Candace Cameron Bure has once again reunited with her former, “Full House”, co-stars, John Stamos and Bob Saget. Bure played the eldest daughter, DJ Tanner, on the 1990s sitcom along with Stamos who played Uncle Jesse, and Saget who played the single father raising three daughters.
They met up together at the Starlight Awards at L.A.’s Skirball Cultural Center on Wednesday, September 25. Starlight is a charity that helps families with children that are being hospitalized. While there, they reminisced about their time on the show.
“There was actually a lot of love, that’s why the show’s a hit,” said Saget. “It was a nicely written kid show for 12-year-old kids, mostly girl friendly. Any cast that does well now is because there’s stuff going on that’s not in the lines where you can see there’s a spark going on with them, and that’s with the love of that show. This was a kid show and a family show so we all genuinely have affection, a love for each other.”
Saget continued: “It is a part of culture and it’s not going away. Little kids are watching it now like it just started, so it’s really quite funny. The biggest compliment I get, me especially because I’m the oldest, is, ‘You look the same!’ I’m like, ‘No I don’t, dude, I’m all older and puffy,’ but they’re like, ‘No, no.’
Saget says that he still frequently gets referred to as his character’s name, Danny Tanner. “It’s like being in a Big Bird suit,” he explained, “but it’s an honor having done a show that so many people love.”
Stamos agreed with Saget and says the he is constantly getting called Uncle Jesse. “I’ve done so much work since then, but it just doesn’t ever go away. I never tried to run from it, but I’ve really embraced it the last 10 years,” he said. “I’m proud of it and then main thing is that I really feel that Full House helped a lot with Starlight and we helped a lot of kids through Full House through the Uncle Jesse thing to make a lot of kids happy,” Stamos added. “I could be called worse, right?”
