Credit a name change?
“Hey there, Backstage community!
“I made the decision to change my last name after three decades of performing and being cast as “Chrissy Hogue.” What, if anything, do I need to do on my résumé or acting sites to note this change? Also, I have one credit on IMDb that I've owned as “Chrissy Hogue” but cannot figure a way to update to my new name “Chrissy Bartels.” Any help or assistance is greatly appreciated. Please let me know if I can help in return!” —ChrissyBartels
How to spot a scam?
“How exactly do you know if a listing on Backstage or other casting sites are scams? for example, I was just approached by a group called Yawis Productions. Has anyone heard of them? They have a website but it seems a little sparse. Advice would be appreciated.” —AerialChick11
