Candace Cameron Bure’s Daughter to Play Teenage Version of Her in New Movie
“Full House,” “Fuller House” and Hallmark Channel veteran Candace Cameron Bure is starring in an upcoming Hallmark Movies & Mysteries film. But while she might be looking forward to the role, she seems to be even more excited about one of her costars.
In the upcoming movie “Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: Haunted By Murder,” which premieres Feb. 20 at 9 p.m. on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Channel, Bure plays the title character. But so does her eldest child. Natasha, who is also Bure’s only daughter, plays a younger version of Aurora during a flashback scene.
Natasha is not the only family member of the cast making an appearance. Lexa Doig plays Aurora’s friend Sally Allison, and her daughter, Mia Shanks, portrays a younger version of Sally, as well.
Hallmark Movies & Mysteries describes the plot as a “murder investigation in a house that is considered haunted by the Lawrenceton locals” and where, years ago, teenagers Aurora and Sally discovered a body. The made-for-TV movie also stars Niall Matter and Marilu Henner.
The couple has three children. Natasha was born in 1998, Lev was born in 2000 and Maksim was born in 2002. Natasha is an actress like her mother, while the boys take after their dad and play hockey.
Bure shared an interview on her Facebook page talking about how special it is to share a role with her daughter.
“I’m sharing this character with my daughter, which is so cool,” Bure shared. “I actually have acted with Natasha before, but she’s never played my, like a character that I’m playing, so it is pretty cool. It’s really special, it meant a lot to me that she said yes.”
