So the IMDB link should be fixed to only contain the actors name, or if that can't be done then get rid of the linkk completely. And I would also think that the link for the actors name for the local Sage search should also only contain the actors name, not the characters name. Perhaps this broke through the years and used to contain only the actors name but the SD guide data now also includes the character name.

Here is an example from Modern Family:

Sofía Vergara -- Gloria Delgado-Pritchett [imdb]
I'm pretty sure this has been this way for a very long time. SageTV doesn't store the character and the actor in 2 separate fields, and over time the convention has been to append them into a single field separating them with a double dash. I know when I deal with this I typially split on the "--" and then manage them as 2 fields.
