Hannah Alligood

Frankie

Hannah Alligood plays “Frankie,” Sam’s spirited and eccentric middle daughter.

At just thirteen years of age, Alligood has already captivated audiences with her extraordinary talent and presence on screen. Born in Birmingham, Alabama, Alligood discovered her love and aptitude for theatrics early on by participating in the local theater, as well as drama presentations at church and at school. Her acting career began at the age of 10 and within her first seven months of work, she landed a role on an episode of Powers, the PlayStation Network TV series. This was followed closely by her feature film debut in Paper Towns as "Young Margo Roth Spiegelman," opposite Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne.

At 12 years old, Alligood added two additional feature film credits to her résumé: Miracles from Heaven with Jennifer Garner and The Divergent Series: Allegiant with Shailene Woodley and Theo James. It was only natural that she would go on to be cast in a series regular role, joining the award-winning creative team of Pamela Adlon and Louis C.K. on Better Things.

When not on set, Alligood enjoys drawing, reading, dancing, singing and spending time with her friends and family. Her younger sister is her biggest fan.
