The 42-year-old was at the 2019 Movieguide Awards in Hollywood on Friday, February 8, and let everyone know not to expect The Olsen Twins, 32, to play their famous character, Michelle Tanner, again. “You heard it from me first: They will never come back!” Candace told Us Weekly and other reporters at the event. “They are never coming back on the show! They don’t want to be on the show. The answer’s no!” Well it doesn’t get anymore clearer than that.
The Olsen twins of course became tiny mega-stars after playing the youngest Tanner in the household on Full House from 1987 to 1995. Others in the cast included John Stamos (Jesse Katsopolis), Bob Saget (Danny Tanner), Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner), Lori Loughlin (Rebecca Katsopolis) and Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone), all who have appeared in the Netflix revival.
The online streaming platform recently announced that the show’s fifth season will be its last, but Candace will have her hands full (pun intended) even after the sitcom ends, as she’s a mother to three kids — Natasha, 20, Lev Valerievich, 18, and Maksim Valerievich, 17. She has also been married to former ice hockey player, Valeri Bure, since 1996. She once told Us Weekly the secret to a long and happy marriage.
“I always say, put your spouse on a pedestal,” she told the outlet. “And in return, you’re hoping, which my husband does, we have the same respect for one another other … and some days neither of us deserve it, but we do it because we honor one another and respect each other.” She added, “We’re apart a lot because I travel a lot, that’s the secret! Because, you know, being away from each other makes the heart grow fonder.”
