More details were released on why Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will not appear on Fuller House.
It was extraordinary news when it was revealed that the gang from the classic sitcom Full House would reprise their roles for the Netflix revival. But unfortunately, the Olsen twins decided to not come back to play Michelle Tanner.
In a report from People on Wednesday, executive producer Bob Boyett explained the sisters' reason for not returning. Not only does it have to do with time, but a lot of it is because the girls aren't part of the acting business anymore.
"Ashley said, I have not been in front of the camera since I was 17 and I don't feel comfortable acting," Boyett said of the twin who is now 29. "Mary-Kate said, It would have to be me because Ash doesn't want to do it. But the timing is so bad for us."
Dave Coulier, who played Joey on the sitcom, then explained that the twins probably don't have the same types of memories the other cast members had since they were less than a year old when they started the series.
"They're family members," Coulier said. "But I think they have a different perspective. When we get together and we reminisce, they were babies [at the time]. So they don't share those same memories. I can't really speak for them but I would understand why they don't have the same sentiments that we all do."
Fuller House premieres on Friday, February 26 on Netflix.
