It's safe to say Candace Cameron Bure of Full House and Fuller House is one of the most iconic faces of family-oriented television, and now her daughter is following in her footsteps. Candace, who has starred in multiple Hallmark Christmas movies in the past, is welcoming her daughter to the small screen. The mother-daughter duo will be starring in Switched for Christmas, which premieres on the network on November 26, 2017. Candace opened up about what it was like working with her daughter Natasha Bure.
"I made it a point to be a co-star and not a mom when we were filming," Candace said in an interview with People. "It was really important to me to make sure I let the director do their job and not give Natasha any acting notes. I did make sure she understood the technical aspects of what was going on during filming because I think that kind of stuff is really important for any newer actor to learn. It makes their jobs easier in the future."
According to a Hallmark's description, the story follows the journey of a set of estranged twin sisters (both played by Candace, btw), who "get together for an obligatory pre-Christmas lunch, a year after their mother died. Both women are unhappy and frustrated with their own lives. Though not close, each is envious of the other’s life." As a result, the two swap lives until the day of Christmas. Naturally, this leads to the sisters finding true appreciation of their own lives. Ahh, classic Hallmark. But wait, Candace and Natasha's film is just one of the new original Hallmark Christmas movies that will be premiering this season...
In fact, there's a whopping 21 new holiday movies coming out this season. It just so happens that Candace isn't the only Full House alum that you'll see. Lori Loughlin is another familiar face on the network, and they just got their co-star Jodie Sweetin in on it too. How exciting?! If this isn't proof they really are a family IRL, what is?!
“I was very excited for Jodie to do a Christmas movie this year,” Bure said. “Lori and I had been talking to Hallmark and said Jodie would be perfect for one, so I’m thrilled it happened.”
