Anne, the fiery and headstrong redhead, was the daughter of Walter and Bertha Shirley. After the death of her mother and her father’s subsequent departure, Anne led a troubled adolescence, bouncing from orphanage to orphanage and from one harsh family to another; until she was finally adopted by Mathew and Marilla Cuthbert when she was mistakenly left at the Avonlea train station on Prince Edward Island.

AFTER AN EXHAUSTIVE CROSS CANADA TALENT SEARCH, the hunt for a new Anne Shirley finally came to an end when 13 year-old Hannah was selected to reprise the role made famous by Megan Follows.

Hannah landed her first role at the age of nine in a film for warner Bros. Samantha — An American Girl Holiday (2004). She then played the part of Lori in the Hallmark movie of the week The Good Witch (2008). In addition, Hannah has lent her voice for many characters for popular animated show including Will And Dewitt.
In addition to her role as Young Anne Shirley in Anne of Green Gables — A New Beginning, Hannah can be seen guest starring in the episode entitled “Planets Aligned” in CTV’s Flashpoint (2008) as well as lending her voice to the cartoon series My Friend Rabbit (2007-2008).
