Sharifah Amani Career
She became famous for portraying the character Orked in Yasmin Ahmad’s Orked trilogy. The first two films that she took part in are Sepet and Gubra.

She previously played the supporting role as a sexually abused teenager in the film Gol & Gincu.
She co-stars in the Malaysian film, Cinta, where she is one of ten actors playing 5 different couples portraying different situations based on the theme of love and relationships. Her mother co-stars with her in this movie. In the Cantonese Malaysian horror movie, Possessed, she plays a supporting role as Fara, the assistant and close friend of a Chinese girl, Lisu, who migrated to Malaysia to make it big as a singer. Unfortunately, Lisu is brutally murdered and Fara, as the only witness of the murder, goes insane and is committed to a mental asylum.
She is the main cast in Muallaf, where she acts with Sharifah Aleysha, another one of her younger sisters. This film is also directed by Yasmin Ahmad. To fulfill her role in the movie, she shaved her head bald because in one of the scenes in the movie her character’s head is shaved by the father for being too ‘wild’.
Following the relative success of Gol & Gincu in the supporting role as a sexually abused teenager, she reprised this role later in several guest appearances in the TV series based on the movie (Gol & Gincu The Series), as originally broadcast in 2006 on the Malaysian TV channel, 8TV. She also hosted a make-over TV show (sponsored by Revlon Silky Girl) on NTV7 with her elder sister, Sharifah Aleya in 2006.
In March 2007, TV3 (Malaysia) has started broadcasting the dramedy series Emil Emilda in their Samarinda timeslot, starring Sharifah Amani as the lead role of Emilda. She stars in title role of Emilda, a bespectacled geeky filing clerk working in a fictitious TV station, where she catches the attention of the CEO due to her hard-working nature and passion for the broadcasting industry. The CEO finds out his long-lost son, Emil/Boboi who has been missing following a car accident 20 years ago has been sighted. En route to follow up on the information regarding his son, he dies when his private helicopter crashes. It is then revealed in his will that he has chosen Emilda to be his temporary replacement as CEO until his son can be located to be his rightful heir.

Showbiz: Sharifah Amani supports investigations into alleged Finas corruption
Updated On: 24th June 2018
KUALA LUMPUR: Award-winning actress Sharifah Amani thanks Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo for his swift action calling for investigations into alleged corruption at the National Film Development Corporation (Finas).
“May justice prevail. Thank you, sir,” tweeted Amani last Tuesday.
Gobind recently said his Ministry would not compromise nor protect anyone should there be elements of corruption found in any agency under its purview.
He confirmed that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) had raided Finas on June 7, and this had to do with several allocations the corporation had received.
Amani’s message of support to the Minister was given the thumbs-up by Netizens, including filmmaker Rewan Ishak.
Rewan tweeted: “Previous Ministers did nothing when we filmmakers made noise about alleged abuses in the corporation.
“Films did not do well despite changes in its directors-general.
“Now Gobind is Minister and within 90 days, the MACC is investigating Finas. Syabas!
“I hope no more ex-contractors in polo shirts and dark glasses, with support letters from Wakil Rakyat, get money from the filmmakers’ fund.”
An anonymous Netizen tweeted: “Many lousy films have been produced despite the fund. I strongly believe movies help the development of society, enough of low class, insulting entertainment. We want a world class new Malaysia!”
The Netizen also called on Malaysians to reactivate the #AuditFinas hashtag, to “weed out corrupt people who take away opportunities from genuine filmmakers”.
Gobind explained that the MACC would look at the manner in which allocations to Finas were used, and added that corruption weakened competition for the industry’s growth.
Meanwhile, Finas director-general Datuk Fauzi Ayob said the corporation would not compromise with individuals deemed to have been involved in leakage of funds.
