Disney star Kelli Berglund is Willadeene Parton in the all-new holiday special “Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love.”
Known mostly for her starring role as “Bree Davenport” on Disney XD’s “Lab Rats: Elite Force,” Kelli Berglund will play Willadeene Parton in “Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love.” Willadeene is the oldest of the Parton children and like many from her generation tends to act as a second mother to her younger siblings. Kelli says Willadeene and her “Lab Rats” character Bree are similar in that they both tend to carry a certain amount of responsibility that’s beyond their years.
Kelli kindly agreed to answer a few questions about her role in the new film, how she developed her East Tennessee accent, her favorite Dolly Parton song and much more.
