For movie actors, when we add a photo, the actor is duplicated in the list of actors.

If we delete one of its duplicates, all copies of the actor are deleted.

After deletion, if we do "Add an Actor", to put the deleted actor back, it is created with duplicates plus an extra copy...

Example with the movie World War Z (https://thetvdb.com/movies/world-war-z) :

I added a photo for actress Sterling Jerins, this created two Sterling Jerins actors in the list.
I then deleted Sterling Jerins, so all the copies were erased.
I then add Sterling Jerins as a new actor.
There are now 3 times Sterling Jerins in the list, https://thetvdb.com/movies/world-war-z/people

Et ce problème est récurrent dans plusieurs films :
- https://thetvdb.com/movies/dark-skies/people
- https://thetvdb.com/movies/avengers-endgame/people
- https://thetvdb.com/movies/real-steel-2/people

This has been ticketed. We will look into it. I would refrain from adding actors at the moment till we resolve.

Okay, thank's :!:

Can you delete duplicates in the meantime ? As your colleague did the first time, @szsori :)
