Candace Cameron Bure Says Quiet on Set Documentary ‘Broke My Heart’: ‘Horrific and Disgusting’

“There’s lots of child actors who don’t have that experience but we know there’s a good plenty that have,” said Bure

Candace Cameron Bure has two words to describe the docuseries Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV: “horrific and disgusting.”

The actress, 48, who rose to fame as a child star on Full House, said that she “watched the first few episodes” of the series, which “broke my heart.”

“It’s so tragic, it’s horrific and disgusting,” Bure said during an appearance on The View on Friday, April 12. “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 said that growing up as a kid in the industry was a “weird thing.”

“I didn’t have that experience. I know the other girls from our show didn’t have that experience, and there’s lots of child actors who don’t have that experience,” she continued. “But we know there’s a good plenty that have.”

The mother of three believes it was “good” that the docuseries was released, as it raises “more awareness that we can protect the next generation from that happening.”

Further speaking about her experience growing up on Full House, which ran for eight seasons from 1987 to 1995, Bure said, “My parents were always around. They were so protective.”

The show was later revised through the Netflix spinoff Fuller House, which followed Bure’s character, D.J. Tanner, as an adult navigating life as a widowed mother. The series ran for five seasons from 2016 to 2020.

In the docuseries, Bell, 37, revealed that he was s*xually assaulted by Nickelodeon dialogue coach Brian Peck when he was 15. In 2004, Peck pleaded no contest to a charge of oral copulation with a minor under 16 as well as a charge of performing a lewd act with a 14- or 15-year-old. He spent 16 months in prison and was mandated to register as a s*x offender.

“It was the first time that I’ve really spoken about this to a stranger. It’s not my family or people I worked with who were close to me, who supported me throughout the years,” he explained during an Emmys For Your Consideration (FYC) panel about the docuseries on Tuesday, April 9.

The actor noted that he’s “still kind of reeling with the idea of this all being my soul, kind of being bared to the world.”
