Who's the number one Full House fan? With all of the excitement over the upcoming Fuller House Netflix spinoff, that's kind of a difficult question, but fear not - we think we know who it is and the answer might surprise you. As it turns out, that honor goes to Jodie Sweetin, who couldn't be more eager for the series reboot to premiere.

Speaking to US Weekly, the 33-year-old former Full House actress could barely contain her enthusiasm over the opportunity to reprise her role as Stephanie Tanner, the sarcastic middle sister to DJ and Michelle Tanner. Jodie confessed to being "beyond thrilled" and explained why she's looking forward to taking part in the show.

"To say I'm excited, I don't think is quite an adequate term for it. I'm getting to do something and have an opportunity to be a part of something I hold incredibly dear to me, with people that are my family that I've known since I was 5 years old. To be able to go back and do this as an adult and really bring the Stephanie character back to life and who she is as an adult, who wouldn't be excited to be able to do that?"

We can practically feel Jodie's energy bursting from every word, but we can't blame her for being downright giddy over Fuller House. This role could do great things for reestablishing her acting career, especially considering her past issues with addiction and marital troubles, which she detailed in her 2009 memoir UnSweetined.

Also, Jodie was kind enough to reveal a few details on what we can expect from the adult Stephanie Tanner. "Steph has been a world traveler. She is a little bit of a free spirit," she said. "She's kind of an aspiring musician, she's been traveling all over. I think she's gonna be really fun to play."

It sounds like she'll be fun to watch too.
