Joining the freshmen were several actors who returned from previous “Santa Clause” sojourns, including Elizabeth Mitchell as Mrs Claus, Judge Reinhold as psychobabbler Dr Neil Miller, and Wendy Crewson as his wife, Laura. Also returning were Spencer Breslin as trusty elf Curtis, Eric Lloyd as Charlie Calvin and Liliana Mumy as Lucy Miller.
“It really does feel like a big family reunion,” says Elizabeth Mitchell. “It was great to see everybody and to hear what’s happening in their lives.”
Mitchell had her own personal news to share – she gave birth to her first child six weeks before shooting began. It wasn’t a big stretch, therefore, for Mitchell to return to the North Pole as an expectant Mrs Claus.
“It felt great to come back after having the baby and to get to wear big clothes,” says Mitchell. “I was really happy.”
“It was a happy set,” says Elizabeth Mitchell. “The kids in their elf ears were just adorable. Tim and Marty were hilarious. It was really fun.”
