Hannah Alligood plays “Frankie,” Sam’s brilliant, spirited and deeply rebellious middle daughter, who is constantly challenging the status quo and pushing Sam’s buttons.

At just 15 years old, Alligood has already captivated audiences with her extraordinary talent and presence on screen. She has been playing roles in feature film and TV series consistently from the age of 10.

Very early in her life, Alligood discovered her love and aptitude for the theatrics by participating in musical theater, dance and drama presentations in her local community. Her acting career began in 2014 when she landed a role on an episode of PlayStation Network's action drama series Powers. That was followed closely by her feature film debut playing the role of “Young Margo Roth Spiegelman” in Paper Towns, an adaptation from the bestselling novel by award-winning author John Green. The coming-of-age drama mystery went on to win the 2015 Teen Choice Awards "Choice Summer Movie" Award.

At 12 years old, Alligood played the role of “Haley” in the family drama Miracles from Heaven, starring Jennifer Garner. The film would go on to win the 2016 Teen Choice Awards "Choice Movie: Drama” Award. Also during that time Alligood played a role in The Divergent Series: Allegiant, alongside Shailene Woodley and Theo James.

Most recently, Alligood played the role of “Olivia” alongside award-winning actress Jorja Fox in David Hudgins' and Carol Mendelsohn's 2018 CBS drama pilot Chiefs.

When not on set, Alligood enjoys drawing, reading, dancing, singing and spending time with her friends and family.
