Candace Cameron Bure went from D.J. Tanner on "Full House" to the Queen of Hallmark Christmas, ultimately moving to rival network Great American Family. Now, her 25-year-old daughter Natasha Bure is following in her footsteps. Natasha, who competed on "The Voice" in 2016, is part of the new generation of TV stars. 2023's "A Christmas for the Ages" marks her first-ever leading role and her Great American Family debut.
Natasha is the oldest of three children Candace shares with her husband of over 20 years, former professional hockey player Valeri Bure. They also have two sons: Lev and Maksim. Unlike some parents in the world of entertainment, Candace is fully behind her daughter's dream of pursuing acting. "My husband's super supportive of whatever our kids' dreams are ... both of us [are]," she explained to Closer Weekly.
"You know, the good thing is that I'm in this industry and Natasha and I are super close. We talk about everything. She is very trusting of me and my opinions, which, as a mom, is wonderful. It's really smart of her."
Natasha made her TV debut back in 2011 on the ABC Family series "Make It or Break It," on which her mother was a series regular. That same year, she had a small role in her mother's film "The Heart of Christmas." But it wasn't until 2017 that Natasha made her Hallmark Channel debut in her mom's festive flick "Switched for Christmas."
In the years since, Natasha has had roles in TV films like "Faith, Hope & Love," the faith-based "Home Sweet Home" and "The Farmer and the Belle: Saving Santaland." She even made a fun cameo appearance alongside mom in the final season of Netflix's "Fuller House."
"She actually didn't know if she even wanted to audition for 'Fuller House'," Candace revealed. "And I understood where she was coming from. But I was like, 'It's totally up to you, but you'd break my heart if you didn't.'"
Outside of her acting career, Natasha is a published author. Her 2017 self-help book "Let's Be Real: Living Life as an Open and Honest You" is a collection of personal stories aimed at guiding readers toward living authentically, no matter life's stresses.
