Sariah Saibu, who starred in award-winning short film Beautiful They in 2021, died on January 30. The young actress has a lead role in the coming-of-age movie and also worked as a model and dancer.

The star’s aunt Cassandra Colvin wrote a tribute to the actress, which read: “This morning we lost our darling Sariah.

“I am struggling to find the words to express the grief that I and her family are feeling at this time.

“RIP beautiful – all our love always.”

A fundraising page set up for Sariah’s funeral also described the actress as “the Queen, the Karaoke King, the Star, and the Icon”.

The fundraiser is helping to cover the cost of two memorials for the actress, the first of which will be held in Walyalup/Fremantle and the second of which will take place in Darwin/Garramilla.

The description on the page, which has already raised over $5,401, read: “The Princess of not only Perth, but Darwin.

“The protagonist of our lives and gem of our hearts,” it continued.

“Sariah made everlasting impressions on her community, which has been felt and greatly appreciated by her family and closest friends.

“Every Princess deserves an extra, sassy and heartfelt celebration of life.

“We all understand there are extensive costs in these kinds of things.

“If you’d like to continue to support Sariah’s family during this time, and have financial capacity, please donate towards this celebration of her life.”

In the comments section, Sariah’s friends and loved ones remembered the actress fondly as they shared donations.
