Lori Loughlin is no stranger to the spotlight, first rising to fame on "Full House" almost 30 years ago. The actress stopped by to talk about her new Hallmark show, "When Calls the Heart," as well as what fans can expect from season four of "Fuller House."

Loughlin, who plays Abigail Stanton on the Hallmark period drama, discusses why she fought to make her character the town mayor in the show. Even though the show is set in the 1900s, she says a lot of the issues featured in the show are things that we're still dealing with today.

Loughlin also discusses the upcoming season of "Fuller House" and how grateful she is that fans took to the remake of the show so well. She says the fanbase was really excited to see the popular characters back. "Fuller House" has been true to what fans were looking for in the reboot, Loughlin adds.

"When Calls the Heart" airs Sundays at 9:00 ET on Hallmark Channel.
