Candace Cameron Bure Talks ‘Fuller House,’ Her Family Life, and More

You could never say that Candace Cameron Bure only slept three hours last night.

She arrives bright and radiant to all of her Good Housekeeping photo coverage in late January around 10:45 a.m. after appearing on two-morning television shows a few hours earlier. Dressed in a poppy-red dress and full makeup, Candace greets everyone before taking a seat on a stool inside the studio. Straightening her dress on her lap, she politely requests a cup of tea, then lets out a festive expiration: for a brief moment during a day otherwise filled with camera appearances and events to promote her new book for children, Cultivating Candace Grow, Candace is ready to think about all this – her past, present and future projects.

Fuller House, the Netflix series, which finished filming its fifth and final season in November, is the most obvious. Although Candace captured a lot of hugs and warm tears on social media in the days leading up to (and on the day of) the final recording, she is currently in a place where she can chat about it without getting emotional. That said, when the last episodes of season 5 are available on Netflix, it could be another story.

“I don’t think reality has struck yet. And I don’t think it will likely be until summer that we won’t come back,” said Candace, settling in her chair. “I’m definitely more comfortable now than I was when we finished filming. But it was difficult at the end.”

And it’s understandable. In recent years, acting – and sometimes realizing – the reboot of the famous sitcom of the 90s Full house was a huge source of joy for Candace. The realization that this could be the final arc for his beloved television character D.J. Tanner is difficult to deal with. But even still, Candace looks at the positive side of it all – even if the series ends, her close relationships with her co-stars, including Jodie sweetin and Andrea Barber, certainly not.

“The three of us chat by videoconference. I talk to them every day. We, Marco Polo. We love Marco Polo,” she reveals, smiling. “And in the texts of the big groups, there are different groups, I speak with John [[[[Stamos], Bob [[[[Saget], and Dave [[[[Corridor]too.”

And so, the show continues for Candace via GIF and emoji exchanges. What also helps is to know that when Full house was discontinued in 1995, it wasn’t really over for the fans, and it probably never will be. Although she can never sit on the Tanner blue and white checkered sofa again, Candace realizes that for many she will always be “Deej” – and it is comforting to know.

“If I am still known by the name of D.J. Tanner and everyone’s big sister, I will be delighted and happy,” she explains. “Full house and Fuller House have brought so much joy, comfort and love to so many people. There is nothing more that I want to be associated with than wonderful and positive things. I embrace the show as an adult, just like I took it over when I was 10 years old. ”

Thinking about it at the start Full house Candace said that she felt very much like D.J. during this period of her life – an “average and typical American kid” who, like any teenager, was just trying to understand everything. Contrary to some turbulent stories of child actors in Hollywood, Candace only relays fond memories of her time spent on camera.

If I am still known as D.J. Tanner and everyone's big sister, I will be delighted and happy.

“There was not a lot of focus on the image and the beauty of the producers, so I didn’t pay much attention to it [on set]”She recalls.” It was the same with my family and my agents. I have never heard people around me say that I should look a certain way or have a certain weight, and I think that is half the battle. ”

But while working on the show, there was an actress whose appearance she particularly admired. “Right in front of me, Lori Loughlin has always been such a standard of beauty. She is incredibly beautiful. ”

It’s the only time Candace’s name drops Lori, saying she “prefers not to comment” anything related to the absence of her co-star in the last season of Fuller House (and, by extension, the old When the heart calls you the actress’s involvement in the university admissions scandal that made the headlines). Candace has made it clear that she considers Lori “a dear and close friend”, and she graciously prefers to leave it there. That said, she lights up when asked about the other cast members – in particular, her father forever on TV.

“Bob was my mentor growing up on the set. Not just because he played with a dad, but because he is a dad, so he helped us a lot, we kids, making sure we were protected and that everything was fine, “recalls Candace.

Uncle Joey also left an indelible mark on her: “Dave was just great fun. Dave was like growing up uncle. So he took me to the circus, he took me to my first hockey game. They were all great [including John]. I learned so much from them. ”

It is these lessons from her childhood mentors that she will apply when she undertakes other projects beyond the walls of the living room of Tanners’ townhouse in San Francisco. In 2008, she starred in Moonlight and GUI, her first of all 23 Hallmark films. Six years later, she waltzed and made her way to third place Dancing with the stars. Before knowing it, she further widened her horizons in 2015, accepting a job on View next to Raven Symoné, Michelle Collins, Paula Faris, Joy Behar, and Whoopi Goldberg.

