And a little about Fuller House too!

Throughout the holiday season we know that we can turn to both Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries for Christmas movies 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We know we can count on that as sure as we can count on over-indulging on Christmas cookies. As it turns out, one of Hallmark’s biggest stars is just like us in that regard.

“My TV is on Hallmark nonstop and not just because I’m on it. I genuinely love the Christmas movies that they have on. They are great to sit down and watch or to have on in the background while you’re doing other stuff,” Candace Cameron Bure recently told Southern Living.

But the popularity of the Hallmark television brand continues to grow and is due to far more than just their contribution to our Yuletide entertainment.

Bure has starred in fourteen films and counting for the brand—8 films for Hallmark Channel and 6 for Hallmark Movies and Mysteries, with a 7th Aurora Teagarden Mystery coming to the channel in January. Her choice to keep coming back is a deliberate one.

“I have a great partnership with Hallmark. They are a great channel that I believe in, and their branding is held up to the values that I try to honor…because I am very picky about what I choose to do that are representative of families and good values. So Hallmark Channel has just been a wonderful partner for me and like I said our branding lines up perfectly. So that’s why I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.”

Bure’s partnership with Hallmark isn’t slowing down anytime soon. She is continuing her work as one of our favorite TV sleuths.

“I just finished filming the 7th installment of Aurora Teagarden which is going to air in January on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries. So next up, I’m going to film another two Auroras in January and February, which will be out in the springtime.”

But before that, Bure can currently be seen in the new Christmas movie, Switched for Christmas, airing as a part of the network’s Countdown to Christmas, but in this film she has a very special co-star; her daughter. Bure plays twin sisters Kate and Chris Lockhart and shining alongside her real life Mama, Natasha Bure plays daughter to Chris.

“She was wonderful. I was very proud of her,” Bure gushed about her 19-year-old daughter.

“She auditioned for the role and got the part. She earned it. I said it before with my kids. I can always open doors but I can’t walk through them for them. They have to earn it.”

Life on set was truly a family affair. And it makes perfect sense because it’s that family aspect that Bure attributes to Hallmark’s wide appeal and success.

“They {Hallmark} are a destination to go to for families. And whether or not you have children, it’s a destination to go to for feel-good movies and a place that you know you’re not going to have to worry about any of the content in their movies or advertising. It’s always just happy and positive. And a lot of us just want to come home to that...we just want a place to go and be filled with positivity and that’s what Hallmark does.”

Bure is the face of another family-friendly, iconic, American brand, Full House and now Fuller House. She sees the parallels in her projects clearly.

“I think it goes back to the same values that I was talking about. You know the Tanners and Full House has always represented family and heart. And they’re people that will always be there for each other, even if they’re not related by blood. Family is really the people that are closest to you, that you know will always be there for you through thick and thin. That’s what Full House and Fuller House represent.”

The second half of season three of Fuller House is now available on Netflix. For fans of the original show, it’s a delight to see the gang back together but it also is a testament to the longevity of Bure’s career. It’s clear that the careful choices she’s made have secured both her lengthy career as well as her place in the hearts of the American audience. Her work reflects her decision to be as positive a role model as she can be both on and off screen and we think this is what draws the audience to tune in time and time again. Overall, her body of work provides a counter to the harsh realities we face in today’s divisive world.

“I would like to hope so that it is or just in some way encourages them to just do their part in being kind to people. Whether they are like us, or nothing like us. And even more importantly if they are nothing like us. So I would hope, {that} yeah, these are the types of shows, the entertainment that I provide that encourage people in that way and to love on people.”
