Natasha Bure Talks 1st Feature Role
The daughter of famous Christian actress Candace Cameron Bure is in a new faith-based film of her own.
Even at 20 tender years of age, Natasha Bure is no stranger to the limelight, having already acted in TV movies, authored a book and built a following of hundreds of thousands on social media. But her latest role is her first in a feature film.
The movie's called Faith, Hope & Love and it comes from Christian actor, writer and director Robert Krantz, who plays the lead - the widower father of Bure's character. There are other big-name members of the cast, including Christian actor Corbin Bernsen, Ed Asner and professional dancer Peta Murgatroyd, who plays the lead actress in her film debut.
In an interview with The Christian Post, Bure said she wanted to take the role "because of how awesome the message is behind the film," which is a romantic comedy about two emotionally wounded people who come together through a dance contest. Being a Christian herself, Bure adds she tries to live her life in a way that demonstrates her beliefs.
"I would hope that my actions reflect my faith and that people would see a light in me."
Being in the media spotlight at such a young age is no doubt quite a challenge, but Bure sounds like she is well aware of her need to hold fast to her identity in Christ.
"I try to be the person that God made me to be. It's not always simple and easy. It takes a lot of work, but it's something I do strive to achieve every day, especially now more than ever, as I now have a bunch of eyeballs on me."
It may, however, prove a bit of a challenge to put your eyeballs on her performance in Faith, Hope & Love. The movie debuted last weekend, but is only playing in about 20 theaters. Bure recently gave an on-camera interview to ET about the film, though, and you can watch that via this link.
