Hollywood Insider on Josephine Arendsen in My Best Friend Anne Frank

Hannah is played by Josephine Arendsen, who, at only 16, gives an incredible performance. She plays Hannah so believably, which is a feat because Hannah’s situation is unthinkable to most. She excels in playing an innocent child who doesn’t yet understand the world, let alone the war that she’s living through. As the film progresses she gives an equally powerful performance as a broken kid, stripped of innocence and forced to grow up instantly.
