Actress Candace Cameron Bure has opened up about her personal beliefs and her relationship with her equally famous, and open Christian, brother Kirk Cameron. The interview comes at the same time as the release of "The Heart of Christmas" on DVD and a recent "Full House" reunion.
"Acting is my first passion-and my faith is incredibly important, which flows into every aspect of my life, which includes the decisions that I make on acting," Bure told Yahoo's Meriah Doty. "I want to focus on great family programming and good movies and the charitable organizations that I'm involved with."
When it comes to dealing with her brother, Kirk, an outspoken Christian advocate who has his own series focused exclusively on evangelism, Bure said she and Kirk "have a different style of saying some of those things. But he is much more in the world of ministry and does a lot of conferences…that's really his main focus."
"I think Kirk does his stuff great and does his stuff really well, and I think I what I do, I do well. And we're a great brother and sister," Bure added.
Her acting is what made her famous in the first place, playing the role of DJ (Donna Jo) Tanner on "Full House," before moving on to have a family and then finally returning to acting in new roles. She has starred on "Make It Or Break It," playing a Christian role, which she said, "was a bonus… to be able to play someone that I shared the same faith with."
Bure shares her thoughts and beliefs via Twitter and has over 173,000 followers, proof of her continued popularity with fans. Her latest film, "The Heart of Christmas" is available on DVD now. Some of Bure's movies, including "Puppy Love," can be seen on the Hallmark Channel.
