Candace Cameron Bure Reveals Why Family Moved

Actress Candace Cameron Bure has been making headlines recently for her decision to leave Los Angeles and move her family out of the city. The 48-year-old star, known for her role on “Full House,” sat down with Fox News Digital to discuss her reasons for leaving Hollywood and her upcoming role in the Christian drama “Unsung Hero.”

The actress shared that her main motivation for leaving L.A. was the safety and well-being of her loved ones. Bure revealed that she and her family had experienced several incidents of fans hiding on their property and coming to their door, leading them to no longer feel safe in their own home. This concern for safety led her to make the decision to move her family away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles.

Bure acknowledged that not everyone in Hollywood lives behind guard gates and that her family did not have that added layer of protection. She also shared that they had faced other safety concerns and difficulties while living in the city over the years. As a loving and protective mother and wife, Bure could not ignore these issues and felt it was best for her family to move to a safer location. The actress then revealed that they still live in California, but have moved up north to a new location, debunking rumors of the family moving to Nashville or Texas.

While Bure’s family adjustment may have played a role in her decision to move, the actress also shared that she was no longer tied to L.A. because her children were no longer living there. Bure and her husband, Valeri Bure, who have been married for over 25 years, are now empty nesters with their three children, Natasha, Lev, and Maksim, all in their 20s and pursuing their own dreams and careers.

The actress said that she and Valeri have built strong relationships with their kids throughout the years, which has allowed them to maintain a close bond even though they no longer live in the same city.

In upcoming film, “Unsung Hero,” Bure revealed that her preparation for the role of Kay Albright, the family’s kind and supportive neighbor, included practicing a Southern accent. Bure joked that she called all of her Southern friends to help her perfect her accent for the film. She also shared that she had the opportunity to meet the real-life person she was portraying in the film, Kay, who she described as “a delight,” and “a sweet, sweet woman.”

The film, which is based on the true story of the Smallbone family and their journey from Australia to the U.S. in pursuit of a brighter future, holds a special place in Bure’s heart. The actress explained that she found many relatable moments in the film and was particularly inspired by the mother in the story, Helen Smallbone, who stayed strong and supportive of her husband and family even during difficult times.

Bure also related to the struggles of the father, David Smallbone, who had to rebuild his life and career in a new country. She praised the story for its message of family and faith, and hopes that audiences take away the importance of cherishing and loving their own families.

Bure also addressed the recent documentary “Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV,” which explores the toxic culture behind some of Nickelodeon’s most iconic children’s shows. The actress shared that she found the documentary difficult to watch but praised the stories of resilience and strength from those who spoke out about their experiences. She also encouraged young actors and their families to be cautious and trust their instincts when navigating the entertainment industry.

Bure ended the interview by sharing her love for her family and how grateful she is for the strong foundation her parents created for her as a child star. She praised her parents for helping her avoid the pitfalls that other child stars have faced in Hollywood and for always keeping her grounded.
