During the 1990s, there were many new faces who were introduced to the TV screen. Many of these came from a modeling background before making it to the small screen. Amna Hussain has also been one such actress who made her way to TV as an actress after getting a start as a model.
After starting her acting career, Nadia made her presence felt in a number of good productions. Since she got her start during the time when Pakistan Television (PTV) had its monopoly, her earliest dramas were aired on PTV, although they were all private productions. She earned a lot of appreciation for her performance in the hit drama serial 'Mehndi', produced by Afreen Baig.
Later on, she acted in the drama serial 'Phir Youn Love Hua' which was directed by popular actress turned director Rubina Ashraf. After the introduction of private channels, she acted in the drama serial 'Jaisay Jantay Nahin' on ARY Digital. Amna was also the first morning show host on TV One.
