CANDACE CAMERON BURE
Actress, producer, host, New York Times best-selling author, inspirational speaker, mother of three and wife Candace Cameron Bure is emerging as one of the most powerful women in entertainment. She currently appears on four different television networks (ABC, Netflix, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries) and is considered by millions as a role model to women of all ages. Viewers watched Bure grow up as D.J. Tanner in the beloved television series “Full House” during the show's eight-year run. After taping its final episode in 1995, “Full House” still ranks as one of the most successful series of all time.
Bure has stepped back into her role as D.J. in Netflix's top-rated original series “Fuller House.” The much buzzed about series follows Bure (D.J.) as a widow and mother of three, and when things become too much to handle, she calls in the help of her sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber). Guest appearances throughout the series include the original legacy cast members John Stamos, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier. Entering its fifth season this year, they have won multiple Teen Choice, People’s Choice and Kids Choice Awards. After finishing a three-year run as her character Summer Van Horn on ABC Family Network’s “Make It or Break It,” Bure became the executive producer with her production company iCandy Productions for her hit mystery movie series “The Aurora Teagarden Mysteries” on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries in which she plays the title character. The series is based on the books by New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris.
Bure recently released her fifth book, Kind is the New Classy: The Power of Living Graciously following her success with Staying Stylish: Cultivating a Confident Look, Style & Attitude. Her third book, Dancing Through Life: Steps of Courage and Conviction, was another break out success, which chronicled her journey of self-discovery on season 18 of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.” Her first two books, Reshaping It All: Motivation for Physical and Spiritual Fitness and Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose made her a New York Times best- selling author. Last year Bure released her first fiction book, which also happened to be her first children’s book, Candace Center Stage. Bure has starred in multiple movies for Hallmark Channel, including “Puppy Love,” “Moonlight & Mistletoe,” “Let It Snow,” “Finding Normal,” the Emmy-nominated “The Heart of Christmas,” “Christmas Detour,” “Christmas Under Wraps,” “Journey Back to Christmas” and 2017’s “Switched for Christmas. All these films have been top-rated for the network.
With a philanthropic spirit that shines through her work, Bure is passionate about non-profits Skip1.org, Compassion International and National House of Hope.
A devoted wife to her husband, former NHL star Val Bure (the two were introduced at a hockey game by Dave Coulier), the couple has been happily married since 1996. Together with their three children, Natasha, Lev and Maks, they split their time between Los Angeles and Napa Valley, California, which is home to their highly rated boutique wine label, Bure Family Wines.
Rozon’s first major role was playing heartthrob Tommy Quincy opposite Alexz Johnson and Laura Vandervoort for four seasons on the teen drama series “Instant Star” for TeenNick (USA) and CTV (Canada). He was then cast as the series lead Alex Caine, playing a gang infiltrator, in “Befriend and Betray” for Shaw TV (Canada). Recent series leads include two seasons playing Mutt Schitt on the CBC/Netflix runaway hit comedy “Schitt’s Creek” opposite comedy icons Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara and Chris Elliott, and playing the infamous lawman and charismatic gambler Doc Holliday for three seasons on the SyFy series “Wynonna Earp.” Last year Rozon had the series regular role of RCMP Constable Carson Myers, stand-up lawman and love interest, on the CBC series “Diggstown” opposite Natasha Henstridge and Vinessa Antoine. This year, he will be seen in the lead role of Isaac, lawyer turned outer space rogue, in the new SyFy series “Vagrant Queen.”
Rozon won a prestigious Gemini Award (the “Canadian Emmy”) for his performance in the series “Flashpoint” (CTV/CBS) and was nominated for another Gemini for work in “Befriend and Betray.” He was thrilled when “Wynonna Earp” won the People’s Choice Award for Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy show of 2018. Off camera, Rozon has many talents in the entertainment business. He is a voiceover actor, most notably voicing a leading role in the animated feature film The Legend of Sarila opposite Christopher Plummer and Genevieve Bujold. He produced the documentary feature Shuckers about the world of oysters and those who shuck them. And he is very proud of his work co- writing multiple Wynonna Earp graphic novels with creator Beau Smith for IDW. When not acting, Rozon plays the role of restaurateur in Montreal at his hit restaurants Garde Manger and Le Bremner opposite star chef Chuck Hughes.
