From Dublin to Hollywood, the Multitalented Actress Sets Her Sights on International Stardom
In the glitzy world of Hollywood and global cinema, Sarimah Ibrahim emerges as a multifaceted force, ready to leave an indelible mark on the industry. With a repertoire of a dozen film and TV roles already to her credit, this Dublin-born sensation is poised to follow in the footsteps of Malaysian luminaries like Michelle Yeoh and Henry Golding.
The illustrious Michelle Yeoh, a trailblazing actress, made history as the first Asian star to clinch the Best Actress Oscar for her extraordinary performance in “Everything Everywhere All at Once.” Undoubtedly, Yeoh’s achievements placed Malaysia on the global cinematic map. Now, Sarimah Ibrahim, an Irish-born Malaysian actor, broadcaster, and entrepreneur, is gearing up to make her mark in both the UK and Hollywood.
Guiding her on this exciting journey is none other than Gerry Grennell, the renowned Irish-born acting coach whose clientele boasts some of the world’s best talent, including Tom Cruise, Meryl Streep, and Anne Hathaway. Sarimah’s determination and passion for the craft of acting have led her to train under distinguished instructors like Mel Churcher, who coached Michelle Yeoh. She has also received invaluable insights from Joseph Pearlman and The Lee Strasberg Institute.
Sarimah’s accolades are as diverse as her skill set. Breaking barriers, she became the first-ever female host on The Disney Channel Asia and was chosen as the inaugural presenter for The Biggest Loser Asia. Fluent in both English and Malay, with an impressive range of accents including general American, English, Irish, and Australian, Sarimah is a true global performer.
Beyond the glamour of the entertainment industry, Sarimah is a black belt in Karate, an advanced scuba diver, and a certified Pilates Stott instructor. Her commitment to education is evident in her possession of an Associate degree in Psychology and certification as an English TESOL teacher.
Born in Dublin, Ireland, Sarimah proudly holds an Irish passport and considers Dublin, London, and Kuala Lumpur her home. Her rich cultural tapestry, with a mother from Kilkenny, Ireland, and a father from Johor, Malaysia, has profoundly influenced her artistic journey, making her a unique and powerful force in the global entertainment landscape.
As Sarimah Ibrahim continues to rise, her story becomes a testament to the boundless possibilities that come with talent, determination, and a passion for one’s craft. Watch out, Hollywood.
