Marg Helgenberger, whose CSI and China Beach characters were both mothers to a daughter, is being given her third TV daughter. In her midseason CBS drama IntelligenceHelgenberger’s Lillian will try to connect with her child, Rebecca, played by Shameless actress Laura Wiggins. (Wiggins plays Karen, the sexually adventurous daughter of Joan Cusack’s Sheila, on the Showtime series).    

“For some reason I always have daughters,” Helgenberger says. “We just finished shooting the episode with Rebecca, who is the polar opposite of my character.”  

Helgenberger believes Wiggins could recur. “I don’t know how much they plan on having her come back,” Helgenberger says, “but she’s a lovely little actress and I enjoyed working with her quite a bit.”
