John Stamos shares sweet Olsen twins home video

By Chloe Best

As John Stamos prepares to reprise his role on the Full House sequel, he's been getting nostalgic about the popular sitcom's original incarnation. Ahead of Fuller House's premiere, the actor shared an old home video on Instagram, featuring his former co-stars Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen.

The short clip was filmed in Hawaii in August 1989 and shows John hugging the twins, who were just three-years-old at the time. Mary-Kate and Ashley look adorable as they walk over to their co-star in matching pink outfits, while a woman in the background can be heard saying: "Be nice to Jesse, give him a hug."

John played the twin's Uncle Jesse in the sitcom, and has reprised his role in the sequel Fuller House, which debuts on Netflix on 26 February. Mary-Kate and Ashley are the only original cast members not returning to the show as they continue to focus on their fashion empire.

The twins played Michelle Tanner in the sitcom, and while they appeared to have a good relationship with John in the video, he admitted that he once tried to get them sacked when they were younger.

"It's sort of true that the Olsen twins cried a lot," John revealed ay the Television Critics Association's press tour in August. "It was very difficult to get the shot. So I [gesturing], 'Get them out…!' That is actually 100 per cent accurate. They bought in a couple of unattractive redheaded kids.

"We tried that for a while and that didn't work. [Producers] were like, alright, get the Olsen twins back. And that's the story."

Although Mary-Kate and Ashley have decided not to return to the show, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarondos said there is still plenty of opportunity for them to change their minds in the future.

"There's a bunch of opportunity for them if they choose to," he said. "But they're not in the current creative."
