Cameron Boyce Star of ‘Jessie’ and ‘Descendants’ Has Died at Age 20

Disney Channel star Cameron Boyce has passed away at age 20.

He was most known for playing Luke Ross on the Disney Channel show Jessie and then playing Cruella De’Ville’s son Carlos in the popular Descendants films.

The family spokesperson has issued a statement that said:

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.

The Disney Channel has also released a statement early this morning:

From a young age, Cameron Boyce dreamed of sharing his extraordinary artistic talents with the world. 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. He will be dearly missed.

Thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and fans at this time.
