Following the tragic death of a co-founding member of The Supremes, Mary Wilson, many took to social media to offer their condolences. “Fuller House” star Candace Cameron Bure was just one of many celebrities to express their grief after Wilson passed away. 

Shortly after Wilson’s publicist, Jay Schwartz, announced the news, and Bure took to Instagram to express her sadness. 

“I had the pleasure of sitting next to Ms. Mary Wilson at an Oscar dinner party in 2018. It was a wonderful night and chatting with her was the cherry on top. God bless her soul.”

Wilson died Monday at the age of 76 at her Nevada home. The family nor her publicist gave a cause of death.

Candace Cameron Bure Defends Hallmark Career

Bure has continued her acting career well into her adult life. Recently, she’s become a standard fixture on the Hallmark Channel. Whether it’s a Hallmark holiday movie or the Aurora Teagarden Mysteries film series, Bure is a pervasive figure on the family friendly network.

However, she recently responded to the backlash she’s received as some people assume that working for the family-friendly channel is a relatively easy thing to do. Bure was quick to give her honest opinion on the comments. 

Former ABC News correspondent Paula Faris recently interviewed Bure for her podcast, The Paul Faris Podcast. During the interview, Bure was candid on various topics, including working on the channel and the unseen difficulty it brings. 

“Can we just talk about this for a second? I get that all the time,” Bure began. “How hard is it to be in a Hallmark movie?’ Like, ‘Can I be in a Hallmark movie?’ And I’m like, ‘Are you a professional actor?’ ‘No.’ ‘Then no, you cannot.'”

Bure has appeared in a total of 26 Hallmark Channel films. Most notably, the channel featured Bure in nine holiday-themed movies. 

However, her most prominent role on the channel is that of librarian and part-time detective Aurora Teagarden in the Aurora Teagarden Mysteries film series. With this franchise, Bure usually appears in at least one to two Aurora Teagarden movies annually.
