CAMERON BOYCE became a Disney sensation after starring in the Disney TV series Jessie. The actor has died following a seizure in his sleep.
Cameron Boyce made his acting debut at the age of nine. Fame and success can be tough on child actors but Boyce’s career went from strength to strength, having appeared in the horror film Mirrors and the long-running TV series General Hospital, followed by a stint in the Adam Sandler movie Grown Ups as one of the Hollywood star's onscreen children. His ascendency reached new heights after he landed a role in the Disney TV series Jessie, which lead him to star in the Disney franchise Descendants.
Sadly, the actor’s life has come to an untimely end at the age of just 20, his family has announced. The cause of death is "an ongoing medical condition". A family spokesperson told ABC : "It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron.
"He passed away in his sleep due to a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated.
"The world is now undoubtedly without one of its brightest lights, but his spirit will live on through the kindness and compassion of all who knew and loved him.”
"We are utterly heartbroken and ask for privacy during this immensely difficult time as we grieve the loss of our precious son and brother," added his parents Libby and Victor Boyce and his actor sister Maya.
