Harry granger 19:05, April 12, 2010 (UTC) When I open the source for Robyn Lane, I see the picture of a woman. So I think it must be called actress and not actor.


Actor is the generic name for both actors (male) and actresses (female). So saying she is an actor is technically correct.

Actually she is not even an actor. She's a martial artist who's been given a guest role in the film due to the high level of stunt work required. Same as Sam Parham and the other members of 3RUN. Jayce DarkmarkAvada KedavraCrucioImperio 13:50, May 26, 2010 (UTC)

to CoolDudeAl: O. k., you can say it is a generic name, but there is a problem. On the site is only the name. Can you say - for example - if "Tony" is a boy or a girl? Tony can derive from Anthony but also from Antonia. Do you know the "actor / actress" Robin Wright or the "actor / actress" Robin Williams? Are they man and woman or man and man or woman and woman? O. k., solution: Robin Wright is an actress, the first Kelly Capwell from the TV series Santa Barbara. Robin Williams is an actor, who played a woman. On the site of Robyn Lane is no gender. When I then read "actor" I think of a man.


to Jayce: I think you're right when you say she's not an actor. But artist is a neutral word. It also doesn't tell us the gender. Shouldn't we tell the gender when a name doesn't tell it? Harry granger 18:49, May 26, 2010 (UTC)


Does it matter that much? You can always just look at the picture like you did, if you really want to know the gender of the person. Technically we should have the picture on the page, and some info about the person, instead of just a one sentence line that is very generic, but someone would have to do that. If you'd like to, I'm sure no one would object.

Sorry, I don't know how to upload pictures, otherwise I would do. Harry granger 20:02, May 26, 2010 (UTC)
