Elizabeth Olsen opened up recently about the rumor that she’ll appear on Fuller House, saying she has no idea where it got started and that it’s not something in development.
The Avengers star says she hasn’t been contacted about coming onto the show, which her famous older sisters eschewed in favor of keeping away from the cameras.
“If I did get an offer, I’m pretty sure no one on my team heard it and neither did I. I don’t know where that started,” Elizabeth said.
It may have come about because series creator Jeff Franklin said months ago that when they found out Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen weren’t interested in returning to the series that made them famous, they considered asking Elizabeth if she would come in and take over the role of Michelle but ultimately decided it wasn’t the right fit.
“I am still hopeful that Mary-Kate or Ashley or both of them will come back and be a part of it, even if it’s just for an hour. We miss that. Everybody does feel that hole in the family … But hopefully next time around, we’ll have them back.”
The show’s entire first season has already premiered on Netflix and has been renewed for a second season, and while it doesn’t look like Elizabeth will be making an appearance, some say there still could be a chance that the Olsen twins will show up at some point, even if it’s just for a small cameo.
“The girls are going to wait and see it and see how it is accepted before they move forward with it. They both understand that there is a lot of excitement surrounding it but they keep asking the question, ‘What if it is bad?’ They are in a wait and see mode right now but there is certainly a chance they may show up in the future based on its success,” a source said earlier this year.
Fuller House has already been on the receiving end of praise and criticism, scandals and rumors. With most of the original cast returning to the reboot, it was bound to happen, but the stars are dealing with it the best they can. Jodie Sweetin has already found what she’ll do during her downtime between seasons; she’s currently starring on Dancing With The Stars. Candace Cameron Bure has had a bit of trouble, however, as some of her Christian fans are upset over her wardrobe on the show (among other things). The actress took to Instagram earlier this month to ask her fans to take their religious arguments somewhere else after they were clogging up her comment feed.
This is getting ridiculous!! STOP having religious debates about me and my family on my comments thread after EVERY single photo I post when they have nothing to do with the picture! If someone makes a rude or negative comment, ignore it! You're feeding and driving the negativity. This is NOT productive or respectful conversation. And I'm talking to BOTH sides! It's getting old and downright ugly. This does not represent Jesus well. Let's encourage one another as well as take the debates to a private page. Please and thank you.
