PROUD TO BE A TAN­NER, AGAIN

Herald Sun - Switched On - - COVER STORY - TIF­FANY DUNK NA­TIONAL TV EDITOR

Can­dace Cameron Bure is truly the epit­ome of a child star made good.

Un­like many of her con­tem­po­raries who fell into the var­i­ous traps that fame can lay, she has man­aged to not only sur­vive but flour­ish. In fact, to­day Cameron Bure is busier than ever.

She has re­turned along­side all of her Full House co-stars to shoot the re­booted Fuller House, is a pre­sen­ter on the hit US day­time talk show The View and is both pro­duc­ing and star­ring in the Aurora Tea­gar­den Mys­tery movies.

Cameron Bure plays the tit­u­lar hero­ine in the made-for-TV films. A feisty li­brar­ian who heads up the lo­cal un­solved mur­der mys­tery club, Aurora un­wit­tingly finds her­self at the cen­tre of much of the drama.

But while the books on which the films are based were writ­ten by Char­laine Harris — who also penned the nov­els which gave way to True Blood — this se­ries is de­cid­edly G-rated.

“I pre­fer things that are a lit­tle more fam­ily friendly,” Cameron Bure says.

“I choose the types of projects that I do be­cause it’s what I en­joy watch­ing in real life. I want to be able to sit in the com­fort of my home and watch things with my kids and not have to blush if I’m watch­ing some­thing that’s maybe in­ap­pro­pri­ate.”

With two films al­ready made and com­ing to our screens, a third is about to start pro­duc­tion. And the plan is to con­tinue — there are nine books in the se­ries with the pos­si­bil­ity of more to come.

But un­til that time, Cameron Bure has her hands full with what may be one of the most an­tic­i­pated TV projects for 2016, Fuller House.

With all of the orig­i­nal cast back on board, she’s en­joy­ing step­ping back into the “com­fort­able shoes” of DJ Tan­ner.

“It’s like none of us ever left,” she says. AURORA TEA­GAR­DEN MYS­TERY: A BONE TO PICK, 13TH STREET, TUES­DAY, 8.30PM
