    This is fantastic news. I’ve watched “Whatever It Takes” at least twenty times this past summer thinking that Marla needs to be on a new television show or in a new movie because she is truly splendid. Who could forget her as “Gia” on “Full House”?!? Congrats girl because you’ve been missed!

  • I like Marla Sokoloff, but I wish they’d get rid of Mike. He’s the one weak (and annoying) spot on an otherwise great show.

  • I’m not familiar with Marla but I’m so excited for this show to return. It has such heart and was my surprise hit of the season!

  • I can’t believe you didn’t mention her role as Stephanie Tanner’s BFF on Full House. How rude!!

  • When she was Gia on Full House she didn’t, but in this photo she looks like Hillary Duff’s identical twin

    • Samantha, that is EXACTLY what I was thinking.. I even looked super closely at it to make sure it was NOT her twin..
