'Harry Potter' actress Emma Watson needs a birth year, to distinguish her from older British actress Emma Vansittart, whose common name is actually also Emma Watson (her maiden name).

Emma Watson (1990), 'Harry Potter', 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower', 'Beauty and the Beast', 'The Bling Ring'
- http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0914612/
- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emma_Watson
- http://www.biography.com/people/emma-watson-20660247

Emma Watson (1957), 'Casualty', 'Executive Stress', 'Florence Nightingale', 'To Be the Best', 'Johnny English Reborn'
- http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0914611/
- http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/celebritynews/9218666/Look-out-The-original-Emma-Watson-stages-a-comeback.html
- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moray_Watson (page for her father listing her birth year)

Note that the latter has one credit in the database as Emma Vansittart ('Johnny English Reborn'), but at least four credits ('Casualty', 'Executive Stress', 'Florence Nightingale', 'To Be the Best') as Emma Watson, making that her common name for our purposes.

Thanks to AiAustria for additional help on this one!

Unfortunately I can't find any other information to back up her birth year.

Nicole Robinson (????) – The Neon Demon

No data available.

It is a bit barebones, so any help would be appreciated.

Working on a contribution for Volume Three of the Vitaphone Shorts on Warner's Archive collection, I've encountered an "Edith Evans" who definitely is NOT the well-known British actress Dame Edith Evans.  I need to supply a birth year for her, and all I can find is at the following link: http://www.jazzage1920s.com/raymayer/raymayer.php which gives her birth year as 1898.  Her 1898 birthdate is also listed at IMDB, but we're not allowed to use that as a resource.  Dame Edith Evans' birth year is listed at several sites such as https://www.britannica.com/biography/Edith-Evans as 1888.  Also on http://www.biography.com/people/edith-evans-9289641#!.  As there is more documentation for her, I'm tempted to add her birth year and leave my new "Edith Evans" without a birth year, as the documentation for the latter is so sparse.

Any thoughts?

We are discouraged to provide the IMDB as single source. As a supporting source the IMDB is pretty often used around here. - And, not to forget, the quality of IMDB birth years inreased very well over the last years...

Further more, from the technical standpoint it is easier to change a birth year later on, than to assign a new one: to assign a birth to a person who does not have assigned one, you have to check who the person is -  changing one birth year to another does not need any checking...

Overall I only hesitate to list a poorly documented birth year, if it is to be doubted (different source list different BYs; same BYs for different persons; etc.).

Therefore I'd suggest to document (and assign) both the found birth years (including the IMDB as source).
