Michael Campion’s fame is rising as he stars as Jackson Fuller on Netflix’s revival Fuller House, which premieres season two today. Just like the original cast used Full House as a launching pad for their careers, Campion is ready for the fame. “I get stopped sometimes and take a picture with them. More people may recognize me after season two. I don’t think it’s going to get to the point anywhere near John Stamos.” (Just remember Mary-Kate & Ashley were babies on the show and went on to make millions later in life…Michael Campion is set to take on Hollywood).
Returning for a second season, Campion says it feels like home. “It was a blast. We are all pretty much like a family now. We don’t do any events without each other. We are all pretty tight.”
“The first episode is getting out of summer. Ramona went to a dance camp. I came back from something else. It goes through all the holiday episodes – Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s. Stephanie gets a love interest. Kimmy gets a brother. Lots of things happen between me and Ramona. It’s a jam packed season for sure.”
If he were to write for Jackson, what would he want his character to do? “Honestly, I am kind of Jackson in real life. He’s more of a heightened version of me. Everyday stuff, I really like Star Wars. I’m a huge nerd. I’m into that stuff.”
Campion has a full week schedule, including school on set. “I have to balance school and work. I do a minimum of three hours a day. Tuesdays and Wednesdays we have rehearsal. Thursday we pre-shoot all the scenes and Friday is my favourite day of the week, because the live audience comes in. At the end we have a pizza party. The energy is so high. Rod, our crowd entertainer is so funny. ”
Fuller House – Seasons 1 and 2 – is streaming now on Netflix.
