling there will be more local (Karnataka) sources. On Karshanam, there is one in Asia Net news [9] and one in Cinibuzz [10]. Both are local languages. Also, film reviews is not the only criteria. If there is regular reporting on updates of the film, the film can still pass WP:GNG of it's own - which is how we end up having wiki pages of many films that are not even released yet. Google search results would still give limited results because it won't pick a lot of Kannada material. The last argument circles back to WP:BASIC. Archives [11] illustrates her journey, various roles and her biographical details in English, Kannada and Malyalam. I don't agree they are paid unless proven otherwise. I agree they are interviewish. But like mentioned before, there is enough material outside that she is saying herself as a primary source. Not having reception of work is not ideal indeed. I have myself opposed this for authors and actors. But I have lost many of those AFDs where I voiced against not having proper reception. WP:BASIC was recognized over the issues of absence of reception. I think that's all I got on this one unless I find something fascinatingly new! Would have been really great to have some Kannada reading editors weigh in. Nomadicghumakkad (talk) 01:18, 21 September 2021 (UTC)[]
  • I would take your word for having significant roles but for notability, its not unreasonable to expect atleast two full-length reviews of good quality. Print sources are usually the best ones per WP:NFSOURCES. TOI is acceptable, along with Asianet (which is originally published by Kannada Prabha) can also be considered. I believe film reviews are an easier route to notability than GNG. If properly scrutinized, many of the unreleased film articles wouldn't meet WP:NFF. Overall, I think its still borderline. -- Ab207 (talk) 08:01, 21 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Appreciate your trust; that being said, I haven't made statements without a suitable rational. And thank you for saying it's borderline - which is different than non-notable. I agree that it's not unreasonable to ask for full length reviews. My only worry is that it's difficult to figure reliability of sources like chitraloka and others since we don't have enough editors who would be able to read Kannada. This holds true for hundreds of other languages. I feel strongly towards notability in context of WP:BASIC considering there is regular print coverage about her through out years. 02:09, 22 September 2021 (UTC)

The actress is a known face in TV industry and commands fair fan following. The article caters to those people who admire the actress as a one stop source of relevant information about her. Information is also supported by verifiable links. Referred sources have significant coverage of the actress and are reliable, hence the deletion should not be proceeded and the notability tag should also be taken off, Dumbo shaan (talk) 07:33, 19 September 2021 (UTC)[]


The actress has played lead role in Gupta Brothers which was a popular show on Star Bharat and she is the lead of the show Mauka E Vardaat as permanent cop through out the show. She is the lead in telugu film Director , she is the lead in telugu film Hundred Crore, she has played a prominent role in Tenali Rama and like this many other shows she has done for Television.

  • Keep per GNG. I'm having difficulty assessing the Dutch language sourcing, but I'm inclined to keep based on the filmography and English sourcing such as Gay Times. Also, I fully acknowledge rumors should not be taken into account, but multiple sources have speculated that the subject is set to appear on the upcoming 'international all stars' season within the Drag Race franchise. I think we should work to expand and not delete this entry. Also, the nominator's one (hyphenated) word nomination is not really an assessment of sourcing or a well thought out analysis... ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:32, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[]
  • Keep. Standalone articles about the subject include Gay Times (which states "Janey has proven to be one of the most formidable contestants in Drag Race’s ever-expanding history") here; Elle (combined article with one other drag queen) here; Noordhollands Dagblad here; and Nieuw Volendam (from 2019) here. Then of course there's dozens of articles assessing her appearance on RPDR combined with coverage of other queens.

  • Delete Being in one critically disdained movie, a few guest appearances on some TV shows, and appearing on a reality TV show do not convince me that she meets WP:NACTOR, which requires significant roles in multiple notable films. The coverage I can find of her consists of listings on IMDB or summaries of show episodes, none of which constitute the significant, independent coverage required to meet WP:GNG.

  • Keep Passes GNG just scrolling through the first 10 pages of google books. Her role on Survivor has had lots of non-routine coverage, such as academic books analyzing Survivor in relation to the field of psychology (see google books). She was also widely cited even years after for being one of the few reality contestants who managed to continue working in the entertainment industry in multiple publications (again see google books). All of this to say, she had a meaningful cultural impact that went beyond what's typical for an entertainer/reality contestant which is played out by multiple independent refs with significant coverage.4meter4 (talk) 19:53, 27 September 2021 (UTC)[]

This article is about a non-notable "influencer" that was apparently accepted from AfC and then marked as reviewed at NPP, when it clearly was not in a state to be accepted, by NagalimNE. I tried searching for sources, as the ones in the article are merely trivial coverage, run-of-the-mill or otherwise entirely unreliable, and all that I could find was more run-of-the-mill coverage on minor incidents that do not establish notability per WP:BASIC.
