Natasha Bure Says It’s ‘Frustrating’ People Assume She Gets Roles Because Of Mom Candace Cameron Bure

Natasha Bure is forging her own path in the entertainment industry, separate from that of her mother, Candace Cameron Bure.
23-year-old Natasha Bure is a writer, singer and actress who says she would like to take on a "raw and gritty" dramatic role. She has worked with her Full House star mom in Hallmark films such as Switched for Christmas, where she portrayed Candace's daughter, and Aurora Teagarden: Haunted by Murder, where she played a teenage version of Candace's character.
However, she says coming from a famous family and sharing the screen with her mother doesn't mean she's being given roles.

"A lot of people are going to assume that if I even get a job or a job, it's from her," Natasha told TODAY via Zoom. "Or it's given to me or it's handed over to me, and honestly it's quite literally the opposite."
"I work hard for everything I do and I'm just grinding like everyone else out here trying to follow my dreams and make them come true," she continued. "I think that's a misunderstanding, which is a bit frustrating."

"It's a fight. I'm honestly just like every other person out there and I'm just trying to keep at it and do my best and keep all the acting skills constantly working," said Natasha. "It sure is difficult. I'm grinding, but I'm grateful for every opportunity I get and I'm just trying to do my best to get where I want to be."
Her acting goals include being in a drama series where she can do more "emotional stuff."
Natasha has been in the spotlight for years, but can't remember a moment when it "clicked" that her family was famous. "I really didn't know any other way," she shared, adding that as a teenager she thought, "Oh, isn't that how every family runs and works?"
“But honestly, my childhood was quite normal. My parents really just kept it cool," she said. Her father, Valeri Bure, played ten seasons in the National Hockey League.
These days, she says, when she's not auditioning or on set, she interacts with her fans online and creates content for her thousands of TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube followers.
"The whole reason I got on social media was because I didn't have an older sister and I just wanted someone to connect with and give me advice or show me how to do makeup" , Natasha – who has two brothers, Lev and Maksim – shared. "For me, it comes full circle when younger followers and fans alike seek out advice like this."
She calls social media "a passion" and enjoys "sharing my life and being authentic and connecting with people."
And when she's stuck, she often goes to her mother for career and life advice.
"One of the biggest pieces of advice she gave me, and she gave it to me a while ago, is to say yes to things that scare you and really do things that are outside of your comfort zone," Natasha shared With. "Because those are the types of experiences that will really drive you in your life."
Natasha said she's learned that accepting opportunities that may seem intimidating is "the best way to grow." She added, "It's never really a failure, even if it doesn't work out the way you envisioned it, because you're still growing to some capacity."
