Dolly Parton works 9 to 5 and still has time to be a hero.

While filming her new holiday film Christmas on the Square, the country legend and actress came to the rescue of her nine-year-old co-star Tahlia Hill, who was almost run over by a vehicle.

Speaking to Inside Edition, Tahlia recalled grabbing a hot chocolate on the set of the Netflix movie when she was abruptly pulled back by the 74-year-old.

“We were on set and I was at the hot chocolate station and they said to go back to your beginning positions,” Tahlia began. “So there is a vehicle moving and I was walking and somebody grabbed me, pulled me back, and I looked up and it was Dolly Parton, and I was like surprised.

“She’s like, ‘Well, I am an angel, you know’ because she plays an angel in the movie. I was in shock. She hugged me and shook me and said, ‘I saved your life!'”

Tahlia is featured in the film alongside her two brothers Tristan, 16, and Tyson, 13, who were just as starstruck by the country singer as their sister.

“When you think of Dolly Parton, you are just like, ‘It is Dolly Parton.’ But when you actually see her, you are like, ‘Wow, it’s Dolly Parton,'” Tristan said. “Being in her presence lifts you. She is so amazing.”
