Kristen Bell Saves Co-Stars’ Families
Kristen Bell has shown that not even a hurricane can get her down.
The star, best known for her role in hit TV series “Veronica Mars” and for voicing Anna in “Frozen,” has been helping people in need during Hurricane Irma.
The category five storm made landfall in Florida on Saturday, forcing thousands to evacuate or take shelter. Bell was in Florida shooting her latest film when she was stranded by the hurricane.
Her “Frozen” co-star, Josh Gad, voice of “Olaf” in the film, posted on Instagram that Bell had saved his entire family.
“So @kristenanniebell literally saved my parents and my entire family tonight from #hurricaneirma [sic],” Gad posted, alongside a selfie Bell took with his parents.
According to Gad’s post, Bell got his family a hotel room further inland and out of danger.
On Saturday afternoon, another of Bell’s co-stars, Jennifer Carpenter, also posted about Bell’s heroic efforts.
Carpenter, best known for playing Deb in “Dexter” and who starred in 2002 film, “People Are Dead” with Bell, posted a photo of her grandmother and aunt on Twitter.
Carpenter captioned it: “Gma&aunt were ready2 wear helmets N closet under eye of #HurricanIrma til @IMKristenBell found them a way out [sic]!!”
Carpenter didn’t go into exact details of how Bell had helped her family.
Bell also left the safety of her Walt Disney Resorts hotel to lift the spirits of others stranded by the hurricane.
On Saturday she entertained children and their parents at a local middle school being used as a shelter. A video of Bell performing songs from “Frozen” was posted on the school’s Facebook page.
“I hope maybe some of these songs are running through your head the rest of the day and will take your mind off of it,” she told the audience.
