Lori Loughlin has no problems being America's Aunt Becky. The actress, who shot to fame on Full House and has returned to the role more than 20 years after the series ended with Netflix's Fuller House, said she never felt pigeonholed by the series.
"You know, to this day I still get people calling me Aunt Becky and I'm not offended by that at all. Full House has afforded me wonderful opportunities in my career," she told E! News. Those other opportunities include Summerland, 90210 and recently When Calls the Heart and Garage Sale Mystery movie series for Hallmark. "I feel lucky. I didn't get boxed in by that, I'm still working, so it's all good."
Returning to the Tanner clan in Fuller House proved to be a little surreal for the actress and mom of two teenage girls, Bella and Olivia.
"It was a little surprising the first time I walked on set and I saw our old set... I didn't expect that to be as emotional as it was," she said. "Kind of a moment of, 'Wow, I think I'm going to cry.' It was totally surreal, it really was."
