Disney star Cameron Boyce suffered from epilepsy: family

The movie will still debut on the Disney Channel as scheduled on Friday, Aug. 2, but now it will be dedicated in Boyce's memory.

His on screen mother, Wendy Raquel and film director, and soon to be Disney Legend, Kenny Ortega, posted touching photos of Boyce as well as tear-jerking tributes regarding Cameron's passing.

"My son. Just hours before he was snatched from our lives", he captioned next to a shot of Cameron. Thank you, everyone, for encircling us with your love and respect of Cameron and concern for our family. He played Carlos, the son of Cruella de Vil, starting with 2015's "Descendants" and reprised the role in the 2017 sequel.

Maya says she was actually with Cameron in the hours before his death, and he seemed completely fine.

Now they have confirmed their initial findings in a brief statement, which reads: "Preliminary information suggests the death occurred under natural circumstances". "He was younger than me but taught me how to spread love and kindness more than anyone that has ever been in my life".

"From a young age, Cameron Boyce dreamed of sharing his extraordinary artistic talents with the world", said the spokesperson. He would whisper the dance moves to me on live television when I didn't know what I was doing, or hold my hand quietly to communicate wordlessly when we both knew we were thinking the same thing.

The young actor suffered from epilepsy and died as a result of a seizure which was related to his condition.

Two days later, "an autopsy was performed and the cause and manner of death were deferred pending additional testing", the coroner said.

He also starred in "Mirrors", "Eagle Eye" with Shia LaBeouf and "Grown Ups" with Adam Sandler.

Boyce was set to appear in the comedy series "Mrs. Fletcher", which is set to hit HBO this fall.

"I'm so saddened by the passing of Cameron Boyce, " a fan named Emma tweeted.
