In this article we will see how we can get the list of movies in which actor has performed i.e an actor performs in various movies. IMDb has a database of almost every movie performed by verified actors. In order to get the list of all the movies performed by the actor we have to get the details of filmography of the actor

Syntax : results = ia.get_person_filmography(ID) Here ia is the IMDb object 

Argument : It takes Id as argument 

Return : It returns dictionary This method returns the complicated dictionary which is hard to read in order to get the titles of the movie we use results[‘data’][‘filmography’][0][‘actor’][index]

Below is the implementation 

Python3




# importing the module
import imdb
 
# creating instance of IMDb
ia = imdb.IMDb()
 
# person id
code = "1372788"
 
# printing person name
print(ia.get_person(code))
 
# getting information
actor_results = ia.get_person_filmography(code)
 
# printing movie name
for index in range(5):
    movie_name = actor_results['data']['filmography'][0]['actor'][index]
    print(movie_name)

Output :

Shahid Kapoor
Jersey Hindi Remake
Sachet Tandon: Bekhayali
Kabir Singh
The Insider's Watchlist
Akhil Sachdeva & Tulsi Kumar: Tera Ban Jaunga

Another example

# getting information
actor_results = ia.get_person_filmography(code)
 
# printing movie name
for index in range(5):
    movie_name = actor_results['data']['filmography'][0]['actor'][index]
