MARRIED FOR SIX YEARS NOW
The 92-year-old veteran met the makeup artist back in 2006, with whom, six years later, he tied the knot. This is Van Dyke's second marriage after divorcing Margie Willet, the mother of his four children, in 1984.
Besides Silver, the actor posed with the film's stars, Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda, who had nothing but great things to say about the Hollywood legend.
A YOUNG SPIRIT AT HEART
According to Miranda, Van Dyke's energy is absolutely incredible and only takes five minutes with him to feel 'more alive than you were before.' Plus, he added that Van Dyke was very fun to work with.
Blunt agreed by saying that the 92-year-old made them feel as if they were not doing enough with their lives, especially considering his advanced age.
PORTRAYING A FAMILAR ROLE
Van Dyke made an astounding return to the world of "Mary Poppins" after starring as Mr. Dawes Sr. in the original film. Now, 54 years later, the actor was given the opportunity to portray the son of the banker from the first movie.

In 1964, Van Dyke had to use several prosthetics to make himself look older, but this time the makeup department had it easier since no prosthetics were required to play the part.

He is also the only original actor to return in the sequel, which takes place in the 1930s, 25 years after the events of the first movie, making his presence in the flick even more remarkable.
