Candace Cameron Bure Says She Was ‘Totally A Stage Mom’ While Daughter Was On Set

By Movieguide® Contributor

Candace Cameron Bure’s latest movie is a family affair. Bure acted alongside her daughter Natasha in AURORA TEAGARDEN MYSTERIES: HAUNTED BY MURDER.

In the Hallmark movie, Natasha plays the role of a younger version of Bure’s onscreen character.

“It was so much fun for her to play my character as a high school student,” Bure said, sharing that she was “totally a stage mom” while on set. 

“I was having the best time because I had my camera out, I was videotaping everything,” she laughed. “I’m also the producer of the movie, so I can do whatever I want. And I was just ‘stage-momming’ it up in the best of ways. I loved it.”

This movie marks one of Bure’s last collaborations with Hallmark. She recently signed a deal with GAC Family, and she calls the move “an exciting one.”

“I’m always looking for opportunities to grow professionally and creatively,” the actress explained. “Not only will I continue to act and produce in all of my movies, but I’m now curating content and producing content for both channels as a whole.”
