Behind the Scenes of ‘The Santa Clauses’: Tim Allen’s Experience Working with His Daughter

The former “Home Improvement” star Tim Allen is opening up about what it was like to star with his 14 year-old daughter Elizabeth Allen-Dick on their show “The Santa Clauses.”

” It’s one of those moments that I’ll carry with me forever, ” Allen, 70, told the Weekly. “To see the professional that she’s turned into, [she] treats everybody well, shows up on time, does her job, works long hours, [with] no complaints. ”

“At times, I look over there and go, my kid is on this movie with me. I’m so grateful.”

Tim Allen’s wife Jane Hajduk got in on the action as well, as she accompanied their daughter to set. “It was a new experience for both of them, and they just worked their butts off,” Allen added. “It’s very impressive to watch.”

Last month, Allen-Dick discussed how much she’s learned from working with her father.

” I did have days where I would just struggle and be like, ‘ Oh, it’s not my day, I can’t get my lines.’ I feel like the only time [Tim Allen] would not know his lines is when he proposed an idea, he’d be like, ‘Oh, I think this is better.’ I don’t think he would get the script and be like, ‘Oh, I just don’t know my lines,’ ” she said.

When asked about what the best part is about working with his daughter, Allen replied, “They’re almost combined elements. She has a natural respect for the people who actually do all the work – writers, crew, everybody behind this, and it was natural that way. She showed up on time, did what she was told, she didn’t think of herself as being special because she was related to me, and she earned everything she had.
