Candace Cameron Bure’s Daughter, Natasha Bure, to Take the Lead in New RomCom
By Jessilyn Lancaster, Managing Editor
Natasha Bure, daughter of Christian actress Candace Cameron Bure, will take the lead in an upcoming faith-based romantic comedy called HOME SWEET HOME.
Bure will star opposite Ben Elliot.
Flirtatious barista Victoria is bored with her social butterfly lifestyle and longs for real love. When handsome Jason walks into her coffee shop, she turns on the charm, but he doesn’t respond to her flirting like men usually do. When she discovers that he runs a ministry that builds affordable housing, she decides to volunteer.
Victoria shows up to volunteer looking more like a model than a construction worker. She quickly realizes that it’s not going to be easy to fit in with this crew of experienced workers or to get Jason to ask her out on a date. When he proves to be immune to her tried-and-true techniques, Victoria is nonplussed. Then it hits her. Since flirting is not going to work on this guy, she researches both “how to act like one of them, a Christian,” and “how to build a house,” so she can give the appearance of belonging. Her new approach gains her some ground until she meets the single mom who will own the house they’re building, her eyes are opened. Jason is there to serve others, while she has just been getting in the way.
Home Sweet Home is a film for all ages and features a talented cast. The heart of the story brings to light the selfless act of serving others in need.
Bure is no stranger to acting. She previously appeared in FAITH, HOPE & LOVE and Hallmark’s SWITCHED FOR CHRISTMAS.
Bure thanks her family for teaching her sound morals and wisdom. Her father is retired hockey player Valeri Bure.
“I really do owe the way that I am to my parents because I was raised in a pretty, I wouldn’t say strict household, but I would say, I was definitely guarded and I had a lot of rules,” Bure told Fox News last year. “I wasn’t given an overly excessive amount of freedom where I could just do whatever I want, you know, just kind of run wild.
“I think because of that I don’t really get tempted too much in Hollywood,” Bure continued. “I’m pretty secure in who I am and what I believe in and what I stand for. I literally spend most of the time hanging with my family or by myself at home so I honestly, probably would just give all of that credit to how my parents raised me.”
In addition to acting, Bure also appeared on THE VOICE and initially had plans to be in musical theater.
“I lived in Florida for a really long time, and over there, there’s not a ton of film and production,” Bure said. “It’s more of a place I guess for modeling, and there’s a ton of musical theatre… so I never really saw my mom’s [projects] as inspiration, but I think more now than ever, film and TV is something I’m interested in.”
Bure is also interested in honoring her mother. The two cohosted the 27th Movieguide® Awards in 2019.
“She’s given me the typical talks, but I think more than anything, I’ve just witnessed a lot of her doing in the entertainment industry — as far as what she does and how she carries herself,” Bure said.
“She knows that I definitely want to be my own person,” Bure added. “But I am the type of person who always asks her because I do want her advice [and] it’s also something I want to learn by myself. It’s a bit of balance.”
HOME SWEET HOME is expected to release this May.
