She was cast as Summer Hoyland on Neighbours from 2002 to 2005 before reducing her role to a recurring one to concentrate on her school work and eventually leaving the series in 2007. In October 2009 it was announced the character of Summer Hoyland was being written back into Neighbours, though the role had been recast for unknown reasons.[1] Siketa left "The Saddle Club" after Season 1 due to landing her role on Neighbours, and she was replaced by the late Jessie Jacobs.[2]
