'Full House' Reunion On The Red Carpet: John Stamos, Bob Saget & Candace Cameron Bure Reminisce At Starlight Awards
Full House stars John Stamos, Bob Saget and Candace Cameron Bure walked the red carpet together at the Starlight Awards at L.A.’s Skirball Cultural Center Wednesday evening.
The trio from the much loved family sitcom were happy to chat about their years working together with Dave Coulier, Lori Loughlin, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and others. Leading the dialogue was Sagat, who played the dorky and earnest patriarch Danny Tanner. "There was actually a lot of love, that's why the show's a hit," Saget, 57, told Us Weekly. "[Full House] was a nicely written kid show for 12-year-old kids, mostly girl friendly. Any cast that does well now is because there's stuff going on that's not in the lines where you can see there's a spark going on with them, and that's with the love of that show,” he said.
"Little kids are watching it now like it just started, so it's really quite funny,” he added. “The biggest compliment I get, me especially because I'm the oldest, is, 'You look the same!' I'm like, 'No I don't, dude, I'm all older and puffy,' but they're like, 'No, no.'"
Stamos, who has recently landed recurring guest-starring roles on Glee and The New Normal, still has people who come up to him in the street calling him Uncle Jesse. “I've done so much work since then, but it just doesn't ever go away. I never tried to run from it, but I've really embraced it the last 10 years," he said. "I'm proud of it. "I've done so much work since then, but it just doesn't ever go away. I never tried to run from it, but I've really embraced it the last 10 year. I'm proud of it,” he said, adding, “I could be called worse, right?"
Cameron Bure, who played Sagat’s daughter and Stamos’ niece D.J. on Full House, commented not on the show that made her famous as a teenager, but on Stamos’ love life. The 50-year-old actor has yet to remarry since splitting with Rebecca Romijn in 2005. Who would Cameron Bure like to see her onscreen uncle become involved with? "I can't think of a name," she said before adding, "Someone who just makes him happy. He's such a great guy!"
Full House ended its eight-season run in 1995, but has continued to engage its original following while amassing new fans in syndication.
