Birth date[edit]

IMDb is not always the best source for this kind of thing so here's another source that backs up her date of birth: http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/soaps/s2/eastenders/news/a191094/enders-wadia-plans-double-celebration.html AnemoneProjectors (talk) 15:27, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

Birthdate update[edit]

Online sources seem to differ on whether Wadia was born in 1968 or 1969.Danish Ranger 04:37, 30 January 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Danish Ranger (talkcontribs)

1968 is correct:

None of the websites you've listed above are reliable sources for biographical statistics in biography articles. The Independent is, however, a very reliable source and I have restored it. -Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 18:28, 4 January 2015 (UTC)
Yes, and it indicates she was born in 1968, being published on 11 October 2008, before her 40th birthday on 18 December birthday that year. You need to show another source for 1969. Crisso (talk) 23:22, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
Ok, here is another Interview from The Daily Record that states "But EastEnders star Nina Wadia, 40, admits she isn't comfortable with the tag" and "She said: "It's nice to get some recognition for hard work. It boosts your confidence a bit." Nina was born in India in 1969, but said she has a connection to Scotland. "The school I went to in Bombay was called The Bombay Scottish Orphanage High School and was one of the few remaining schools run by Scots"" If there is an error in the article it appears to be the birth month/day as it is sourced to short soap gossip blurb from a questionable source.--Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 00:14, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
In that case should we not remove that source and date altogether and just have "born 1969"? Crisso (talk) 15:39, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
I think that would be the best option, and most inline with WP:DOB, as it does appear to be incorrect.--Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 22:47, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
  • If there continues to be differing but equally reliably sourced birth years, then including both years along with their corresponding sources is the most policy compliant way forward unless there is a strong consensus to include one specific date only, which will likely require an RfC.--Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 15:54, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
Do we no longer believe she was born on 18 December? AnemoneProjectors 17:33, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
Many sources, including her episode of The TV That Made Me state 1968. The sources that give her age are ambiguous as to whether she was born in 68 or 69. Jim Michael (talk) 00:07, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
But her birthdate is 18 December. It's in the first section of this talk page. I'm trying to establish if it's been removed from the article for a reason. There is a template that can be used if we know someone's age on a given date, however, one source published on 11 October 2008 states her age as 39, and another published on 29 April 2009 states her age as 40, and another states her birthday is 18 December, therefore 18 December 2008 would have been her 40th birthday meaning she was born on 18 December 1968. But because there are sources that state her birth year as 1969, we should just put 18 December with no year (or both). AnemoneProjectors 14:42, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
