JOHANNESBURG - Disney Channel actor Cameron Boyce has died at the age of 20.
According to BCC, a family spokesperson said he passed away in his sleep after suffering a seizure on Saturday night.
The family spokesperson said: "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.”
A Disney Channel spokesperson told CNN Boyce would be dearly missed.
“He was an incredibly talented performer, a remarkably caring and thoughtful person and, above all else, he was a loving and dedicated son, brother, grandson and friend. We offer our deepest condolences to his family, castmates and colleagues and join his many millions of fans in grieving his untimely passing.”
The 20-year-old made his acting debut in the horror film Mirrors at the age of nine and was best known for roles in Disney's Descendants and the TV show Jessie.

my biggest crush growing up was Cameron Boyce, it was a long shot but with my fan page I found a way to make him notice me. He IS so brilliant, his soul IS so pure. He IS a perfect example of a sweetheart. It’s going to take me time to fully understand he’s gone but even though— ❤️ (@Brandonbaybe) July 7, 2019
