Frozen star Kristen Bell has delighted a young cancer patient by reprising her role as Princess Anna to record a special voicemail message for the fan.

The actress decided to surprise six-year-old Avery Huffman with the recorded call after learning the girl had been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour, called diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), in June.

Bell reached out to the Huffmans through a mutual friend and got back into character to share a surprise honour with little Avery.

In the message, the mother-of-two praises Avery for being “so brave” and names her an honorary Princess of Arendelle. She ends the call by claiming she had to leave to “go build a snowman with Olaf”.

Avery’s dad, Brandon, has since shared video footage of his daughter listening to the voicemail on his blog.
