The Santa Clause films are Christmas classics and we can't imagine Christmas without them, even if it is hard to believe that the first one is now over two decades old! Charlie is only eight in the first film, but what does he look like today? 

Santa Clause is a cult Christmas classic and we'll it certainly won't be missing from our Christmas viewing list this year.

Santa Clause falls from Scott's roof, while his son Charlie is visiting him. Santa Clause vanishes mysteriously however, only leaving his clothes and a note behind. The note states that whoever puts on his coat will automatically become the new Santa Clause. Scott decides to try the coat on for size, which is the beginning of a fabulous adventure to the the North Pole for Scott and his son Charlie...

Santa Clause is played by Home Improvement star Tim Allen (65). Most people will know what he looks like today as he is still a highly successful actor and comedian!

Charlie is played by Eric Lloyd (32). In the first film he is still a little boy, in the second and third films, which were released in 2002 and 2006 respectively, he is a teenager. 

Charlie is now a grown-up and we would never have recognised him! Eric still works as an actor and last appeared in the made-for-TV movie Weedland and the 2018 film The Onyx of Wall Street. He is also a member of the band Radiomason.
