Remembering Richard Attenborough, best known as Santa Claus in Miracle on 34th Street

In our hearts, and memories, many of us shall always cherish actor Richard Attenborough in the 1994 re-make version of Miracle on 34th Street, as the beloved character, Kris Kingle, a kind jolly man, who brought such joy to children and grown-ups, alike. His legacy will forever live on in his films, and for Christmas Movie fans, he will always be the ideal Santa Claus.

Dylan McDermott and Mara Wilson, who starred with Richard Attenborough in the 1994 remake movie Miracle on 34th Street, expressed their thoughts on Twitter:

"Rest in peace Richard Attenborough. U were the best Santa ever."
- Dylan McDermott
(Brian Bedford, in Miracle on 34th Street)

"Sir Richard Attenborough was the only Santa Claus I ever believed in. A wonderful man. Still in shock right now. May he rest in peace."
-Mara Wilson
(Susan Walker, in Miracle on 34th Street)

Richard Attenborough leaves behind his wife, Sheila and their three children Jane, Michael, and Charlotte.

My heart felt condolences to the Attenborough family and friends.


  1. Sad to hear this news on "Santa". I enjoyed reading Mara's twitter comment. Very sweet.
