The rule says you can do it when you take an action which increases fame. Does it also count for this bonus?

That's how I play it, it is an action that increases fame so it makes sense.

When something triggers that little white star icon, you're able to use your influence to increase the fame bonus.

Interesting. From the player board, we've always played that you just get the Meeple count added; no influence can be spent.

Rulebook (pg 13);

"Influence may be spent during the game in the following situations:
- A Player takes a Location Action during a Kicked-Out Action
- A Player takes the Promotion Action from Media Center
- A Player uses money to buy a Work of Art, hire Assistants or make an offer in the International Market
- A Player performs an action which increases the Fame of an Artist"

Thanks! That's a game changer in a few games I've played.

So the action performed doesn't need to increase directly the fame(like Promote artist or Buy&Exhibit a woa).
Only in these 2 sections the rules say influence may be used to gain fame.

Everything that triggers increasing fame enables player to spend influence, right?
