There are primarily 2 different types of Santa Claus actors.
- Actors who play Santa Claus.
- Santa Clauses who are actors.
Ed Asner, Kurt Russell, Edmund Gwenn, etc. are examples of actors who play Santa.
I’m an example of a Santa Claus who also acts.
After many years of being a “Santa Claus Portrayal Artist” I tried my hand at being an actor who specializes in play Santa Claus, first in TV & Internet commercials and later in TV shows & movies.
Now, having appeared as Santa Claus in dozens of local, regional & national commercials, TV shows & movies, I’m comfortable calling myself an actor, a Santa Claus actor. To view my resume & reel click here.
