Full House was a beloved 90’s sitcom showing the lives of a one of a kind family. After the loss of their mother, three daughters had to navigate a new home situation that now included their uncle, father, and their father’s best friend. While this series is a classic, it’s been a while since original episodes have aired. Let’s take a look at where the stars are now.
Candace Cameron Bure (DJ Tanner)
Candace Cameron starred as DJ Tanner, the oldest Tanner sister in the series. After playing the role for the entirety of Full House, Cameron went on to guest star in ahandful of popular TV shows before taking a break from acting to focus on her family. After marrying Russian NHL star Valeri Bure in 1996, she had three children before her return to Hollywood. Her latest role is DJ Tanner-Fuller in the Netflix Fuller House reboot. She also went on to host The View and became an author, publishing four books.
Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner)
While Stephanie, the middle child of the Tanner family, remains Jodie Sweetin’s most popular role to date, Sweetin’s career took a much different turn than her castmate’s. After ending filming of Full House when she was 14, Sweetin went on to graduate high school and earn a degree from Chapman University.
After a 15 year struggle with substance abuse issues, Sweetin finally got clean for good in 2008. She published her memoir, unSweetined, where she wrote about her addictions and the benefits of her recovery. Sweetin went on to work at a Los Angeles rehab facility as a drug and alcohol counselor, and has since joined cast-mate Candace on Fuller House as Stephanie Tanner.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (Michelle Tanner)
Twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen both shared the role of youngest daughter Michelle starting when they were infants. Their time on Full House catapulted the twins into tween fame following the series, and the Olsens continued to work in Hollywood. Forming their own production company, Dualstar, the twins went on to star in movies such as It Takes Two, the Challenge, and New York Minute.
After their retirement from acting, the Olsen’s entered the world of fashion. They co-founded luxury brand The Row, lifestyle brand Elizabeth and James, as well as several other merchandise lines such as a teen clothing line in Walmart and JCPenny.
The Olsen’s together are the eleventh richest women in entertainment, as declared by Forbes. They declined the offer to appear on the Fuller House reboot.
John Stamos (Uncle Jesse)
John Stamos was best known for his role as Uncle Jesse, the bad boy younger brother of the deceased mother in Full House. Following that role, Stamos was still very active in Hollywood. He had a staring role in long running sitcom ER, as well as the role of Dr. Nicky in the popular Netflix series, You. Stamos, like his character in the show, remained active in music as well and even toured with the Beach Boys.
He was executive producer of Fuller House and continued the role of Uncle Jesse until the shows ending.
Bob Saget (Danny Tanner)
Bob Saget’s role as Danny Tanner, the gentle father figuring out how to raise three girls, was well recieved. After Full House, Saget went on to Host America’s Funniest Home Videos and voiced the narration for How I Met Your Mother. He also had a lengthy stand up comedy career, and later published a book. Saget reappeared as Danny Tanner in Fuller House.
Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone)
The hilarious Joey Gladstone was the comedian of the series, which makes sense considering Dave Coulier was a comedian in real life. After finishing Full House Coulier went on to do voice acting for various projects and opened his own children entertainment company, F3 entertainment. He continues to tour as a stand up comedian and rejoined Fuller House, once again as Joey.
Lori Loughlin (Aunt Becky)
Lori Loughlin has had the most controversial personal life by far of any of the Full House members. She eloped with fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli and had two daughters, Isabella Rose and Olivia Jade. Loughlin did continue acting in several cancelled TV series, as well as spinoff 90210. These projects, however, are not what has put her name in the spotlight in recent years.
Loughlin and Giannulli became involved in a very public college admissions scandal involving 50 other individuals. She paid off convicted college fixer William Singer, with a $500,000 payment disguised as a donation to the Key Worldwide Foundation to ensure her daughters would be admitted to the University of Southern California on the pretenses of joining the rowing team, a sport neither of her daughters participated in. She pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and will be sentenced on August 21st, 2020.
