Lower School student Selah Jones '28 will appear in a Netflix original holiday movie musical.
Dolly Parton's Christmas on the Square stars Dolly Parton, Christine Baranski, Treat Williams, Jenifer Lewis, and Jeanine Mason. The movie follows Baranski's character, a wealthy woman who “returns to her small hometown after her father’s death to evict everyone and sell the land to a mall developer—right before Christmas.”
Selah plays Violet in the film, which premieres Sunday, November 22 on Netflix.
Previously, Selah had a role in the 2016 hit movie Hidden Figures, playing Carolyn Marie Jackson, the daughter of Janelle Monáe's character, mathematician and aerospace engineer Mary Jackson.
