Acker’s first American film appearance was in the John Boorman cult action film Point Blank starring John Vernon and Lee Marvin.
From that point, she appeared in film and television roles in Canada and the United States. Sharon guest-starred in the Star Trek episode “The Mark of Gideon” as Odona, a young woman who chooses to sacrifice herself by introducing disease to her overpopulated planet.
In 1976–77 she portrayed Helen Walling in the prime-time drama Executive Suite. Acker starred in two roles in two episodes of The Rockford Files in 1978 and 1979.
