Jodie Sweetin talks to Fox News about ‘Full House’ franchise received the first time an Emmy nomination, how she spends her days off, and if they ever let her children act.
It may have taken 30 years, but Jodie Sweetin couldn’t be more pleased that the “Full House” franchise finally received an Emmy nomination.
“It was very important for us,” Sweetin told Fox News during the Characteristic feature of the Summer TCA party in a house in Beverly Hills, California.
“This is a show that is a fan-favorite for 31 years, and people love it, but it never really included in the price ways,” the “Fuller House” star, 36, explained.
In July it became known that the “Fuller House” reboot was for an Emmy next month in the Outstanding Children’s Program category, the highlight of the comedy series’ first major award nomination since the original “Full House” aired on more than three decades ago, in 1987.
“And now we have a People’s Choice, and a Teen Choice for three years in a row, and Kid’s Choice awards, and now an Emmy nomination, it’s huge,” Sweetin continued. “It just feels like a reward for putting in the 30-something years to work.”

The star is proud of the endurance and the loyal fans of the franchise has developed.
“I do not think that there is probably a day that goes by that all of us are incredibly aware of what it is we do on the “Fuller House,” and how unique it is, and the fact that it is decades later from the original show, [it is] still immensely popular, perhaps more so than it was originally. That is pretty incredible,” Sweetin said, adding that the cast is also in the “awe” of the “great popularity of the show.”
When asked why she thinks that “Full House” is not the same recognition that the reboot is getting today, the actress said that it may have to do with the fact that the Netflix reboot “a bit more mature.”

“We have the audience of adults that are my age and [co-star] Candace [Cameron’s] age, in their late ’30,’ 40, who grew up watching us as children, and now have children of their own, can be a bit more mature,” Sweetin explained.
“We can get away with a little bit more,” she continued. “We have been appointed as one of the children, but it is not at all sugary. I mean, we are mad, and we do stunts, we do all sorts of crazy things on the show, but we have that ability to kind of walk the line a bit, and I don’t think the original show ever did, because it was almost pure child’s and family programming, and it just didn’t have 20 years to build up this enormous fan-base, that I think it is really popular today.”
Although most of Sweetin the time is spent on the “Fuller House” is set, the actress takes some time out with her daughters Beatrix, 7, and Zoie, a 10.
“When I’m not working, I have kid time,” the mother-of-two shared, adding that her girls “transform into such interesting creative people, so it’s fun to see how they become.”

Along with hanging out with her girls, Sweetin is also a book lover, who enjoys reading in her free time.
“I am a big book nerd,” Sweetin. “So [one] Sunday, I immersed myself in a book for 3 1/2, 4 hours on my couch, drank a cup of tea, and had quiet the time — it was beautiful. It doesn’t sound super exciting, but I love to do that, and also to exhibitions and concerts. So every chance I get to not be outside the cultural fun things, that is what I like to do.”
For if her kids will follow in mom’s acting footsteps? Sweetin said that despite them already appearing on ” Fuller House,” she is not sure. However, if they choose to start with regular, Sweetin says that she will “absolutely” support.
“I’d like them a little older just so that they can have a normal childhood,” she explained. “My younger doing martial arts. My oldest is in football. They keep track of those things. But a child. Do that for a while, find a number of other things. The company will always be there, and there will always be an opportunity to get in.”
