Dolly Parton 'saved' Christmas on the Square actress, 9, from getting crushed by car in 'near-death' accident on set

DOLLY Parton "saved" a nine-year-old actress from getting crushed by a vehicle on set of the new Netflix movie Christmas on the Square.

The young actress, Talia Hill, revealed the country icon saved her from a potentially bad accident during a recent interview.

While speaking to Inside Edition, the child star said: "We were on set, and I was at the hot chocolate station, and they said go back to your beginning positions.

“So there was a vehicle moving, and I was walking, and then somebody grabbed me and pulled me back, and I looked up and it was Dolly Parton.”

Talia admitted that she was "in shock" when she realized it was the 74-year-old actress that saved her.

After the incident, Dolly told Talia: "‘Well, I am an angel, you know,’ cause she plays an angel in the movie.”

Talia continued to detail the scary moment, adding that both she and her mom were grateful to the Jolene singer.

She added: “[Dolly] hugged me and shook me and said, ‘I saved your life.'

“And my mom was crying, like, ‘Yes you did, Dolly Parton, yes you did.’”

Dolly stars in the Netflix film as the character appropriately named Angel, while Christine Baranski plays Regina Fuller.

The official synopsis for the movie, which debuted on Netflix on November 22, reads: “A rich and nasty woman, Regina Fuller, returns to her small hometown after her father’s death to evict everyone and sell the land to a mall developer – right before Christmas.

"However, after listening to stories of the local townsfolk, reconnecting with an old love, and accepting the guidance of an actual angel, Regina starts to have a change of heart.

"This is the story about family, love, and how a small town’s Christmas spirit can warm even the coldest of hearts."

Fans took to Twitter to praise the Christmas movie after it premiered.

One fan wrote: "Maybe it’s the wine but I’m 10 minutes into Dolly Parton’s new movie on Netflix and I’m crying and missing musical theatre."

Someone else wrote: "Watching Dolly Parton's Christmas on the square on Netflix and I'm two minutes in and crying already… this does not bode well…"

A third gushed: "I’m ugly crying. Literally sobbing. What a movie! 'Grief is Just Love with Nowhere to Go.' I’m pretty sure Dolly Parton just shattered my heart."

Meanwhile, a fourth viewer exclaimed: "Dang it Dolly! Making me sob with the Christmas on the Square movie."
