This is how Candace Cameron has changed, from living with three ‘Forced Parents’ to an enemy of the LGTB + collective

He is currently a fixed figure on American television and there is no one who does not know Candace Cameron Bure. There aren’t many viewers left internationally either, because at just eleven years old, she was cast in the role that would change her life: that of DJ Tanner, the eldest daughter of Danny Tanner (Bob Saget), in Housebroken Parents.

A series that made her the quintessential teenager on the small screen for a whole generation that saw her grow during the eight seasons that the hit series lasted, and that cemented her position as a television character that continues to this day. Of course, not without controversy, because the actress has been highly criticized for her religious beliefs, a very strict and conservative Christianity, which she has never been afraid to defend out loud.

Candance Cameron was barely six years old when she began to take her first steps in the world of cinema, initially encouraged by the success of her brother, the also actor Kirk Cameron, star of another world-famous series: problems grow, where he also made a small cameo. After being chosen for some advertisements, the then little Candace made the leap to the small screen definitively in one of the series of the moment, Punky Brewster (1985), which would give her an opportunity to test for the series that would change her Life: Forced Parents.

A role that would arrive in 1987 and that would transform her into Donna “DJ” Tanner, the eldest daughter of Danny Tanner (Bob Saget), who lived with her brother-in-law Jesse and his best friend, Joey; and her daughters, Stephanie and Michelle, in a big house in San Francisco. The series was always one of the public’s favorites, and managed to stay on the screen for no less than eight seasons, being broadcast internationally to this day.
