Actor backdrop not reloaded

4.6.7.0

If from any item Detail view an actor is selected, backdrop of selected item is shown on Actor page; selecting See All on either Movies or Shows to list all and subsequent Back to Actor page causes background to remain single-color and item backdrop is not reloaded. 

Same behaviour observed on 4.7+ beta.

Pretty sure it has always been this way.

Minus a static person backdrop you end up with theme/no backdrop as click back/refresh loses previous "withBackdrop" inherited item backdrop.

Well, maybe it should "remember" where it came from - or just place a random backdrop from any item person starrs in, same as AndroidTV app does it. Plain grey background is unappealing.

yeah I believe it should remember where it came from ...the same way it works if you enter an actors profile from Movie A, then select Movie B from actors other movies, go back, Movie B backdrop is retained.

Yeah, but that's different scenario, as it is again inheriting backdrop from previous item/single level (Movie B), same as it is inheriting it when you originally selected actor (Movie A). Which I reckon is actually a case that also occurs from See All, inheriting no backdrop, as All Movies/Shows page has none. Hence suggestion for random if "remembering" 2 levels prior (as it is what is needed) ain't feasible.

I think this one is probably unlikely to change.
