Owned by Crown Media, the Hallmark movie channel has streamlined its holiday empire, shooting each movie in roughly three weeks, with a budget of approximately $2 million, according to Business Insider. Check out the careers of the stars of this year’s Hallmark Christmas movies — and learn how much these cast members are worth.
1. Candace Cameron Bure Net Worth: $10 Million
The Hallmark Channel schedule for the holidays wouldn’t be complete without Candace Cameron Bure, who stars in “Switched for Christmas,” alongside her daughter Natasha Bure. Best known as DJ Tanner on the 90’s nostalgia-filled classic sitcom “Full House” and its Netflix reboot “Fuller House,” she was also a member of the 2014 “Dancing With the Stars” cast and co-hosted “The View” from 2015 to 2017.
It’s unknown how much each project contributed to Candace Cameron Bure’s net worth. The actress and her husband purchased a $2.4 million Malibu, Calif. home in 2015.