“It was a super tough job,” she immediately points out. View is mentioned. “It helped me grow a lot, but it was the hardest job I have had to date.”

Staying up to date on politics was, in itself, “tiring”. But in addition, she says there was also the added stress of feeling like a lot of people in the room – the co-hosts and the New York-based audience – was probably not going to agree with his conservative point of view: “It’s more difficult, so you always feel like you’re fighting to voice your opinion.”

Aside from the challenges, Candace is ready to do a talk show again – but maybe something “a little lighter and more fun” next time. After all, family entertainment is much more of a jam.

“The values ​​my parents instilled in me understood that family was the most important thing. And so I always knew, even in my early twenties, that it wasn’t my goal to do something that I felt the kids or my own parents couldn’t watch – even if the role was incredible. For this reason, I have said “no” a lot over the years. ”

It is clear that Candace lives by saying that “family is everything”. In fact, you may have noticed that there is a small gap in Candace’s career, between the late 1990s and the mid-2000s. This is because Candace spent these years raising a family with her 24-year-old NHL star husband Valeri Bure (they have three children together, Natasha, 21, Lev, 20 and Maksim, 18). It was then that Candace moved to Canada for Val’s hockey career and deliberately decided to take a break from the entertainment industry after Natasha was born.

I am 44 years old and I like to get stronger physically as I get older.

Candace remembers that this period of her life was particularly difficult, even if some parts were “really wonderful”. She went from the constant comfort of working – from the age of five – to being suddenly thrown “into a world she didn’t know – a housewife, a hockey woman and soon after, a mom”, like she noted it in her 2011 book. Reshape it all: Motivation for physical and spiritual fitness. When Val was on the road, loneliness began to settle and Candace turned to food for comfort – and the cravings eventually led to an eating disorder: bulimia.

“I guess a lot of young people go to college during this season of their lives to understand things, and that was what that time was for me,” recalls Candace. “My early twenties was a moment of discovery. I felt like a hot mess and I needed this time to find the path I wanted.”

But things turned around for her, thanks to her faith, family and friends.

“I later started assembling parts and finding out what was important to me after I had my kids.”

Over time, Candace also began to see the gym differently. Training has become the actress’ self-care and a way to get stronger and healthier, not just lose weight. Her passion for fitness also helped her maintain a more positive relationship with her body. Seeing what his body was able to do gave him the motivation to continue taking care of it. To date, she will try to do one hour workouts four to five days a week to keep her body and mind in a balanced place.

“I’m 44 years old and I like to get stronger physically as I get older. When I was younger and focused on losing weight, I hated going to the gym. But now I like to lift weights and dance. It was no longer a question of restriction, and it totally changed the game. Now I feel really good. ”

Today, Candace is “100%” in a more confident place. She is 44 years old, adapting to life as an empty breeder and, true to her go-go-go nature, has her hands full of projects again. In January, she was busy promoting Grow up, Candace, Grow up while filming its 13th and 14th Aurora Teagarden Mystery films for Hallmark.

Sure, she now spends her days at home in Malibu, California, with her quarantined family, but she plans to film three more Aurora Teagarden Mystery movies with Hallmark in the fall and some “Christmas movies”. In addition to that, she runs her line of religiously inspired products, the Candace Cameron Bure collection, and her production company, Candy Rock Entertainment, which produces and develops scripted and unscripted lifestyle programs primarily in the family content arena. She also hopes to add some staging concerts to her to-do list.

Although Candace does not require an early morning wake-up call like this Good Housekeeping spent with her, she has long been known for her inspiring juggling act: working actress, talk show host, mom, wife, writer and the face of various brands – but, hey, she certainly doesn’t complain.

“Work keeps me going. I love what I do. It’s what energizes me. I like to push myself and I have big dreams and I come, I pursue them,” she explains. “And this year is a year to flower and grow, and that’s what I intend to do.”

It is now a little before noon on the day of its publication in January, and she has asked to start changing into her first outfit for our cover shoot for the May issue. With this brilliant D.J. Tanner smiles that we all know so well lighting his face, Candace gets up from the stool and heads for the change area, ready for her next move.
