Actress, producer, host, New York Times best-selling author, inspirational speaker, mother of three and wife Candace Cameron Bure has emerged as one of the most powerful women in entertainment today. She currently appears on three different television networks (Netflix, Hallmark Channel, and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries) and is considered by millions to be a role model to women of all ages.
Viewers watched Bure grow up as D.J. Tanner in the beloved television series “Full House” during the show's eight-year run. After taping its final episode in 1995, “Full House” still ranks as one of the most successful series of all time.
Bure reprises her role as D.J. in Netflix’s successful original comedy series “Fuller House.” The series follows D.J. as a widow and mother of three, and when things become too much to handle, she enlists the help of her sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber). Guest appearances throughout the series include the original legacy cast members John Stamos, Bob Saget, Dave Coulier and Lori Loughlin.
Fans of Bure saw her daily for years as a co-host of ABC Television Network’s “The View,” where she joined Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Michelle Collins, Paula Faris, and Raven-Symone. Bure became a breakout fan-favorite on the show, in which she engaged in colorful conversations and shared her opinions on everyday issues, political events and controversial news headlines.
After finishing a three-year run as her character Summer Van Horn on ABC Family Network’s “Make It Or Break It,” Bure became executive producer, through her production company iCandy Productions, for the hit “Aurora Teagarden Mystery” movies series on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. The series is based on the books by New York Times best-selling Author Charlaine Harris.
Bure’s third book, Dancing Through Life: Steps of Courage and Conviction, chronicles her journey of self-discovery on Season 18 of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” brought about by leaping out of her comfort zone. The book includes the highs and lows, the roadblocks and the personal victories that she experienced while competing. While making it to the finals and finishing third with her dance partner Mark Ballas, it was here that she stood with courage and conviction as she displayed her Christian faith on one of the largest platforms of her life. Her first two books, Reshaping It All: Motivation for Physical and Spiritual Fitness and Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose made her a New York Times best-selling author.
Bure has starred in multiple movies for Hallmark Channel including “Puppy Love,” “Moonlight & Mistletoe,” and “Let It Snow,” along with “Finding Normal,” Emmy nominated “The Heart of Christmas,” “A Christmas Detour,” “Journey Back to Christmas” and “Christmas Under Wraps.” Most recently, she starred in Hallmark Channel’s “Switched for Christmas,” which premiered November 26.
With a philanthropic spirit that shines through her work, Bure is passionate about non-profits Skip1.org, Compassion International and National House of Hope.
A devoted wife to her husband, former NHL star Val Bure (the two were introduced at a hockey game by Dave Coulier), she has been happily married since 1996. Together with their three children, Natasha, Lev and Maks, they split their time between Los Angeles and Napa Valley, California, which is home to their highly rated boutique wine label, Bure Family Wines.
