Mara Wilson Shares Her Best Memories From ‘Miracle on 34th Street’
There are so many Christmas films to choose from, but by far one of the best is Miracle on 34th Street. Its star, Mara Wilson, rose to fame in the 1990s but has since taken a backseat from the limelight.
Recently she opened up to Entertainment Weekly about some of her favorite memories filming the beloved classic.
“On set, anything that I got to do with Dylan McDermott and Elizabeth Perkins [was my favorite],” she explained. “They were just lovely. In particular, the dinner table scene during Thanksgiving was really fun. Dylan was always making ridiculous jokes, and in one of them he was teasing me about how I always wanted to go to lunch. He said, ‘Let me tell you a story about a little girl who was always asking what time it was because she wanted to go to lunch.’”
She added, “And Sir Richard [Attenborough] was just lovely, too. He was so fun, and he really did feel like Santa Claus to me. He was so kind.”
