Fuller House Actor Speaks Out On Lori Loughlin's Legal Woes
Actor Michael Campion spoke out on Lori Loughlin's part in the college admission scandal that has rocked Hollywood.
Despite her lack of public support following the fall out of the infamous Operation Varsity Blues sting, Lori Loughlin still has some supporters in the form of her 'Fuller House' castmates.
Speaking about the actress, who was reportedly dropped from the final season of the series following the scandal, Michael Campion, 16, who plays Jackon in the show, has revealed the cast has chosen to "move past" the event, insisting that the group will remain a "family" to the disgraced star.
"We will stand by her for any means necessary, but whatever happens in her life, that's out of our control, and if it affects the show, it affects the show," Campion said, as transcribed by Daily Mail.
He added that he hoped that the "negativity" would be forgotten about once the dramatic finale of 'Fuller House' airs, adding, that Loughlin "is great".
"All I have to say about Lori is that I love her and she's great and I've never had anything wrong against her. It is sad hearing about that," he said.
Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli -- along with fellow actress Felicity Huffman and several others -- were accused of paying $500,000 in bribes so that their daughters, Isabella Rose and Olivia Jade Giannulli, would be added to the University of Southern California crew team recruits -- despite having no experience in the sport.
It's not the first time Campion has spoken out on Loughlin's legal drama -- back in May, he again supported the actress, speaking to the MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) about how "sad" it was to lose her from the cast.
"It is kind of sad losing a member like that because I didn't think that she wasn't going to be on the show anymore but that was Netflix's decision. It is sad and I think that we're going to go on and honouring her on the show, she is our family after all," he explained.
Loughlin and Giannulli are charged with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and hoist services mail and wire fraud, as well as conspiracy to commit money laundering. They face up to 40 years in prison if convicted.
