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.
