Actress, producer and author, Jodie Sweetin garnered the love of millions in her role as Stephanie Tanner on ABC’s long-running, hugely popular sitcom “Full House,” which still airs in syndication. She recently returned to her role as Stephanie in Netflix’s highly anticipated spinoff, “Fuller House.” Netflix renewed the series for a second season just five days after the series premiered and its continued success garnered an instant third season pick up. The return of “Fuller House” has been a favorite across numerous generations and the series has won the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Premium Comedy Series, the Kids Choice Award for Favorite Family TV Show and the Teen Choice Award for Choice TV: Comedy in 2016, 2017 and 2018. “Fuller House” was also nominated for Choice TV: Chemistry.
Sweetin also stars with her actress friends Beverley Mitchell and Christine Lakin in the POP TV unscripted comedy “Hollywood Darlings,” which has already had two successful seasons. In addition to co-starring, Sweetin serves as co-executive producer on the project.
In 2016, Sweetin was the third most Googled actress of the year and the sixth most searched subject on Yahoo. She also lit up the dance floor on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” where she partnered with Keo Motsepe. In 2017, Sweetin starred in her first Hallmark Channel holiday movie “Finding Santa.”
Originally from Orange County, Sweetin always knew she wanted to be an entertainer. Her mother saw that she loved performing and, at three-and-a-half years old, she began doing print ads and commercials. Sweetin soon booked her breakout role in “Full House” and secured her spot in pop culture with her cute lisp and catchy tag line, “How rude!”
In 2009, Sweetin published her memoir, UnSweetined, documenting her life growing up in the spotlight and the years following. In her rare spare time, she loves to dive into a good book.
Sweetin lives in Los Angeles and usually keeps busy going on adventures with her daughters, Zoie and Beatrix.
