Frankie played the role of Ula Levi on the top-rating series for four years between 2010-2014.
In 2015, Frankie guest starred as a troubled young prison inmate in the award-winning Australian television drama series WENTWORTH. She also played the lead role of Ilisa in New Zealand feature film ONE THOUSAND ROPES, an emotional story about a Samoan father reconnecting with his daughter.
