Cameron Boyce's Death refers to the epileptic seizure that killed Disney Channel actor Cameron Boyce in his sleep at the age of 20. Boyce was known for his roles in Disney's Descendants, Jessie, Grown Ups and Mirrors.


On July 7th, 2019, A spokesperson on behalf of the Boyce Family confirmed the death of Cameron Boyce to ABC News[1]. They stated:

"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."

That day, TMZ[2] reported that Boyce was found unresponsive by a roommate and pronounced dead at the scene.
