Emilfork was born in San Felipe, Chile after his Jewish socialist parents from Kiev  fled a pogrom in Odessa. At age 25, he left Chile and settled in France, because, according to his friend Alejandro Jodorowsky, he didn't feel comfortable being a homosexual man in Chile ()().
Emilfork's face was out of the norm and had made him a choice character actor for films such as The City of Lost Children (1995). He specialized in roles of villains. Previously he had played in The Devil's Nightmare (1971) and Fellini's Casanova (1976), in Roman Polanski's Pirates (1986) and in Taxandria (1994).
Emilfork's voice and accent when speaking French were extremely striking and unique.
