Former child star Cameron Boyce has died. His family confirmed the Disney star died in his sleep on Saturday after suffering a seizure. He was 20.
A spokesperson for the family said his seizure was the result of an "ongoing medical condition" for which he was being treated. The spokesperson did not disclose the medical condition.
"It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron... 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," the family's statement read.
"We are utterly heartbroken and ask for privacy during this immensely difficult time as we grieve the loss of our precious son and brother," it added.
Cameron was best known for his roles as the freckle-faced kid in Disney Channel's Descendants and the Grown Ups movies with Adam Sandler.
He shot to fame in the Disney Channel TV show Jessie, starring as Luke Ross, alongside Debby Ryan (who played Jessie Prescott).
Cameron was best known for his role in the Disney Channel TV movie franchise Descendants - in which he played Carlos, the son of Cruella De Vil.
The third Descendants movie, directed by Kenny Ortega, is due to be released in August.
A spokesman for the Disney Channel offered their condolences to Cameron's family, and paid tribute to the "incredibly talented performer".
"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. He will be dearly missed."
Fans of the young star poured out their grief in millions of posts on social media sites. His last post on Instagram, dated July 5, shows a B&W portrait taken from iD magazine's Superstar Issue, Winter 2018. That post garnered over 3 million views and nearly 800,000 comments in 24 hours.
