Then + Now: Andrea Barber from ‘Full House’

Andrea Barber Full House
Warner Bros. Television

You remember her best as dim-witted wild child Kimmy Gibbler on ‘Full House,’ but what has actress Andrea Barber done since then?


From 1987 to 1995, Andrea Barber played Kimmy Gibbler, DJ’s bestie and a frequently uninvited guest in the Tanner household. Kimmy was stylish and fun, but she lacked common sense and wasn’t nearly as bright as her BFF. She hung around for the show’s entire run, learning lots of life lessons from Danny Tanner along the way (like we all did).

Barber quit showbiz after ‘Full House,’ but she didn’t follow the destructive path of so many of her child-actor peers — instead, she studied English at California’s Whittier College, and later got her Master’s in Women’s Studies from the University of York in England, proving she’s nothing like her TV alter-ego.

She got married in 2002, had two kids, and currently works as an assistant to the director of Whittier College’s Office of International Programs.

In other words? She’s doing pretty great.
