Former Neighbours star Dichen Lachman has a recurring role in the third season of Animal Kingdom.

She will portray Frankie, an edgy, free spirit who arrives at the Cody house with her partner, Billy (Denis Leary). They’ve been living in a car up and down the West Coast. While Frankie seems innocent, but she’s far more dangerous.

Lachman has enjoyed previous roles in Dollhouse, Altered Carbon, Supergirl, Agents of SHIELD, The 100 and Shameless.

Animal Kingdom by TNT is based on the 2010 Australian film by David Michôd, and features Ellen Barkin, who plays the matriarch of the Cody clan.

It airs in Australia on Netflix.

  1. Just watched her on Shamless, nice little but prominant recurring role she had appearing in the pancake diner with Emmy Russum.

    I remember her days on Neighbours in the last of the ‘good’ years well during mid-2000s, including the Paul Robinson twin son storyline and one of them being mentally unstable and trying to harm her, when Max Hoyland (Steph’s former husband and related to Izzy/Boyd/Summer) hit and killed him

  2. Dichen also did a reasonable job of her role on ‘The Last Ship’ confirming her abilities in the action genre, she also created quite a memorable scene in Altered Carbon when she was multi-cloned for a long nude fight scene with Martha Higareda.
