There was very little “ho ho ho-ing” on the set of Disney+ Santa ClausIf one of the co-stars is to be believed.
Casey Wilson, who appeared with Tim Allen for the pilot episode of the series, criticized him in a recent conversation on his podcast. He claims that working with him was “literally the worst experience I’ve ever had with any co-star.”
“Tim Allen was such a b–h,” she said. Saturday night Live Star claimed that she did not immediately put Allen on the naughty list, saying that she “withheld this information” for more than a year after the series’ release. Why? A friend was a producer and her children “loved movies.”
The series was a sequel to Allen’s classic “Santa Claus” films. Wilson played “Adult Sarah” in the series, the adult version of the girl who delivered soy milk to Santa in the first film.
“So I’m in a scene. It’s just me and Tim Allen and I have to throw things at him, Wilson said. “I think he is a thief. So he’s coming down the chimney, apparently as Santa, and I wake up thinking there’s an intruder, basically like a home invasion scene. So I’m throwing things at him.
,[He] Goes to the producer who is standing four feet away from me and goes, and I hear him, he says, ‘You have to tell him to stop stepping on my lines.’ The producer turns to me with a look of fear on his face and he has to walk one foot toward me and he says, ‘Um, Tim is going to ask you to stop stepping on his lines.'”
That was just the beginning.
Wilson also alleged that Allen was “very rude” after filming his scenes, and that “everyone was walking on eggshells around him” and “just seemed frantic.”
“It’s the end, and Tim Allen says, ‘Going!’ Takes his Santa cape, picks it up and drops it on the floor and walks out,” Wilson said. “And they hustle in his stand-in. Lovely guy, who was great to act against. People are running to get his velvet Santa coat.
She added, “He’s a b–h. And this is the best…I won’t say who said it. It was someone I didn’t know, probably in the crew. [He or she] The winds blow past me and just say, ‘You’re looking at him on a good day.’
Allen has not responded to the allegations.
