The 'Full House' actress condemns the 'horrific' abuse committed by Brian Peck against the former Nickelodeon star and applauds the actor for bravely sharing his story.

AceShowbiz - Candace Cameron Bure has strongly condemned the recently released docuseries "Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV," calling it "horrific and disgusting."

Bure, who rose to fame as a child star on "Full House," watched the first few episodes of the series and was deeply affected by the revelations. "It broke my heart," she said.

She praised Drake Bell, another former child star, for bravely sharing his story of abuse. However, she expressed sympathy for his parents, who tried to protect him but may not have recognized the signs.

"I was very - I don't think proud is the right word - but I just felt like the fact that Drake [Bell] was able to share his story was so brave. But my heart breaks for him. My heart broke for his parents, trying to protect [him] and not always seeing the signs."

Bure acknowledged that not all child actors have negative experiences, as she and her colleagues from "Full House" were fortunate to have supportive parents. However, she recognized that many others have faced abuse and exploitation.

She emphasized the importance of raising awareness about this issue to prevent it from happening to the next generation. She believes that the docuseries can help protect children in the industry.

Bure's experience on "Full House" was positive, as her parents were constantly present and protective. The show was later revived as "Fuller House," which followed her character D.J. Tanner as an adult. The spinoff ran for five seasons from 2016 to 2020.
