Keep an Eye out for Newcomer Athena Akers on Dolly Parton's 'Heartstrings'


Dolly Parton’s new Netflix show, Heartstrings, is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. Each of the eight Season 1 episodes is based on a song from the 73-year-old’s extensive body of work and features a different cast. 

There is, however, one actress who pops up more than once throughout the anthology — and she’s not the type of girl who easily blends into the background. Here’s what we know about up-and-comer Athena Akers.

Athena Akers appears in four episodes of Heartstrings.

The brunette beauty is listed as a wedding guest in "Two Doors Down," a dance hall patron in "Sugar Hill," a western town girl in "JJ Sneed," and a festival patron/roller coaster rider in "Jolene."
