Python IMDbPY – Getting list of movies performed by the actor

  • Last Updated : 08 May, 2020

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 almst 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




# 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




# importing the module
import imdb
  
# creating instance of IMDb
ia = imdb.IMDb()
  
# person id
code = "0001098"
  
# 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 :

Rodney Dangerfield
Angels with Angles
Still Standing
Back by Midnight
Phil of the Future
The Electric Piper
