What's in a name?

  • Toni Brooks

    Actor

    I've had a lot of unregistered viewers in the last couple of weeks. I followed some of the links and found that there is an American hardcore porn star with my name featured on IMDB! Came as a bit of a shock and am really hoping people don't think I'm one and the same. Thing is, I don't really want to change my name again!

    Oh Toni, I'm sorry but that made me chuckle! I really wouldn't worry about it, I'm pretty sure that most casting directors won't be mixing you up with a hard-core porno actress. There's bound to be other people with the same name somewhere in the world, my namesake works for the US government!!

    I'm the same, but the American Nathan Head isn't a porn star- he's a top singer! lol

    ha, I'm the same, I have been getting alot of views from all over the world with the google search criteria "Leigh Livingstone Nude" - I've never done any nude scenes.

    When I investigated, she's a porn star!

    God!! I'm glad it's not just me! I was wondering what all these "Unregistered Users" were all about. I too have a couple listed that are looking up Shannon Thompson nude. Dirty b*****s!!!

    Happy Friday!

    Phew, so glad I'm not the only one as well. One thing that made me laugh though was a search with the words: small actress big nose. WELL! Of course it came up as I did a short for a company called Big Nose :-))

    Mind you, my ex used to say that when I laughed, my nose spread all over my face - one reason why he's an ex :-))

    Aww,

    The only other people with my name are a local councillor and a police seargent! Obviously Sharon Cannings is a name which commands respect!

    I never knew that I had a web address where people could send me fanmail! Has everyone else in Spotlight got one of those? What fun!

    Oh I'm so glad I'm not the only one who got freaked out. Someone searched for 'Cheska Moon nude body shots' - scares me because as far as I know I'm the only Cheska Moon and I haven't got any nude shots!!x

    Actor

    I changed my name recently and have to confess, it took me weeks to make my mind up! I still feel like a little bit of my identity has been robbed but I'm now starting to enjoy being unique again!

    My name sake wasn't a porn star though - whilst there was another actor with the same name but different spelling, a famous American Footballer was the source of the traffic from other websites!

    Hmmm...I think I might try it the other way around and change my name to a Porn Star's.

    Hey, as 'they' say, there's no bad publicity!

    I know what you mean Kris - even though Toni is what people call me (short for Antoinette) and Brooks is still a family name, it does seem strange but am getting used to it.

    There is also some technical bod called Jonathan Redmond in the states who has some IMDB entries for some behind the scenes stuff he did or whatever. You can tell I didn't read it with that much interest.

    There is also a famous author with my real name (Jonathan Carroll) and a fairly well known newspaper columnist (Jon Carroll) somewhere in the USA west coast.
