Entrepreneur, 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 most recently won the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Premium Comedy Series, the Kids Choice Award for Favorite Family TV Show, as well as the Teen Choice Award for Choice TV: Comedy in both 2016 and 2017 and nomination for Choice TV: Chemistry.
Sweetin also starred with her actress friends Beverley Mitchell and Christine Lakin in the unscripted comedy “Hollywood Darlings,” which premiered on POP TV this past April and just received a second season pick up. In addition to co-starring, Sweetin serves as co-Executive Producer on the project.
In 2016, Jodie 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.
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 a few print ads and commercials. She 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 after. 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.
