Fuller House has kept fans entertained over the past couple of weeks since it debuted on Netflix, and its stars are having a field day with everything that’s being thrown at them, including having to learn wrestling moves.
Candace Cameron Bure, who plays DJ on the reboot of the classic show, spoke in an interview recently about what it was like to get into the wrestling ring for an episode, where she refused to let a stunt woman step in and have all the fun. Fans in the live studio audience were shocked that she was doing all the moves, but Bure says it wasn’t that big a deal.
“I’m not an athlete and I’m not a gymnast, but I’ve always loved any type of sport and fitness and I love running Tough Mudder or Spartan races and anything that’s strength…They were all nervous that I wouldn’t do it and they didn’t want me to get hurt. I’m like, “Listen, I know I can do it.” All the producers watched the first cut and they couldn’t believe that I was doing it. It was so much fun; I had a blast,” Bure said.
Candace says she had a couple of days to practice, then filmed the scene on the third day, so there wasn’t a lot of time to prepare. She still nailed the moves, however, and shared photos of the day with her Instagram fans.
Fuller House was recently picked up for a second season, much to the delight of fans, but it’s still unclear whether the Olsen twins will make an appearance. There have been several rumors floating around regarding their absence from the first season–John Stamos says they declined to come back with all the other original actors because they haven’t been on camera in a long time–but a new rumor has started online about Bob Saget talking up Ashley Olsen at a recent movie premiere.
The stars are already getting their first taste of what it’s like to star on a hit show in the age of digital and social media; both Bure and co-star Jodie Sweetin have been in the headlines quite a bit in recent weeks after Christian groups went after them for their wardrobe and non-family friendly behavior on the show, and Miley Cyrus decided to share old photos of Sweetin over the weekend which show her in her party days, straddling a man’s lap in revealing clothing.
