Missing Cameron Boyce One Year After His Early Death
It’s hard to believe that one year ago today Disney star Cameron Boyce tragically died of epilepsy at the age of 20. On July 6, 2019, Cameron was found unresponsive in his North Hollywood home, following a seizure due to epilepsy.
Initially his death was reported to be due to an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated. The Los Angeles County coroner’s office released a report on July 31, 2019 stating that his death was natural, a “sudden unexpected death in epilepsy,” following an autopsy and testing.
Cameron Boyce died just a month before the release of “Descendants 3,” in which he was once again starring as Carlos, the son of Cruella de Vil. When the film was released on the Disney Channel, a touching tribute was included to celebrate the life and work of the longtime Disney star.
People.com summed up the tribute:
“The tribute featured smiling footage and photos of Boyce throughout his years on the Disney Channel, including his time on Jessie, in which he appeared for four seasons alongside star Debby Ryan.
A clip of Michelle Obama‘s guest appearance on Jessie was also featured, including the moment Boyce happily exclaimed “I made her laugh!” as he hugged the former First Lady.
Additionally, the montage included videos of him dancing, acting, laughing, embracing his Descendants castmates, smiling with his family, and wrapped with a young Boyce auditioning with a script in hand.
“Everything you are, every smile, every laugh, every dance, every hug, every moment, everyone you touched … you mean everything to us,” text throughout the tribute reads.”
For the premiere of “Descendants 3,” stars Dove Cameron and Booboo Stewart, along with director Kenny Ortega, spoke with Nightline about the passing of Cameron and his impact on their work:

Upon receiving an award for his efforts to bring awareness to the global water crisis, Cameron stated:
“We all go … I hope that all of you think about what it is that you want to leave. We all have material things, we all have things that we own and we like, treat ourselves and all that stuff but what you leave behind should be bigger than you. And I really believe that.”
In 2019 the Cameron Boyce Foundation was established to honor Cameron’s legacy and to fight to reduce gun violence and cure epilepsy.
