When using the template, it is not necessary to delete any fields that are not being used. Most fields are optional; if no data is supplied, the row will simply not appear once the page is saved.


The name of the actor in plain text only. Logos and other graphics are to be avoided in this field in accordance with WP:ACCESS and WP:FAIR. Use an internal link or piped internal link to the main article about the artist. For help with internal links, see the Editing FAQ. This field is mandatory.


An image of the actor, sufficiently clear for display at 200 pixels' width. Set to only the image name, e.g. Example.png, not Image:Example.png or [[Image:Example.png|200px|abc]]. Images used should ideally be free images; that is, not subject to copyright restrictions. If no free image is available it may be possible to use a non-free image under a claim of fair use, provided the image meets Wikipedia's non-free content criteria (for more information see WP:NFCC and WP:NFC).


Alt text for the image, as per WP:ALT. This is for describing the image to people who cannot see the image, and typically should not be the same as the caption.

Image caption

Caption for the image to be displayed. Do not link years in the caption e.g. do not link [[2007]].

Types of releases

There are individual fields for the various types of releases (Films, television series, video games, music videos and stage performances). In each field place the number of each type that the artist has released. Use only numeric values in these fields.
