‘Full House’ star Candace Cameron Bure discusses Christian faith, acting and labels

Fans may remember her as DJ Tanner on the popular sitcom Full House, but Candace Cameron Bure has moved on to greater projects. While promoting her latest book, “Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose,” she told TheBlaze that her Christian faith defines who she is, guiding her actions both on and off screen.

Full House Candace Cameron Bure as DJ Tanner“My faith is my basis of who I am. Not only does it affect the choices I make career-wise, but it also effects the things that I want to do,” said Bure, who has three children and is married to retired NHL player Valeri Bure.

She acknowledges a loyal fan base and commitment to keep her projects family friendly.

“I have a really wonderful core audience that has followed me since I was a little girl. They are rooting me on,” she said. “In that way my faith really helps me.”

While she does confess that the Christian stigma in Hollywood may have kept her out of roles, offers and hindered her career, she addresses the Christian label.

“I’m a Christian through and through. I’m not a Christian actress,” she said. “I’m an actress who is a Christian. I’ve actually done very few Christian films … I don’t need a Christian label slapped on what I do so that it complements my faith that way.”

She recounts accepting the Lord Jesus Christ into her heart, crediting her brother Kirk Cameron for giving her a book which changed her life forever.

In the end, she credits her family for her path.

“For me, I can always just go back to my parents and my faith,” she said. “They did a great job of being very involved. Our lives were never really about the industry.”

She added, “It was like a broken record with my parents in a good way. That’s why I didn’t get into drugs.”
