Better Things

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

At just 16 years old, Alligood has already captivated audiences with her extraordinary talent and onscreen presence. 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 arts by participating in local community musical theater, dance and drama presentations. 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 of the bestselling novel by award-winning author John Green. The coming-of-age drama mystery went on to win the 2015 Teen Choice Awards Movie of the Summer.

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

Alligood’s next big break happened in 2016 when she was cast as “Frankie” in FX’s award-winning comedy series Better Things, joining Emmy®-winning actress, writer, producer, director and showrunner Pamela Adlon.

In 2018, Alligood played "Olivia" alongside award-winning actress Jorja Fox in David Hudgins' and Carol Mendelsohn's CBS drama pilot Chiefs.

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