D.J.'s got moves!
Of all the things viewers notice while binge-watching Fuller House this weekend, perhaps the one they'll least expect is this: Candace Cameron Bure (who is totally hilarious while reprising her role as D.J. Tanner) is great at the physical stunts.
The show gets surprisingly physical in multiple episodes thanks to both choreographed dances and intense wrestling matches, and Bure did all the stunts herself, regardless of the fact that there was a professional stunt double on hand.
"That is me, every single move," Bure tells E!'s Kristin Dos Santos in the video above of a scene involving Mexican wrestling. "They hired a stunt-woman, and they said, 'Don't worry, just watch her and we'll just kind of do close-ups of your face, she's going to do everything.' And when I watched her run through the routine the first time, I went, 'She's not doing it, I'm doing the whole thing!'"
Bure's Fuller House costars could do nothing but praise Cameron Bure's ass-kicking skills.
"It was amazing," Andrea Barber says. "The reactions you see in the audience are genuine."
The Mexican wrestling scene in particular even inspired Jodie Sweetin's Christmas present to Cameron Bure, which we are now definitely going to need proof of.
For the record, Full House and Fuller House producer Robert Boyett was not shocked that Cameron Bure didn't need the stunt doubles.
"I think I would have been [surprised] a couple years ago, but after seeing her on Dancing with the Stars, I thought, who knows what she can do?" Boyett says. "She was the one who said, let me do everything. She did a good job."
The moves Candace learned on Dancing with the Stars (where she came in third) come directly in handy in one episode that features the girls taking part in a dancing competition alongside guest stars and DWTS pros Maks and Val Chmerkovskiy. If Candace surprises you with her stunt skills, then Maks and Val will definitely surprise you with their comedic abilities.
