They may be famous siblings, but Candace Cameron-Bure and Kirk Cameron surprisingly haven’t shared the screen all that often — but that’s all changing. The two are reuniting on Fuller House, with Kirk, 49, set to appear in an episode alongside sister Candace, 43, for the Netflix series’ fifth and final season (debuting Friday, December 6).
“My brother Kirk is in an episode this season, so that was a really fun surprise,” Candace exclusively told Closer Weekly in a new video interview — which you can watch above. “It’s a little bit of, like, a ’90s episode, so Lisa Loeb is in it as well as my brother Kirk. And that week I was directing as well … it was a dream come true to direct my brother.”
Turns out this won’t be the duo’s first time sharing the screen. Candace was actually on his sitcom Growing Pains for two episodes and he ventured over to Full House for one episode, according to their respective IMDb pages. Both of these instances took place in the late ’80s, meaning they haven’t costarred in something together in about 30 years.
“My brother and I have acted — before when we were younger — together,” Candace explained. “And since then we haven’t done anything, uh, any kind of movie or television show together — until season 5 of Fuller House.”
While some relatives may experience some stress when working so closely with each other, that wasn’t the case here.
“He was so game. He just walked onto the set like he’d been … like he never stopped doing a sitcom. He was really funny, but he was so supportive and proud of me directing. So he’s like, ‘Can, just tell me whatever you want me to do.’ And I’d come in and tell him what I wanted to see and he would just give me everything and was very receptive to whatever direction I had for him,” Candace added. “So it was actually … I mean, it was fun. I wanted to give him a hard time. I wanted to somehow fire him on the set and, like, cause drama, but I couldn’t cause he was awesome.”
Be sure to catch the fifth and final season of Fuller House when it hits Netflix on Friday, December 6.
