Alyvia Alyn Lind Is The Young Actress Who Played Dolly Parton In The Coat Of Many Colors Movies – Where Is She Now?

In December 2015, Dolly Parton released the Coat of Many Colors movie on NBC. The film tells the story of her childhood, and was inspired by her beloved song of the same title. The young actress who played Dolly Parton in the films was Alyvia Alyn Lind.
