In 2001, she was awarded the "Logie" Australian Television Award for "Best New Female Talent." She was later appointed Junior Youth Ambassador for New South Wales, Australia, and in 2003 received the Centenary Medal for "Service to Australian Society and Acting" by the Governor General of Australia.

Sursok appeared in the feature film Aquamarine and guest-starred on the comedy series Rules of Engagement. She also shot a role in the independent feature Albino Farm for director Sean McEwen. In addition, she will soon appear opposite Harrison Ford and Sean Penn in the film Crossing Over.
