Tim Allen Calls Acting With Daughter ‘The Most Amazing Experience’

By Movieguide® Contributor

It looks like acting runs in the Allen family Tim Allen recently spoke about what it’s been like working with his daughter, Elizabeth Allen-Dick, on THE SANTA CLAUSES. 

THE SANTA CLAUSES is part of Allen’s beloved THE SANTA CLAUSE franchise. This latest installment — a 6-episode miniseries — will show Allen’s Santa search for a successor, as well as plan a move for his family from the North Pole to Chicago. 

“It’s difficult to believe, but [Allen-Dick’s part] had very little to do with me,” Allen said of his daughter’s starring role. “I wanted to put my youngest daughter as an elf, just so she’d see herself in a movie. But as she was reading for that, she read so well that they said, ‘’We’d like to read her for more of a part.’ I said, ‘Whatever you want to do. I want nothing to do with it. I don’t want to pitch my daughter for a part in the movie.’

“But she ended up moving to the high ranks,” the actor laughed. “They loved how she read, loved it so much, because she’s playing a 13-year-old girl and she is 13. They ended up casting her as Santa’s daughter. It was a surprise but it became the most amazing experience.”

This is Allen-Dick’s first acting role, but her dad had a very good explanation as to why she took to it like a natural. 

“The line kept coming back to me, ‘Has she ever done this before?’ And I said, ‘No,’” he explained. “But she’s read scripts with me all the time. We got to play all the time as a comedian. I’m that way around the house. She’s able to take a line, make it her own, add value to it and be honest about it. And it was an amazing experience.”

Movieguide® previously reported on the production of THE SANTA CLAUSES:

Disney’s D23 event last week gave fans a look at what they can expect from the studio’s upcoming movies and shows, including the first trailer for THE SANTA CLAUSES. 

This latest installment in the SANTA CLAUSE franchise follows Scott Calvin (a.k.a. Santa Clause), played by Tim Allen, as he looks for someone to take over his holiday duties so he can enjoy some time off. 

Allen isn’t the only original cast member returning. David Krumholtz, who plays the head elf Bernard, will also appear in THE SANTA CLAUSES. 

The cast also includes Elizabeth Mitchell, Kal Penn and Eric Lloyd. Allen’s daughter, Elizabeth Allen-Dick, will also be joining the cast. 

The first two episodes of The Santa Clauses premiere Nov. 16 on Disney+
