Candace Bure has made a living being other people—first as a child actor in the now-classic sitcom, “Full House,” then in movies, commercials and more. She took a decade off to raise her family then, in 2009, ABC Family called.
Candace was to play a shady, “gold digger” girlfriend on the Olympic-themed TV show, “Make It or Break It.” But after the producers met their actress, they changed their character!
In Candace, they found a warm, genuine woman who was so real and likable in her faith, they wanted a Christian character like that on their show. The result? Candace played a positive Christian role model on TV for three years.
“I absolutely love my character Summer Van Horne!” Candace says of that time. “She is a loving and nurturing soul who truly wants the best for [others].”
