Hollywood ,California- The friends you make on the job can be lifelong and can lead to other jobs as well . Case in point, Laura Slade Wiggins known to the mass  audiences as Karen Jackson on “Shameless “will be appearing with  Rakefet Abergel who by chance also had a stint on the award winning television show .

Recently, Rakefet wrote and starred in a horror/thriller short film called Jax in Love, which she co-produced with executive producer & casting director Jory Weitz (Napoleon Dynamite).
