At the point when she’s not aiding fund vaccine research or supporting the Black Lives Matter movement or creating a successful meme, the ruler of country music Dolly Parton is evidently saving lives.
Parton, who stars in the new Netflix holiday film, “Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square,” supposedly saved 9-year-old co-star, Talia Hill, by pulling her away from the way of an approaching vehicle.
“We were on set, and I was at the hot chocolate station, and they said ‘Go back to your beginning positions,'” Talia Hill said in an interview with Inside Edition. “So, there is a vehicle moving, and I was walking, and somebody grabbed me and pulled me back — and it was Dolly Parton.”
Talia Hill said that Parton advised her, “Well, I am an angel, you know,” a reference to her role in the Netflix film.
“I was in shock, she hugged me and shook me and said, ‘I saved your life!'” Hill said. “And my mom’s going, ‘Yes, you did, Dolly Parton. Yes, you did!'”
The moment added to a generally strange moment for Hill, and her siblings, Tristan and Tyson, who were completely cast in Netflix’s new holiday film “Christmas on the Square,” close by Parton, after an extreme audition process.
“Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square” debuted on Netflix a month ago. It follows a small town that is battling not to be ousted from its Scrooge-like antagonist, played by Christine Baranski, as expected for Christmas.
Parton’s character is an angel that intends to make all the difference. The film is likewise chockful of Christmas songs sung by Parton, herself.
The incident just adds to the mystique of Parton who obviously isn’t content with simply being the most award-winning female nation singer ever.
She’s fund-raised to help victims of wildfires. Her Imagination Library has sent out in excess of 85 million books to preschool-aged children. At the point when the pandemic hit, she basically read sleep time stories to kids.
As pundit Gene Seymour noted in a CNN piece recently: “Just let Dolly Parton rule the world already.”
