Helen Mirren[edit]

I'm suggesting nothing of the sort. The fact is that Mirren herself uses the term so that's why we do it. It's why there's a note there which says as much. Please don't revert it again. TheRetroGuy (talk) 16:17, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

You will also need to be aware that the term actor is not gender specific. Please see the Merriam-Webster dictionary definition here [1] as well as numerous other dictionaries and style guides. Wikipedia MoS guidelines here Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style#Gender-neutral_language are also to be taken into account. Your cooperation in not blanking the note on Mirren's article will be appreciated.
