Are you Hallmarked and Lifetimed out, but still want fun, family entertainment for the holidays? Well, get your jammies, your favorite mug of whatever you put in your favorite mug (so the kids won’t know you’re drinking it) and boot up Netflix for Season 4 of Fuller House premiering Tuesday, December 4.
Actor Michael Campion is back as Jackson Fuller, the teen son of CJ Tanner played by Candace Cameron-Bure. The show’s original bunch of kids are all grown up with kids of their own. CJ’s back in the family home with her sister Stephanie and bestie Kimmy. You’ll love seeing how your favorite family member fared (Uncle Jesse is holding up really well… really well) and your kids will love seeing how their kids handle the family’s crazy antics.
Campion’s the oldest of the second generation. His comic timing portraying adorably awkward Jackson plays off the older cast perfectly, while he clicks with the younger kids. “I was a fan of the original show,” Campion says of the reruns, “Everybody is really close and the bond from 30 years ago is still going on.”
His skills as an entertainer at age 16 are not surprising, as Campion’s been acting since five-years-old in commercials, short films and theatre. He appeared in stage productions of The Wizard of Oz, Annie, The Little Mermaid and feature films Christmas Trade, Robo-Dog, Robo-Dog Unleased and more. “I enjoy comedy,” he says, “but I think drama is another way to go further in my career.”
With a full plate of skills to draw from, this actor, trained in hip hop dance, church singing and magic, recently got accepted into The Magic Castle Jr. Program. And yes, he’d love to do Dancing with the Stars.
So what’s next? “I’m getting my driver’s license,” Campion chuckles, “I don’t think I want to drive in L.A. though.”
