Actor Cameron Boyce Died from a Seizure Caused by Epilepsy, Family Says

LOS ANGELES – The family of Disney channel star Cameron Boyce, who passed away last week at age 20, said on Wednesday that he died from a seizure caused by epilepsy.

“We are still trying to navigate our way through this extremely heart-wrenching time, and continue to ask for privacy so that the family and all who knew and loved him can grieve his loss and make arrangements for his funeral – which in and of itself, is agonizing,” the actor’s family said in a statement, published by American media.

On Monday, the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office said that it had performed an autopsy on the actor but it has yet to release an official cause of death.

“There are no words to describe how moved we are by the tremendous outpouring of love and support from our family, friends, and the world. Thank you, everyone, for encircling us with your love and respect of Cameron and concern for our family,” Boyce’s family said in the statement.

The actor, who was known for his roles in TV movie “Descendants” (2015) and the series “Jessie” (2011-2015), died on Saturday in Los Angeles.

Born in Los Angeles, Boyce made his acting debut in the horror movie “Mirrors” (2008) at the age of nine.

He went on to star in films such as “Grown Ups” (2010) and “Grown Ups 2” (2013), in which he played one of Adam Sandler’s children.

The young actor spent much of his time involved in charity work.

He was a presenter at former vice-president Joe Biden’s Courage Awards in March this year.

Boyce received the Pioneering Spirit Award in 2018 for his work raising $30,000 to build wells of drinking water in Swaziland with the non-profit Thirst Project.

The sudden death of Boyce, who had 8.1 million followers on Instagram, has led to a huge outpouring of grief on social media by his fans.
