It has just been announced that the vivacious and immensely talented actress, Kelli Berglund, has officially joined the cast of “Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love.” How phenomenal is that?! According to Variety.com, which released the outstanding news, this is the sequel to “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors,” which aired last year. The sequel is set to begin production this July and will air later on this year.
Variety.com described Kelli Berglund’s character as follows, “Berglund will play Willadeene Parton, the oldest child of the family. Described as wise beyond her years, she has left school to help her Mama raise the ever-increasing brood of Parton children. She’s devoted her life to her mother and siblings, but she’s still a daddy’s girl at heart. Willadeene is very maternal, nurturing, and is her Mama’s and Dolly’s “Angel on Earth.”
“Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love” follows up on the incredible success from the first TV film on NBC. In this sequel, it focuses on a severe blizzard that threatens the Parton family’s Christmas celebration.
