In a statement to Stan, Abe said: ‘Wolf Like Me is a very meaningful project for me, the stakes are extremely high but grounded by things we can all relate to.

‘I’m so excited to have Isla and Josh on board, and I know the audience will be surprised seeing them in a different way as these characters.’

In addition to Wolf Like Me, Abe’s previous projects include local productions Down Under and Little Monsters.

Isla was last seen in Curb Your Enthusiasm and the movie Godmothered.
