Many audiences know Candace Cameron Bure from ABC's hit television series, “Full House,” where we affectionately knew her as D.J. Tanner. Still running in over 100 countries in syndication, Bure will forever be part of TV history through Nick At Nite and ABC Family network lineups.
With an acting career that started at the age of five, Bure appeared in several national television commercials and prime-time hits such as “St. Elsewhere,” “Growing Pains” and “Who's the Boss.” Candace also earned a string of lead roles in television movies including the critically acclaimed portrayal of an abused teenager in “No One Would Tell.”
Her feature film credits stand up to the light of her television success with appearances in such films as “Punchline” with Tom Hanks and Sally Field. She entered another genre of pop culture when she was cast in John Hughes’ “Some Kind of Wonderful” and the Cohen Brother's film “Monster Mash.”
After Bure married NHL star Valeri Bure in 1996, she put her career on ice for a while in order to stay home and raise a full house of her own. She has been happily married for over 13 years and is the proud mother of three awesome kids.
Over the last few seasons, Bure has appeared in an episode of Disney's “That's So Raven,” starred opposite Randy Travis in the PureFlix film “The Wager” and has fulfilled the duties as a guest host on ABC's top rated, daytime hit show “The View.” Bure most recently starred in the made for television Hallmark Channel Original Movie, “Moonlight & Mistletoe” and now most notably is in the midst of completing episodes as her character Summer Van Horn on ABC Family Network’s bona-fide hit show “Make It Or Break It.” Since its debut, “Make It Or Break It” has scored huge numbers in the Nielson ratings each week as television’s #2 most watched show in its time slot for females ages 12-17, with an overall average viewership of almost 2.4 million each week over the first ten weeks of the series.
Bure’s philanthropic spirit has given support to the Skip1.org, Compassion International, Sheraton House and Children's Hunger Fund. Bure serves as the National Ambassador for National House of Hope and all the while continues to travel the country speaking at various churches and women's conferences sharing her Christian faith.
