(TV) family matters! Bob Saget and his former Full House costar Ashley Olsen had a mini reunion backstage at his opening night performing on Broadway play Hand to God on Friday, Nov. 6.
“Loved having my dear friend Ashley Olsen at my welcoming opening of @HandToGodBway last night with the brilliant cast I get to act with: Steven Boyer, Geneva Carr, Sarah Stiles, and Michael Oberholtzer,” he captioned a sweet snapshot on Instagram on Saturday, Nov. 7. “Almost time for the matinee today. Can’t wait.”
Saget, 59, famously played Danny Tanner on the hit ‘80s and ‘90s sitcom, while Olsen, 29, was one of two child actresses who played his beloved daughter, Michelle Tanner (Ashley’s twin sister Mary-Kate also played the role).
Earlier this year, Lifetime aired the Unauthorized Full House Story, a fictionalized movie depicting the behind-the-scenes drama of the family-friendly series.
John Stamos, who played Uncle Jesse on the show, told reporters that as the Lifetime movie suggested, he had actually once suggested that the Olsen twins be replaced.
“It is sort of true that the Olsen twins cried a lot,” the 52-year-old actor said on a panel for his Fox show, Grandfathered. “It was very difficult to get the shot. So that is actually 100 percent accurate.”
Stamos will be joined by Saget, Jodie Sweetin, Dave Coulier, Lori Loughlin, Candace Cameron Bure, and Andrea Barber from the original Full House cast for Netflix’s forthcoming Fuller House spinoff, which began production this past July; the Olsen twins will not be taking part.
