Disney Actor Cameron Boyce Dies at 20

Playing

Cameron Boyce, who captured young hearts on the Disney Channel, died after having a seizure. He was 20.

A spokesperson for his family confirmed that the actor died Saturday morning. 

"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 representative said. "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."

Boyce grew up on the big and small screens. He got his start at just 9 years old in the horror flick "Mirrors," playing the son of Kiefer Sutherland and Paula Patton. 

Two years later he played the son of another Hollywood heavyweight, taking on the role of Adam Sandler's kid in "Grown Ups," which he reprised for the movie's sequel as well.

The young actor then found a home on the Disney Channel. In the 2015 TV fantasy movie "Descendants," he played Carlos, the son of Cruella de Vil. The movie got two sequels, both with Boyce continuing his role, and the actor voiced that character as well in several animated spin-offs.

Also on the Disney Channel, Boyce played Luke Ross in "Jessie," one of the wealthy children the title character is hired to look after in their parents' absence. The show lasted four seasons from 2011 to 2015.

Boyce's co-stars and fellow actors flooded social media with tributes and memories.
