'Fuller House' actor Juan Pablo Di Pace says 'high energy' triple wedding in finale is the perfect ending
Di Pace tells MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) that the final episodes will be leading up to the big 'triple wedding' which will see Kimmy wed Fernando, DJ marry Steve and Stephanie marry Jimmy
On June 2, the final episodes of Netflix's 'Full House' reboot, 'Fuller House' is set to make its way to the streaming platform. MEA Worldwide (MEAWW) reached out to Juan Pablo Di Pace, who plays Kimmy Gibbler's (Andrea Barber) ex-husband/current fiance, Fernando Hernandez-Guerrero-Fernandez-Guerrero, on what fans can expect in the final episodes.
Di Pace tells us that the final episodes will be leading up to the big "triple wedding" which will see Kimmy wed Fernando, DJ Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure) marry her high school sweetheart, Steve Hale (Scott Weinger) and Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) marry Jimmy Gibbler (Adam Hagenbuch).
He says the farewell episodes will be filled with "hijinks and the buffoonery of preparing for the wedding," including episodes featuring getting the wedding dresses, the bachelor and bachelorette parties, and finally, the day of the wedding. He tells us that these are all "high octane, high energy" episodes.
Di Pace says that fans will get to see some bonding time for the male characters as the trio head for their bachelor party at an ax-throwing bar, which he says is just so "dumb and ridiculous." He also says there is more bonding between the guys this season than ever before and that fans can expect scenes between Jimmy and Fernando, as well as Steve, Fernando and Jimmy.
He adds, "The three of us definitely have more moments and it's really sweet because we haven't seen those interactions before. I believe this season the writers really wanted to explore different relationships and dynamics, so you will see characters that you're not used to seeing together in one scene and have really lovely moments."
When Di Pace joined the cast, he did not come with a huge amount of knowledge about 'Full House' as he was not exposed to it as a kid in Argentina. When he came into the 'Fuller House' family, he felt he got a "really healthy beginning," and he discovered as he went along. It only dawned on Di Pace how big it was as he started shooting in front of a live audience. While he found it daunting them, he felt it was an "awesome experience" to jump into something so "epic from the get-go."
Di Pace has many special moments from shooting for the show and he tells us that "these are people who will forever be my family," and that the cast was sad after filming ended. He says, "What I take from this experience is great friendships, great relationships, and just a tone of memories."
He tells us, "Fernando came at a point where I really needed that light, crazy, ridiculous, buffoonish sort of quality in my life. He taught me not to take myself seriously at all." Di Pace is all praise for Andrea Barber, saying "she originated that sort of kooky, weird character that we grew to love, she was the original weirdo in sitcoms." He tells us that working with her was incredible because she's a "comedic genius."
Di Pace also created his own web series, 'Minutiae', which he also stars in during the pandemic lockdown. He tells us that at the core, he's a storyteller, so he found it exciting to start directing and producing the web series. 'Minutiae' features a "neurotic character called Tomas and his interactions with the world, his therapist, and his family." Di Pace tells us that it is about the little minutia of life that are only "important in our heads because it really isn't." He says, "It's a chance to laugh at myself and laugh at the human spirit because we are funny." A new episode drops every Thursday at 2 PM PST on Di Pace's YouTube channel.
Di Pace is also a singer and is working on his EP that he tells us will be out this summer. He has been working on it for four years and tells MEAWW that "it really is a piece of music that represents me truly." As his final words for fans of 'Fuller House', he tells us, "be ready to have a ride with these last nine episodes, we were so happy and sad to make them."
He adds, "If there is an ending to the show, this is a perfect ending to the series because it truly encompasses what this show is about, all the relationships that we've grown to love and tons of fun." 'Fuller House' Season 5B will be available to stream on Netflix on June 2 at 12 am PST.
