Stars Pay Tribute To Cameron Boyce, Who Sadly Passed Away Saturday

The young star, who starred in cult-favourite Disney movies and tv shows such as Descendants and Jessie, tragically died of a seizure in his sleep on Saturday (July 6). Cameron Boyce was aged only 20 when he passed away and beloved by many, including his co-stars and friends Dove Cameron (who starred on Descendants with him), Peyton List, and Skai Jackson (fellow Jessie co-stars), to name a few.

“It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron,” said a spokesperson for the family. “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.”

Several celebs and fellow co-stars who knew him personally also took to social media (although many preferred to grieve privately, including Jessie stars Debby Ryan and Karan Brar), to pay their respects when the tragic news broke.
