Candace Cameron Bure Offers Advice for Christians Who Want to Be Actors

By Movieguide® Contributor 

Actress Candace Cameron Bure recently shared a snippet of her responses to a question-and-answer portion on social media. One question was from an actor who wanted to get into the Christian film genre. 

“I think people mistakenly believe there is a separate network for Christian actors. There isn’t. You can be an actor AND a Christian, but a Christian actor doesn’t really exist,” Bure said. 

“GAF and Hallmark produce as well as feature films that have faith forward values or family values use casting directors. Casting directors submit the roles they are looking to cast to agents,” she went on to explain. “The first step is to have an agent who can submit you for these roles.” 

The FULLER HOUSE star listed New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Nashville as some of the cities to find the most reputable agent. She also shared that when an aspiring actor finds an agent, they can communicate with them the type of projects they want. 

“You can have a conversation with your agent and let them know you’re looking to stay in the faith and family lane for your career,” the veteran actress advised. 

Bure also revealed in a relatable answer to another fan’s question of what her biggest struggle is. 

“I don’t know if this is the biggest… but contentment,” the 48-year-old admitted. “Achievement, goals and markers are so important to me. While those aren’t bad things, they can’t be everything. I’m asking God to help me see and be content with the space, time and value He’s put me in charge of and to steward it well.” 

Another fan asked, “You have such wonderful children, curious what the secrets are in times like these?” 

She teased that upcoming parenting tips were coming in her new season of the “Candace Cameron Bure” podcast in response. 

In another post, she said that she was delaying the release of the seventh season, which she’s calling “Becoming Better Parents,” of her podcast until July to “unplug” to be with family and friends.   

Bure encouraged others to unplug this summer, too, and shared more about the podcast episodes to come, as reported by Movieguide®: 

Spend some time with your family and your friends, and try not to be so consumed with the things on the internet. That’s what I’m going to try to do,” Bure concluded. “And then, let’s reconnect in July and August with brand new conversations that are going to help us prepare for a very noisy fall.” 

“I’ve been interviewed a whole lot in my 40 plus years on television,” the FULL HOUSE actress said in a statement about the podcast’s launch. “I thought it was time to have in-depth conversations about things I really care about — and have lots of fun at the same time!” 

The mom of three often shares about raising her children with biblical values. Movieguide® reported on how she and husband Valeri Bure strived to set a positive example as their children were growing up.     

“If you as a parent can walk with consistency and back up your words with actions, that speaks volumes, and your children will know that; it doesn’t go unnoticed by them ever. That consistency through life will play out, I truly believe that,” Bure told the Christian Post. 

“I’m grateful to see that I have adult children today who are following that road and that path, loving the Lord,” she continued. 

Along with her podcast, the busy actress will be releasing her first movie in the Ainsley McGregor Mystery Series this fall, A CASE FOR THE WINEMAKER, and her holiday movie, A CHRISTMAS LESS TRAVELLED, on the Great American Family Network.
