Candace Cameron Bure is known for her role as D.J. Tanner on “Full House” and “Fuller House,” as well as for being an advocate for traditional family values and offering wholesome entertainment. She recently opened up about a scary, life-threatening incident on the set of “Fuller House.”

“If I just even shifted my weight the tiniest bit, it would have probably broken my neck,” recalled Bure in a recent episode of the “How Rude, Tanneritos!” podcast.

Candace Cameron Bure Doesn’t Exaggerate About a Dangerous Stunt on ‘Fuller House’

Bure recently was a guest on he “How Rude, Tanneritos!” podcast hosted by Jodie Sweetin (who played Stephanie Tanner) and Andrea Barber (who played Kimmy Gibbler). After the trio talked about Bure’s son recently getting married, they began to share about old times.

The hosts loved reconnecting with a longtime friend and costar. “I have to say there’s something really special about ‘Kimmy’ and ‘Steph’ being able to interview ‘D.J.,’ and we loved catching up with Candace and reminiscing on the wonderful memories from our childhood,” said Sweetin.

On “Fuller House,” the actors were able to do their own stunts. They reflected on funny memories surrounding an episode of “Mexican wrestling.” But, the tone of the podcast quickly turned somber when they recalled an episode with an obstacle course in the living room on set.

Bure remembered, “I almost died.”

“Yeah, that’s not even an exaggeration,” replied Barber.

As part of the “Fuller House” episode, D.J. Tanner (played by Bure) wanted to complete an obstacle course—much like those seen on “American Ninja Warrior.” So, in comedic fashion, the group set up a course in the living room, including a zipline.

The intention was for Bure to go through the course and zipline across to a platform. But a safety feature was missed during setup.

Bure shared, “During rehearsal, the rig was not set up correctly and there was no safety stop on the end of it.” She continued, “So, when I landed off the zipline and stopped, the whole mechanism—which is all metal and very, very heavy—slid right off the track and came right next to my head with an inch.”

“It dented the floor,” Barber chimed in.

“It broke the stairs,” Sweetin said.
