Candace Cameron Bure Almost Died Doing FULLER HOUSE Stunt

By Movieguide® Contributor 

Candace Cameron Bure is sharing how she almost died on the set of FULLER HOUSE. 

During an episode of the “How Rude, Tanneritos!” podcast, hosted by her former co-stars Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber, Bure explained how a set malfunction almost cost her life. 

The specific scene involved an obstacle course in the living room set that included a zipline. However, the contraption was not set up safely.

“During rehearsal, the rig was not set up correctly, and there was no safety stop on the end of it,” Bure said. “So, when I landed off the zipline and stopped, the whole mechanism — which is all metal and very, very heavy — slid right off the track and came right next to my head with an inch.”

She was inches from severe injury.

“If I just even shifted my weight the tiniest bit, it would have probably broken my neck, like landed right on top of my head,” she added. “The stunt guy was fired. And [the director] was like, ‘We’re not doing this stunt. Like, redo the whole set, because we’re not doing that stunt anymore.’” 

FULLER HOUSE was a recent sequel to the classic ‘80s and ‘90s sitcom FULL HOUSE. 

“In a continuation of FULL HOUSE (1987), D.J. Fuller is a mother of three young boys and is a recent widow. D.J.’s sister Stephanie, her best friend Kimmy and Kimmy’s teenage daughter all move in to help raise her sons. The house is now a lot fuller,” a synopsis reads. 

FULLER HOUSE ran from 2016 to 2020.

“It was so much harder the second time to say goodbye,” Bure said when the show ended. “I’ll miss it so much but you know, the friendships are never over. We’ll see and talk [to each other] all the time, just not all in the same place.”

Movieguide® also reported on Bure’s love for FULL HOUSE:

Candace Cameron Bure celebrated the 36th anniversary of FULL HOUSE with an Instagram post commemorating her iconic role.

“That Friday feeling 🙌🏼 – flashback to finding the DJ wedding dress ✨,” Bure wrote. “Today also marks 36 years since becoming DJ Tanner, what a ride! So blessed!”

On her Instagram story, Bure added, “I love reading through all your comments and how much FULL/FULLER HOUSE has meant to you over the years. Happy 36 years to DJ TANNER!!”

Bure first began her iconic role as the oldest sister when FULL HOUSE debuted in 1987. She remained with the show for the entirety of its 8-season run.
