+Mary-Kate Olsen is left-handed and Ashley Olsen is right-handed. That is why throughout the show, Michelle uses both of her hands to write and eat.
+ Lori Loughlin (Rebecca) wears her own wedding dress when she and Jesse get married.
+ By the age of six, Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen, the twins who shared the role of Michelle, started to look so different that most audiences could tell them apart. It was considered to chose one twin over the other, and have just Mary-Kate Olsen play the role. However, their fan base at the time was so huge, and co-star John Stamos didn’t want one twin to leave the show, so both girls were kept in the role.
+ In order for the character Michelle to get involved with comedic and serious moments, Mary-Kate Olsen chose to do the former while Ashley Olsen did the latter.
+ Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen nearly left the show after the first season because their real-life mother was concerned about them missing out on having a “normal” childhood. After a significant raise in salary from the show’s producers, she agreed to let them continue. Their mother also let them stay due to the fact that they became so popular.
