She also co-starred in Wendy Wasserstein's The Heidi Chronicles, playing Wendy's best friend, Susan. Two weeks before she finished her studies at LSU, Rappold auditioned for her first movie, and won a leading role. The film was the popular fantasy thriller, Warbirds, and Rappold was cast as Betsy Quigley, a WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilot) who crash lands on a Pacific Island during World War II, where flying dinosaurs are a reality. When Warbirds wrapped, Rappold started getting television roles, including the recurring role of Paige Royer on HBO's Treme and roles on Memphis Beat and Breakout Kings. In features, she booked Enemies Among Us, Barefoot and the box-office hit God's Not Dead. Based in New Orleans, Rappold's acting career has benefited strongly from the increased amount of production in the southeast United States. When she isn't acting, Rappold has started to sing (she's had five years of voice lessons), and she has plans to join a band at some point in the future.
